rene molenaar and gns3vault…

http://gns3vault.com/Labs/BGP/

i discovered gns3vault back when i was studying for ccnp route… rene keeps an awesome site with tons of labs… i’ve done many… he has over 50 bgp labs alone… the nice thing is they can be downloaded and with minimal reconfiguration, you have an instant challenge awaiting you complete with a task list… it is a great way to stay in practice, because that’s what we do… his solutions are available through links to youtube… his ccnp books aren’t bad either; i bought all three… just like anything else in this insanity, the more the merrier…

a lab i did this morning was the bgp backdoor lab… chances are the only time you may ever be presented with this quirk is during a test..

all you need to do is register and you can have at his library of labs… and don’t forget to thank him for the gift…

joe astorino also has a nice write up on this here:
