Basic Cisco ISDN Configuration

Written by Administrator. Posted in Site News

Following our successful article describing the ISDN WAN Protocol (Networking/WAN Technologies), we've prepared a new article that will help put a bit of practice on the theory covered. The new article covering basic ISDN configuration for Cisco routers, explains how the ISDN protocol is configured on Cisco routers, along with the most common options and configurations.

Furthermore, the article has been designed to be 100% compatible with our upcoming 2nd Cisco lab, while existing users can use our 1st lab to explore the functions and options covered.

For more information, please see our 'Cisco Routers' section.

Cisco Lab Update

Written by Administrator. Posted in Site News

Firewall.cx's Cisco Lab is a world-class project that aims to provide free educational services to the world's IT professionals, allowing them to work with expensive equipment without restrictions.

While every effort was made to create a service that would work without human intervention, there were problems discovered which withheld us from making the rest of our labs publicly available.

The most common problem is the 'password reset' issue, which unfortunately relied on how well the Cisco lab users were able to follow our guidelines.

We now would like to inform our community that we have already begun working on a new daemon that will not only resolve this issue, but introduce new 'cool' features such as equipment power-cycle, on the spot configuration reset, and many more.

These new features will enhance our Cisco Labs, ensuring a new level of experience and availability for every user.

This also means that we will be forced to take off line Cisco Lab No.1, in order to proceed with our testing and troubleshooting phase of the new daemon.

The dates which the Cisco Labs will be unavailable will be announced within the next couple of weeks.

Please direct all questions to our Cisco Lab forum.
