IE Mock Lab #4

I didn't do much studying at all during the week. Grad school is picking up now so there probably won't be much time. This is why I moved the real lab for the end of January, originally. I was hoping to get it completed before school started.

Today I'm taking IE Mock lab #4. It has a difficulty of 9, which means it's supposed to be harder than the actualy lab. To make things worse, they put a timer on now and will automatically kick me off the equipment 8:30 after I start.

I'm going to try one different approach this time. I'm going to open 10 terminal windows instead of just the 1. I was afraid before that I would get confused, but I'm sure there'd be a big benefit to catching debug ip routing messages and others if I go this way. I hope by practicing a month with this I'll get the issues straight.
