  1. Hi Anthony.. So Are You Gonna Start Focusing on VPN First.. ? I have studied all the VPNs But I have heard that CISCO is asking FlexVPN in the Lab Exam which i didn’t study cuz its kinda hybrid VPN.. it contains all the VPNs.

    1. Yes – I am going to start with VPNs – in fact – today’s blog post is going to be the VPN portion of the CCIE Security Lab Exam checklist. I need to start going through every one of those line items.

      Thank you so much for reading my blog and for commenting!

    1. That is so awesome. I am starting over again today and I am going with the ASA then VPNs. I am finally freed up enough schedule wise to get back after it every day. I will be sure to post updates here at AJS Networking.

  2. I really like what you guys are up too. This type of clever work
    and reporting! Keep up the great works guys I’ve incorporated
    you guys to blogroll.

  3. Loved your lectures on security and data center,
    I need to make a home lab for ccie security,
    Already searching on ebay,

    Will be thankful for your further suggestions about the home lab,
    Thanks again

    1. Some can be virtualized – others things cannot – I plan on just renting. Much easier, and probably cheaper in the end.
