SSL Remote Access VPNs (Network Security)

Remote Access VPNs-An introduction to designing and configuring virtual private networks

Jazib Frahim, CCIE® No. 5459

Qiang Huang, CCIE No. 4937

Cisco® VPN solutions (formerly known as Cisco WebVPN solutions) give you a flexible and secure way to extend networking resources to virtually any remote user with access to the Internet and a web browser. Remote access based on VPN delivers secure access to network resources by establishing an encrypted tunnel across the Internet using a broadband (cable or DSL) or ISP dialup connection.

Remote Access VPNs provides you with a basic working knowledge of virtual private networks on Cisco VPN-capable devices. Design guidance is provided to assist you in implementing VPN in existing network infrastructures. This includes examining existing hardware and software to determine whether they are VPN capable, providing design recommendations, and guiding you on setting up the Cisco VPN devices. Common deployment scenarios are covered to assist you in deploying an VPN in your network.

Remote Access VPNs gives you everything you need to know to understand, design, install, configure, and troubleshoot all the components that make up an effective, secure VPN solution.

CCNP--Cisco Networking Academy Version v5.0

The Cisco CCNP® curriculum includes four modules, which align with the four exams required for CCNP certification. The CCNP curriculum builds on Cisco CCNA® courses with more complex network configurations, diagnosis, and troubleshooting. The curriculum is intended for those interested in continuing their post-CCNA preparation to become network administrators, Level 2 support engineers, Level 2 systems engineers, network technicians, or deployment engineers. Students interested in this course should have completed CCNA 1-4, or the equivalents. CCNA certification is also desirable; however, it is not a prerequisite.

The new CCNP courses can be taken in any order. However it is recommended that students take Building Multilayer Switched Networks before taking Optimizing Converged Networks. The four courses include: Building Scalable Internetworks, Implementing Secured Converged Wide-area Networks, Building Multilayer Switched Networks, and Optimizing Converged Networks.

    Ciscopress - CCNA Router and Switch eSIM

    Authorized router and switch self-study simulation software for CCNA exam preparation

    Beyond the eSIM network , CCNA Router and Switch eSIM also includes the following self-study learning tools:

    • Lab activities Enter router commands, drag and drop objects, and answer questions on topics ranging from IP address classes to basic router configuration to extended ACLs. They are designed to make sure you have a full understanding of router command syntax.

    • 200 CCNA Flashcard questions Choose from among the CCNA skill areas, set the amount of time and the number of questions, choose whether questions are ordered or random, and build your own practice CCNA exam.
    • Video lessons Expert instructors guide you through processes, such as subnetting Class C IP addresses; complex topics, such as dedicated and switched WAN technologies; and the various components of selected Cisco devices. This expert guidance delivers specific topics in an easy-to-comprehend format.
    • PhotoZooms Zoom in for close-up views of high-quality photographs of networking equipment and other products such as cables and diagnostic equipment. You can choose from various views, get detailed information on selected product parts, and zoom in for close-up views to familiarize you with these critical network environment devices.

    CCNA Router and Switch eSIM improves upon the traditional interactive multimedia learning experience for networkers who are preparing for the CCNA exam, are new to the networking field, or are practitioners who want to perfect their hands-on configuration skills. CCNA Router and Switch eSIM combines on two CD-ROMs tools that not only provide intermediate- to late-stage hands-on test preparation but also provide help in translating theoretical learning to real-world application. Network simulations, tutorial activities, practice test questions, and other electronic learning tools result in a comprehensive and interactive package for CCNA self-study.

    CCNA Router and Switch eSIM begins with the eSIM network . This provides hands-on experience with routers and switches using three network scenarios: five routers, which includes support for access control lists (ACLs); three switches, for trunking and virtual LANs (VLANs); and two switches and one router, for routing between VLANs. Each scenario enables you to specify your own IP addressing schemes, providing you with a dynamic IP addressing environment. The accompanying electronic user manual presents 14 activities for you to work through, but the totally open, freely configurable, simulative environment of the eSIM network allows hours of exploration and experimentation throughout the three network scenarios.

    CCNA Router and Switch eSIM is part of a recommended learning path from Cisco Systems that can include simulation and hands-on training from authorized Cisco Learning Partners and self-study products from Cisco Press.Titles in this series provide officially developed exam preparation materials that offer interactive learning, assessment, and networking simulation experience to help Cisco Career Certification candidates learn concepts and understand the application of networking concepts in a real-world setting.

    The interactive self-study learning products on two CD-ROMs enable you to

    • Practice with freely configurable software-based network scenarios
    • Work within three network environments
    • Develop your hands-on skills
    • Gain confidence for your CCNA exam

    Minimum System Requirements

    • System running Windows(r) 95, 98, 2000, or NT(r) 4.0, Mac(r) OS 9 or higher300 MHz with 64 MB RAM
    • Minimum 800 x 600 resolution with 256 or more colorsCD-ROM drive
    • Windows Media(tm) Player 7.0 or higher. Note: Windows 95 and NT 4.0 do not support Windows Media Player 7.0, so the videos must be played on a different OS

    CCNA(r) Router and Switch eSIM provides state-of-the-art network environment simulations

    Flashcards contain a sampler of 200 questions to help you study for the CCNA certification exam. These questions cover seven key skill areas: the OSI model, Cisco IOS(r) Software, routing, IP addressing, LAN switching, WANs, and routing protocols.

    Videos further your understanding of complex networking topics and provide an ideal format for showing facilities such as wiring closets. In these videos, Cisco Networking Academy(tm) Program instructors guide you step-by-step through complex processes like subnetting Class C IP addresses and determining administrative distances. Topics such as dedicated and switched WAN technologies, CSU/DSUs, and access control lists are also discussed. Other videos discuss various components of Cisco equipment.

    PhotoZooms feature high-quality photographs that enable you to zoom in and out and change angles to see various levels of detail. Fifteen PhotoZooms show various networking equipment including hardware devices, cables, and diagnostic tools.

    Host Configuration
    To simulate a real-world environment, CCNA Router and Switch eSIM requires you to configure the communication parameters of the host computer connected to the device. Additionally, you can ping from host to host, host to device, or device to device after you correctly configure the devices.

    Color Coded Help
    Multiple levels of the context-sensitive help provided with Cisco IOS(r) Software are included. Commands supported by CCNA Router and Switch eSIM are highlighted. Syntax errors are treated just the same way they are on real hardware. Nonsupported commands pop up a window.

    Configuration Screen
    Interact with devices via a terminal emulation program (CiscoTerminal). Command abbreviation, command completion, the cursor keys, and the More prompt all respond the same way they do with actual Cisco networking equipment.
