Does anyone know if there are any Firewall and/or VPN TAC labs on this site anywhere? I look under the "Exam Study" section where the IP Routing labs are and nothing. If not, does anyone know of any good simulator software? I have access to firewalls and VPN concentrators but I don't think practing commands on production boxes would fly well with Department of Treasury users. If no recommendations for SIM software, what minimum hardware would you recommend? Thanks.
Uh...yeah, probably wouldn't go over too well experimenting on production boxes. Take a look at an ISR router of some sort (like a 2811), a pix 515, and an IPS sensor. You can also setup a franken MARS box and franken NAC box. (franken = generic home built, non cisco supported setup)
you can find more info about franken MARS here:
