Spammers Beware - takes action against forum spammers!

Written by Administrator. Posted in Site News

Following the continuous posting of spam related posts, we've decided to take action!

Besides the deletion of posts, accounts and permanent banning of whole Class B networks (/16) from which spammers perform their dirty work, has begun gathering full details of all spammers (including IP Address and EXACT time of forum posting) to use against the people in charge of these activities.

All information gathered is forwarded to every ISP involved, and legal action is taken.

We will not tolerate people trying to turn our site forums into a junk yard.

Closing, we also would like to thank our community for working with us to ensure the site is kept clean from unwanted content.

Cisco Lab Announcement

Written by Administrator. Posted in Site News

At the beggining of this year we launched our popular "Free Cisco Lab" which consisted of one lab. During this time we discovered various problems, the most serious being the labs reset procedures due to passwords not being set correctly.

The lab has been extremely successful with over 3100 reservations for the past 8 months. That translates to an overall 86.1% usage of the lab's capacity (1 Cisco Lab) since it's launch date.

We are now ready take the next step, which means that the lab will be undergoing some maintenance and testing over the next 6 weeks and will therefore be off-line.

The work will introduce new setup and password reset procedures to ensure the labs availability to all users.

Once the new system is online, we'll then be able to make the rest of our labs available and also work on new features that will dramatically enhance your learning experience.

We apologise for this downtime, but we feel it is necessary to help overcome the current limitations and problems.

Please direct any comments or concerns to the Cisco Lab Forum.

Thank you,

The Team.
