A post on techexams.net recently made me
look into parser views in more detail.
I read the section in the CCNA: Security Official Certification Guide
about them a while back (the entire one page of it), and never really
gave it much thought, but I was prompted by the post on the forum to
look into them in more detail.

Now that ICMP traffic is fragmenting across the network, it's time to
change and start using TCP traffic.
This is a follow on from MTU / Fragmentation / ACL Tests….Part
1 and I am aiming to find out what happens to fragmented packets when
matched to static extended access lists.
I'm going to use a program called
Ostinato for this.

I've just set up CCP on Windows 7, connecting it to a 7200 series router
in GNS3. It's a simple enough process, but there were a few "features"

After watching my router go around and around in circles, continually
failing to boot, I decided enough was enough. Time to break out ROMMON
I've used ROMMON before to download a TFTP image, but it's never

horror, with a message stating that BGP was not available in this image.
