Re: Official "post pics of your network" thread

It's fascinating the way our labs have changed over the years, with what was once highly desirable kit now taking a back seat to newer stuff.

I've added a few bits, on the back of selling a few others. Please ignore the décor, my office will be the last room decorated.

The view from my main desk:

Current kit list in the main rack, top to bottom:
ASA5505 (and another arriving tomorrow)
2x 7960 phones and a couple of analogue phones
Digiport 16-port serial console server
Compaq PDU, modified to have twelve individually-switched outputs
Netgear GS724T gigabit switch, with two 1000base-SX SPFs
2621XM with WIC-2T
2620XM with NM-8A/S and 2x WIC-1T (Frame Relay Switch)
2960-24TT
2x 3750V2-24PS, with three GLC-T SFPs
3550-48, with two 1000base-SX GBICs
2811 with NME-CUE, WIC-2T, VWIC-1MFT-E1, PVDM2-16
1841 with WIC-2T (good for travel study)
2811 with NME-16ES-1G-P, WIC-2T, WIC-1ADSL, WIC-1BS/T, VWIC-1MFT-G703
2811 with WIC-2T, VWIC-4FXS/DID, VWIC-1MFT-E1, VWIC-2MFT-G703, PVDM2-16
2811 with WIC-2T, VWIC-4FXS/DID, VWIC2-4FXO, VWIC-2MFT-G703, PVDM2-16

Everything has max'd out memory etc.

At the side, awaiting a home or for spares:
1801 (will replace my internet router when I'm confident I won't get hacked)
'Reclaimed' oldish laptop
APC network-controlled PDU
Huawei Quidway S3500 L3 switch, with 1000base-T GBICs
Old 3Com switch for spare parts (already used one fan in the Netgear)

In the attic rack:
HP ML110 server, running a few VMs on ESXi including my domain server
Dell PE2800 (nearly broke my back getting that into the attic on stepladders!)
Dell PE1650
Dell PV775 (basically a PE2650 with extra SCSI)
3Com 4500G-48 with 1000base-SX fibre link to my internet router downstairs
3Com 2824-SFP-Plus (not used now I have the 4500G)
Comtrol eight-port serial console server
A bunch of 3Com PoE injectors for my APs around the house.

And more to come - I'm a kit monster!
Pirates >> Ninjas

Why are Pirates better than Ninjas? Because they Yarr!

@Foxyrick - That's an awesome setup man. I bet you could spend hours showing someone the ins and outs of it.



Me and a friend have been working together on a project we call "DarkNet". We works with Microsoft services, while I work with Cisco services. So in order to learn from one another, I used GNS3 to build him a virtual "Internet", or a backbone if you will, so that he can add VMs of servers and such and we can both experiment. I focused all of my attention on building an efficient network, with a working DNS server (8.8.8.8 being a fitting IP, right?). Everything is currently working as intended, and we even re-created a few websites by saving them to a virtual webserver and creating the domain name =D.

In the screenshot is an overview of the topology, some VMs on my end (not his) and a few console windows listing some information. This is a fairly recent start, we plan on making much more out of this.

My home lab

6x C1841 routers, 15.1(4)M5, Advanced Enterprise Services
4x C3560-24TS multilayer switches, 15.0(2)SE5, IP Services
2x C3560-8PCS multilayer switches 15.0(2)SE5, IP Services
16 port Avocent Cyclades console server (all devices' console ports are wired up for handy access :))
old Core 2 Duo thinkpad as lab 'server'

I leave it powered off unless I'm using it, flick of a (few) powerboard buttons and we're in business.

This is probably one of the best GNS3 labs that I have seen (my coworker built this lab); it has DMVPN, MPLS with Traffic Eng., fully integrated with a AD/Exchange environment and ASA. It is simulating 2 ISPs with different DCs.

Hello.....I'm working on making a redundant link through the internet in case the p2p or one of the internet connections is lost that it will be dynamical adjusted until the line is back up.
