Thunder Hawk Down–OSPF Authentication /w Area wide and Virtual Links

The sickening screech of scraping metal roared up the embankment on the horizon. Blood curdling screams of terror. brought home the stark reality of the situation. Thunder Hawk Icebane succumbed to Ork Rokkit Fire. “Brother Commander Darius Longfang, deploy the links and secure the channels. We need to re-establish contact with the Icebane.” a voice crackled down the vox caster. As the Wolves pushed their advance, the Orks proved to be a endless green tide of destruction. It was only a matter of time before Icebane was overwhelmed and the survivors of the crash surrounded and killed. Communication must be made to inform them that help was on its way.


  • – Configure RID’s/Interface IP’s and Loopbacks.
  • – Establish an OSPF link from Space Wolves HQ Area 0 to Main Gate Comms Tower Area 252.
  • – Secure the link with the strongest authentication possible.
  • – Establish a Virtual link for Area 164 back to Area 0.
  • – Verify and inform the Icebane to hold on.
    • – Good Luck Brother Captain.
  • Thunderhawk Down

I will post the answers shortly.

Petition for Educational IOS emulator –

Simple. Sign it.


We the undersigned ask Cisco to consider our petition for an open and usable IOS Emulator for learning, study and training.

We are the people who are learning about Data networking and Cisco IOS software. As students and practitioners, we need to learn theory and knowledge and then to take that knowledge and practice on Cisco IOS software.

We want to be able to practice that knowledge, and demonstrate our competence. We know that you are considering the value. This petition is to show our need for this solution. Wendel Odom discusses the possibility Cisco Considers IOS for Certifcation Self Study and we are calling for Cisco to make an option available.

This experience and knowledge we gain gives us the capability to make the most of Cisco equipment for our employers, your customers. We help drive the best return on investment, and keep the network performing in the way that your customers expect.

We can test configurations prior to making and be better prepared. We can develop more complex configurations than would otherwise be possible, and not blame the equipment afterwards.

We resolve problems more quickly, we make better designs and we have greater confidence in our work. We raise less support cases (and reduce your costs) by being to perform our own testing and validation.

Whether we are resellers, consultants, students or just interested in learning, we all need an practical method to access IOS and practice.

Therefore, we are asking Cisco Systems to make a version of IOS available for educational and testing purposes.
