Join Lazaro Diaz for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Advanced Topics in Cisco Routing: RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF.
- Okay, before you begin the course, you need to have certain skills. So what should you know? A basic to intermediate networking skills. What do I mean by "basic to intermediate?" At least have an understanding of IP addressing, have an understanding of what a layer three device, like a router, or a layer two device, like a switch, things of that nature. So you need to have at least a basic understanding of networking. Also, you need to have a good understanding of subnetting.
We do not go over subnetting in the course. You need to really know how to subnet, even though we're not subnetting in there, so when we're putting in subnet mask or wildcard mask, you can pick it up very quickly. As well, we'll be using the Cisco Packet Tracer. So definitely, I'm going to go ahead and show you how to use the Cisco Packet Tracer. Now, the Cisco Packet Tracer is available through the Cisco Academy, so you can go ahead and go through them. Or, you can go ahead and go to gns3.net where they have their own free simulator which you can download, but keep in mind you have to bring your own iOS - they do not supply that for you - so you can load it up into the routers.
All right, so with that, I will begin the course.
- Configuring static and default routes
- Understanding dynamic routing
- Issuing verification commands
- Comparing RIPng and RIPv2
- Using RIP timers
- Configuring an EIGRP feasible successor route
- Exploring EIGRP options
- Introducing the OSPF process ID
- Exploring wildcard masking
