Hardcore Studying

Hi All,
Happy Easter Celebrations to everyone.
I have been extremely busy these past few weeks and I hardly have anytime to create a detailed post. Merging work with studies hasn't been as easy as I thought :(

I am trying to see if i can put in approx 40hrs a week till my security lab in June...That should average to about 320 - 350 hrs of study before the security lab day. Currently using INE materials with gradedlabs rackrental. The Equipments are a little old though. Ild like to try out the proctorlabs if I can fit it into the budget.

I noticed that when connecting to the Workstations remotely either using VNC or Remote desktop;

1. Do not change the Adapter settings for the external interface.
2. Do not set another default gateway for the Lab interface as multiple default gateways confuse the Windows operating system.
3. Watch out for split tunnels when using EZVPN... You can lose your connection if you don't specify the split tunnel as the TestPC would attempt to route all INTERNET traffic through the EZVPN Tunnel.

Have fun studying...



  1. A lot more grease to your elbow man. Keep being an inspiration to us and all d best wity your studies.

  2. Hey man, I'm in the same boat...going to School part time, working 40 + and going for the CCIE Security. Planning to take the written at Cisco Networkers this're solid inspiration good luck!
