Hi,
I m new to networking configuration / implementation. I was doing cisco router / switches configuration about 7 years ago so i know fundamental concepts and can also recall commands quickly for routing and switching.  But recently did not touch the console  for the last 7 years and the technology has changed a lot,
Now i am also going to be involved not only in R & S , but also security , wireless , IPT , Data Center ,  cisco + other vendors like juniper , F5 , bluecoat etc..... i need help for below...
1) i have portable command ref. guide for Routers and switches and i like them, are these available for other areas also ? please send links for the same , i am looking in electronic formats.
2) For the implementation documents like LLD , etc.... is there any guide which could help with examples
3) other tools (open source) that can make life easier for config /troubleshooting or LLD purposes ?
4) any other open suggestions are also welcomed......

Thanx

Hi,

Since you have already worked on Cisco so you must be familiar with CLI on switches and routers. For firewalls and UTM you can start with the below links;

http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/hardware/netscreen-systems/translated/ug_ns-5000.pdf

For data center, uptime and other sites have good materials/articles;

Let me know what else you want to know so that I can send you something specific for you.

Hi,
Actually I am not looking for long documents , would be great if i can get something which is focused on useful information on normal  day to day configuration tasks only. I can download all the documentation myself as we are cisco gold and we have many Adv Tech certs also.

-> any vendor has configuration guides (be it be juniper or cisco ) - for cisco configuration guides and command references are good place to start, it would be impossible to mention them here as they are per protocol and per IOS platform.

-> For Juniper they have KB section which is good and also path finder and Dayone books library .

-> I would suggest not to worry too much on commands, they are mostly the same, but for your handson sake you can give them a try a lot of simulators are available (cisco - gns3,iou) , juniper (vmx,oilve,vsrx)

Suggestion:

Spend a day or two installing these devices (one end juniper and one end cisco) and configure basic protocols, in this way you would be proficient with both the vendors. Let me know if you require any help

Thanks
PERFECT GAME
