I am currently prepping for CCNA test and will most likely head for a CCNP and CCSP in the future.
Currently, I have the following equipment at home:
PIX 501 firewall
What I would like to do is setup some type of lab at home that I can play with. I have a cable modem connection, so I was thinking I could some how tie this all together in a mini-network so I could practice. Maybe I could even get a switch of some sort.
Things I want to learn:
-PIX/ASA Firewalls (have 6.3 on the PIX)
-routing, routing protocols, routed protocols
-IOS using CLI
Anything else that will help prep for my CCNA test.
Is their a suggested curriculum out their, a lab book of some sort that would help me put together some scenarios?
Does anyone have recommendations on how I could setup my lab while hooked up to my cable modem?
modem --> PIX --> 2610 --> 1720 --> LAN
Any recommendations are appreciated.
