I nailed my CCNA last November, and want to get my CCNP this November. I have started purchasing and/or quoting out equipment, but I wanted a quick review before I buy everything.
Currently I have:
2x2500 Routers (for my CCNA .. probably not too useful anymore except as hubs)
1x2511 Access Server (need to find a config guide for this)
1x3750G Switch (went for the Gig version so that is is useful to me when not training.
2x2950 Switches w/ Advanced IP Services IOS.
1x1721 Router in use as my DSL Modem
1x Pix 506e in use as my firewall
1x Pix 501 for playing around on.
4 3640 routers with serial and Ethernet cards
Maybe another 1841 router.
Goals: CCNP in the near future, Firewall specialist eventually and long range I may consider CCIE Switching & Routing.
Questions: any good lab guides/scenario resources others have used? I also need a sample config for the Access-Server setup, and any handy programs for remotely accessing everything. I am planning on training quite a bit away from home, so the idea is to VPN in and turn on equipment via an APC master switch [already purchased].
