CCNA BGP configuration and troubleshooting: Cisco CCNA prep

Prepare for the BGP exam topic in the CCNA 200-125 or 200-105 exams. You need to learn BGP for your exam! Get prepared.

Created by David Bombal - CCIE #11023, over 15 years of network training experience

"]

Students: 23963, Price: Free

The Cisco CCNA exam now requires that you know BGP. This is the exam topic Cisco have listed for the exam: "Configure and verify single-homed branch connectivity using eBGP IPv4 (limited to peering and route advertisement using Network command only)"

In this course you will learn the basics of BGP as well as investigate multiple troubleshooting scenarios to help you prepare for the exam.

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is an exterior gateway protocol designed to exchange routing and reachability information among autonomous systems (AS) on the Internet. The protocol is often classified as a path vector protocol but is sometimes also classed as a distance-vector routing protocol. The Border Gateway Protocol makes routing decisions based on paths, network policies, or rule-sets configured by a network administrator and is involved in making core routing decisions.

BGP may be used for routing within an autonomous system. In this application it is referred to as Interior Border Gateway Protocol, Internal BGP, or iBGP. In contrast, the Internet application of the protocol may be referred to as Exterior Border Gateway Protocol, External BGP, or eBGP.

BGP4 is standard for Internet routing, required of most Internet service providers (ISPs) to establish routing between one another. Very large private IP networks use BGP internally. An example is the joining of a number of large Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) networks, when OSPF by itself does not scale to the size required. Another reason to use BGP is multihoming a network for better redundancy, either to multiple access points of a single ISP or to multiple ISPs.

Cisco CCNA: The A, B, C’s of IPv6

Take this course to gain an understanding on Network and Security in Cisco CCNA - specifically focusing on IPv6.

Created by Lazaro Diaz - Network Engineer, Author teaching Cisco, CompTIA & Microsoft

"]

Students: 22631, Price: Free

This course is approximately 4 hours in length and will cover IPv6 protocol in detail. I will compare the differences between the IPv4 to IPv6, and the benefits that IPv6 brings to the future of networking.

DISCLAIMER:   Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer and/or VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.

Students will get a thorough understanding of IPv6 and how we would implement it in a real world environment.

We will discuss the format of an IPv6 address, and breakdown the different components, like the Network Prefix, Interface ID, what each 16 bit section does and specifically the subnetting section of IPv6. We will learn about the new types of addresses that comes with IPv6, its configurations using RIPng, EIGRP for IPv6, OSPFv3 using both static assigned addresses and the EUI-64 format. We will also learn about the transition methods such as ISATAP, 6to4, and NAT-PT.

This is a lecture based course using the Touch-IT Technology Smart board, which will make learning very interactive and engaging. Hands on labs will be used to drill down the concepts learned in each lecture using Cisco’s Packet Tracer.

My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give the most needed hands on experience!

Handouts will be available to facilitate learning and practice.

This course will help the student become familiar with the use of IPv6, recognizing IPv6 addresses and how to implement them in your environment…but it will also help in preparing for any networking certification or Computer Science Degree; not to mention the fact that for those already in the field, it will further improve routing decisions in their particular networks.

Cisco CCNA Lab Options

All the physical and virtual options for your Cisco CCNA Lab explained

Students: 20207, Price: Free

The Cisco Certified Network Associate certification is THE best qualification you can achieve to turbo charge your career in networking. Cisco are far and away the market leader in network infrastructure products, and passing the CCNA proves to employers that you have the necessary skills to design, build and maintain their enterprise networks.

Passing the exam requires you to understand the theory of a wide range of network technologies, and also have the practical skills to configure and troubleshoot them. This is where having a home lab comes in. It's absolutely essential that you have hands on practice on the network devices, not just for passing the exam but also so you develop real world skills you can use in the workplace.

The multitude of possible ways you can build a lab can be very confusing. There are physical labs, virtual labs, software simulators, and they all have their own benefits and drawbacks. Making the right choice is difficult when you don't know the implications of each option.

That's why I'm here to help. I use live demos to explain all the available options, break down the advantages and disadvantages of each, and tell you where you can find further information detailing how to put each one together.

