I need some ideas for my Cisco lab
Posted on 2010-04-05
Alright, I've got a small rack of Cisco equipment in my room that I learn on.
AFFORDABLE is the main idea here... most of this stuff I've acquired as free hand-me-downs from upgrading companies or purchased used off of eBay.
Right now I have a Cisco MC3810 router that I'm not really sure how to use. It has a DVM port and a T1 port on it. I kind of want to simulate a T1 line, which would require another router with a special cable between the T1 ports, correct? Is there anything I can do with the Digital Voice Module?
Currently I have an 871W router, a Catalyst 2950 switch, two Catalyst 3500 switches, an Aironet WAP, and the 3810 referred to above.
I kind of want to throw a modem into the mix somehow and possibly a firewall. Any ideas of how I should do this or what else I should throw into the mix and how?
Thanks! Remember, just looking for possibly ideas here. All are welcome! I'd even welcome just hearing about what you have in your lab!
