Course Description

Hand-on labs for CCNA level. More than 340 minutes of CCNA level configuration practices on rela IOS.

After finishing these practices you should be comfortable with basic Cisco IOS configurations and run major routing protocols in your network.

I used a network simulator (GNS3) for my labs but you may use these guidlines on real hardware with no change.

What are the requirements?

  • GNS3 software

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Over 69 lectures and 5.5 hours of content!
  • Basic configurations of routers and routing protocols

What is the target audience?

  • Entry level students to Cisco routing and switching

Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction
Welcome to CCNA Labs

Upcoming

There is an easy way to remember 7 layers of OSI model and that's a simple phrase:

Any Person Seems To Need Data Processing!

Of course there is another phrase that can be used to remember the layers from bottom to the top but I have found this easier to learn.

Upcoming

If you are comfortable with different types of conversion, you will be a long way ahead of your colleagues! Converting Binary to Decimal is necessary when summarization and some other calculations.

Upcoming

Converting decimal to binary is necessary when you want to summarize a list of network IDs and use a summary address. Here I explain an easy technique.

Upcoming

Hex to binary conversion is necessary when you are working with IPv6 addresses and need to calculate a summary or when you are asked about EUI-64 argument. Here I explain a simple technique.

Upcoming

You may not need to convert Hex to decimal in your normal networking life but for some numbers it is sure a nice skill to know how to do it. Here I explain a simple technique.

Upcoming

In this section I show you a nice way to distinguish between different IPv4 address classes and their range.

Upcoming

How can you tell if two devices in a network can talk to each other? If their subnet masks are the same, then they are in the same subnet. In this section I give you a brief introduction to subnet mask.

Cisco IOS offers limited help and therefor you need to know how to use that little bit of help. Here I explain some tips about using IOS features.

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)

Upcoming

Cisco Discovery Protocol sends and receives messages on each interface so that devices can learn their neighbors and capabilities. Here I examine this protocol.

Upcoming

A routed interface needs at least an IP or IPv6 address to become functional. Here you will learn how to configure an IP address on interfaces.

Section 5: IOS Security
Upcoming

To secure a router from being accessed via console or VTY port you need to make sure there is an authentication method in place. Here you will learn how.

Upcoming

Adding passwords to limit access to configuration is a security measure but if someone can see running config, he or she can see passwords in clear text unless you encrypt them using "service password-encryption" command or create passwords using secret argument.

Section 6: VLANs
Upcoming

VLANs help us logically divide our LAN into multiple segments. Here you will learn 3 ways to create VLANs and assign interfaces to them.

Upcoming

In this section I start creating a very simple topology that will cover our needs using GNS3.

Instructor Biography

Mohammad Imani , Trainer for 10 years

I got my first certificate (MCP for Windows Server 2000) in Jan 2002. Instead of starting a career in networking I was asked to create a video tutorial for MCSE 2003 lessons. That was a huge success! Even after 8 years, that course is still selling well.

I continued this career and now I am quite well-known in my country for a wide range of tutorials including CCNA, CCNP (new track) and CCIE labs lessons plus MCITP 2008, MCSE 2012 and some engineering software such as Catia, Solidworks, etc.

I would like to continue this success in global level so I started creating tutorials in English. Although I can easily transfer the concepts, English is not my native language so I am always trying to learn more about it.

I have some hobbies too! Playing computer games with my little daughter, Studying Medicine and bodybuilding are on top of my list.

    • Fikry M

    Really good lecture by using the GNS3 to relate it with the real world situation

    • David Bigerstaff

    First 5 seconds put me off.

    I stopped watching as soon as these words left his mouth "In the name of god the most compassionate, the most merciful"

    • Christian Sanabria

    Great course

    very complete and great explanations

    • Seyed Hossein Ali Emami
