ipv6 will play with Big Orchestra

traditionally for last couple of years engineering team at Cisco Poland is taking care of securing infrastructure for Wielkia Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy. this year i decided to launch experimental support for IPv6 - while we were not allowed to move all infrastructure to IPv6, it should be possible next year. everyone that has IPv6 access can point browser to ipv6.wosp.org.pl. everything works based on reverse-proxy provided by Apache, FreeBSD and Cisco MCS server :)...

i was stubborn - and while from the very first moment we’ve had a lot of challenges with the hotel infrastructure, i was able to run xTR routers during last PLNOG for LISP. no, it’s not about programming Cisco routers with LISP, but about new concept of Location/ID Split, that is new concept enabling you to treat traffic engineering in internet differently. in short - we still serve traffic like we always did (backward compatibility), but by assigning users and companies IPv4 and IPv6 addressing from special pools, we can treat this traffic in a different manner....

ipv6 - baby steps

everybody talks about IPv6 and still too few of us take it seriously. on polish mailing list dedicated to implementing IPv6 we get steady series of IPv6 prefix announcements, but real services available over this protocol is low. as a proof of concept for upcoming PLNOG, I just launched full network stack (Cisco 7200VXR with NPE-G1, ASA 5500-X, Catalyst 3750) and service (FreeBSD) for dual stack operation. IPv6 should be preferred, and while there’s still some things to tune down (like for example, DNS resolver in Windows XP), it should work....

1941w and its configuration...

…doesn’t have to be totally banal. it’s much more performant (300kpps, around the NPE300 performance from 7200!), so i upgraded my home 1803w to 1941w. as there are no readily available examples for complete config of the router (wired + WLAN), I decided to take the case in my hands and produce some examples. you may find them here.

ccie service provider

i came back yesterday from Brussels and today at 5:30am the verdict came in - definitely “PASS” :) so… let me share some advice and tips for those of you preparing to take CCIE SP practical exam (without breaking NDA of course). first of all - if you have that luxury of training on any software version - please try to check with the current Cisco page and align. software is quite “specific”, and you may be hit with interesting behavior that may be a little bit different from mainline versions....

conferences, conferences...

summer holidays are in full swing - starting from 26th of July i’ll be running Cisco Academy courses at PROIDEA for CCNP. everyone who’s eager to have a good time learning and discussing technologies (way outside of official curriculum) should immediately contact academy reception. independently of that, we have two large conferences coming. at Cisco Expo 2008 i will deliver sessions on network architecture that minimizes the chances of becoming a victim of a DDoS attack and becoming part of botnet....

SMB bootcamp

6 people responded to my call for a Cisco FAQ PL conversion idea up until today… but unfortunately there are no results so far. well, maybe it’s time to roll up your sleeves and do it yourself … in unrelated, but more optimistic news - a week ago i finished delivering SMB Bootcamp for Cisco partners. there was a lot of work (3 days, 12-14 hours each). you can read a bit about it in the link above on the CCIE....
