I'm pretty comfortable with IPv6 so I'm going to skip it

Lab complete, 84/100. Barely passed, but I skipped IPv6 which would have been a relatively easy 7 points

Here's what I missed
Task 4.2--neighbor x.x.x.x remote-private-as
Task 5.2--I needed to use ip pim rp-announce-filter rp-list x group-list y on R1
Task 7.3--I should have trusted my instincts, it used the shape max-buffers command
Task 8.1--I should have used the established keyword on the telnet access list.
Task 8.2--I didn't even think of using a VACL
Task 10.1--Transport preferred non fixes the annoying dns lookup issues
Task10.2--I stink at privilege levels. Learned a little more though.