Please note that I don't give step by step instructions about how to build each lab in this course. I do tell you where you can find this information, so there was no need to reinvent the wheel. Rather I explain what the different options are and help you make the decision on which one is best for you.

Here is a brief overview of Ethernet from Wikipedia:

Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN) and wide area networks (WAN). It was commercially introduced in 1980 and first standardized in 1983 as IEEE 802.3, and has since been refined to support higher bit rates and longer link distances. Over time, Ethernet has largely replaced competing wired LAN technologies such as token ring, FDDI and ARCNET.

The original 10BASE5 Ethernet uses coaxial cable as a shared medium, while the newer Ethernet variants use twisted pair and fiber optic links in conjunction with hubs or switches. Over the course of its history, Ethernet data transfer rates have been increased from the original 2.94 megabits per second (Mbit/s) to the latest 100 gigabits per second (Gbit/s). The Ethernet standards comprise several wiring and signaling variants of the OSI physical layer in use with Ethernet.

Systems communicating over Ethernet divide a stream of data into shorter pieces called frames. Each frame contains source and destination addresses, and error-checking data so that damaged frames can be detected and discarded; most often, higher-layer protocols trigger retransmission of lost frames. As per the OSI model, Ethernet provides services up to and including the data link layer.

Since its commercial release, Ethernet has retained a good degree of backward compatibility. Features such as the 48-bit MAC address and Ethernet frame format have influenced other networking protocols. The primary alternative for some uses of contemporary LANs is Wi-Fi, a wireless protocol standardized as IEEE 802.11.

Cisco is one of the largest and most famous companies in the world which produce different types of networking devices and solutions. CCNA is the most basic certification and one of the most wanted ones. The reason CCNA is so much important is it includes lots of fundamental information which can help learners to build a solid foundation for their future even if they work with other brands products. This is the first part of the Cisco CCNA 200-301 which will be publishing overtime.

In this part, the basic foundation you need to build for a successful journey have been covered. This part starts with emphasizing why Cisco is so important and why we need to learn its concepts. Next we go through network models and how data flows inside networks. TCP/IP and OSI are the two most important protocols in computer networking world. So, the next step is an introductory to these two and a bit comparison.

TCP and UDP are two of the most important and heavy duty protocols in TCP/IP stack as they are responsible for transferring data. TCP/IP is a protocol suite and each member does it’s job so we can communicate in different ways. Application layer is the busiest layer in the protocol stack in terms of number of protocols. We have had a look at these protocols and their responsibilities in the next video. IPv4 and IPv6 are the protocols that provide logical addressing for us in the networks. The final videos in this part cover different aspects of these two important protocols

In this course we continue our journey to CCNA course by doing basic introductory to Cisco operating systems for devices as well as basic commands.

The course starts with IOS basics which includes the different Cisco NOS or Network Operating System, which platforms they normally are installed on and some introductory topics about IOS which is the NOS we learn for CCNA course.

Next we go with available CLI assistance options and how they can help us to interact easier and more efficient when we deal with IOS.

Troubleshooting is the major role of every network engineer. Cisco IOS has two effective command which can help us to do troubleshooting. In the next step we became familiar with these two commands and how we can benefit from them.

Each network can contain different types of components which is normally relies on the requirements and the available budget. I introduced some of the common ones in the next video.

There are different types of memory modules in a Cisco device. Each of them has it's own characteristics and stores specific information. I showed you how are these memory types organized and cooperate with each other. Also, how they are engaged when a Cisco device starts up.

After all, we started to get our hands a bit dirty with some basic configuration commands.

Cool Cisco IOS commands. Master CLI tips = CLI like a Boss!

Learn Cisco CLI time saving commands like "/", "+", "more", "linenum", regular expressions and many more. Save yourself hours when working with the Cisco CLI. Learn tips and tricks from CCIEs and others with many years of networking experience.

Why spend time struggling to find command output when the Cisco CLI makes it easy to search for text?

There are many commands covered in this course and I will add more based on the feedback I receive.

So many commands are available in the Cisco IOS. For example:

"^" beginning of line

"$" end of line

"." single character

"" escape special meaning

""|"" or so you you select multiple options

""linenum"" and line numbers

""_"" which is a space

""sh run all"" to show all the configuration

""default interface"" to reset interface configuration

""reload in"" to reload the router at a specific time
