I would like have some info on how ccie lab is conducted: is the candidate given a pc or notebook to start the configuration? Do the candidate have physical access to the equipments? Are the equipments configured through console or telnet? What is the software used to access the equipments? (hyper terminal? windows telnet? SecureCRT? Putty?) Thanks in advance
The environment includes a pre-configured access server that allows you to have one window open on your desktop for each device in your topology.
That is the way I prefer to work anyway: keep a window open on everything with ip debug routing so I can instantly detect any topology chages.
Secure CRT (old version)
