9.2 2/2, 0:05
9.3 3/3, 0:10
System Management complete, 5/8, 0:25

IP Services
10.1 2/2, 0:10

Lab complete, 88%. Of the 12 points I missed, at least 6 seem to be due to dynamips issues. The solutions guide shows I was doing mdt's and the nat exercise correctly, but they just didn't want to come up.

By far my biggest weakness is multicast. I'll take a stab at lab 7 tomorrow and will again spend a lot of time on the mulitcast portion. I think I remembered most of the key concepts today, I just ran into some small implementation issues.

Hi Ed,

Great blog! I just wanted to say good luck. I've been following the blog on the SP track as I am too going for my 2nd CCIE. I am within a few months of taking the SP lab.

On the ieoc forum, the guys recommended doing labs 3,4,7,9,10 to repeat if you have time.

Best of luck,
Ray
