Looks like a Novell fan. I use to live 5 minutes away from the Novell headquarters in Provo, Utah. My dad says Novell has no future. So I'm thinking getting an MCSE is better a lot of companies that use to run Novell Netware are migrating to WIndows Server.
I took all 4 semesters of the CCNA course but did not take the test. Manage to pull an A in all four classes at the time but since I haven't used it, I lose it.
I still recall setting up VLANS, a lot of router configs, NAT, telnet, etc. It's a fun hands on training with soem theory to back it up.
I hate those DCE/DTE mix-ups of cable between routers. We had a bad batch of them so it was a good test for us. At least, that's what the instructor told us. Yeah right. That little problem gave our group a headache trying to figure out why our network won't telnet. SHeshhhh.. I guess we should have payed for attention to the first layer in the OSI model---Physical Layer!!!
