This will over time show what equipment I have and have used to help me along my way in gaining my digits.
- 1 x Cisco 3550 – 48 port L3 switch
- 2 x Cisco 2950 – 24 port L2 switch
- Still wanted (1 x 3550 and 2 x 3560)
I have recently bought and built a server for the specific use of using it as a lab replacement (except for L2, which will still be served by the above switches).
The (basic) specs of the machine are below:
- Intel Core i5 quad core CPU (i5-760)
- 8GB RAM
- 500GB HDD (to be expanded at a later date)
- 3 Quad NIC’s (Sun)
I have used Quad NIC’s in the machine to give me a total of 12 ports that will be used as breakout ports between my Dynamips routers and my real switches.
