Study Update

It took me a little while to get back to studying. First off IE's SP labs were full for pretty much the whole month. Unfortunately my workstation was not powerful enough to run the full SP vol 2 lab in Dynamips (13 routers).

I was finally able to get access to a powerful enough box to run it (dual-core 5140 with 4 GB ram). The routers are flying now.

what operating system are you using for dynamips?

Strangely, Windows. I did Vol I on my laptop using Ubuntu--where dynamips ran MUCH faster under linux. But it just didn't have the horsepower to run the full Vol 2 lab. So I had to borrow a server (Quad Core, 4 GB, RAID 5, etc.) where even under Windows all 14 routers fly.
