Day 5 of Cisco Live 2015

What an incredible day at the conference! The first highlight – the NetVet Luncheon with John Chambers (exiting CEO) and Chuck Robbins (entering CEO). Chatted with an incredibly talented group before a killer Q and A with Jon and Chuck.




More great sessions today (I will not bore you with pics), and I will be posting great notes for you on the HOTTEST Cisco topics covered this week. IMHO. Next up was the Customer Appreciation Event. Boom! Can you say Aerosmith? My dearest friends and some great classic rock. Yes, I did have to suffer through Dude Looks Like a Lady, but still incredibly entertaining overall.

The StormWind dream team!

  1. Hello Anthony,
    I can see you are having a great time at CISCO LIVE.
    Any update on the internet issues with virl.
    Will love to hear from you.

    1. Hi John!

      They were NOT aware that a simulation cannot be run completely offline (no Internet). They are working on it. Also – they did point out that the minimum specs they provide are not for 15 devices. I believe the min would be more like 4 IOS devices, with .5 GB for each additional device. I am going to work with them to provide more detailed specs.

      Thank you for your patience!

  2. Question: If a computer is setup with a proxy server and accesses internet through proxy server. Does it not need a DNS server address configured on it? The computer is configured with static ip address. So does it need a dns server address configured to access the internet or not?

  3. You’re lucky I didn’t see you or Keith there. I would have sounded like a teenage girl at a bieber concert…

    Ok well that sounds creepy, but you know what I mean!

    Keep on rockin man! Loving your CCIE courses.

  4. ISDN is still commonplace as a bauckp mechanism and in my opinion anyone who has a CCNP needs to know about how to setup it along with Demand Dial Routing. It is a link control protocol technology that you can run Ethernet packets over and is not that hard to learn.
