GNS3 Lab for TSHOOT

If you need to pass the tshoot exam you should have done hands on with the topology. Cisco have come up with new exam scenario that you will not be able to pass this only cramming. Main advantage is they have given the exact exam topology that you can practice before facing the exam. You can download from Cisco site http://bit.ly/hQdDuB. Those who need to pass the exam first need to clearly understand and practice the topology.
This GNS3 lab is is designed to fit to the above topology. Its connected with 3660 IOS which also included here. I practice this on Ubuntu, with 2Gb RAM and 1.83GHz dualcore processor with no problem.


How to start the LAB


* Download the zip file and extract on /home/gns3/Documents/ directory path.
* Load the tshoot.net configuration file
* start the lab
* loginto ASW1,ASW2,DSW1,DSW2 and check whether the 10,20,200 vlans are in the vlan database. "show vlan-s". If not add them manually using "vlan d" followed by "vlan 10","vlan 20","vlan 200", "exit" commands.
* Then you should see Client1 getting ip from DHCP.

This is similar exam topology according to the topology they have given on the site. I could get a quick and correct approach to each ticket due to practicing this. Some configurations that you need to configure, will not support on this IOS. You can change the IOS and configurations try it.

This topology configured with following configurations.
IPV4 EIGRP, IPV4 OSPF, HSRP, IPV6 RIP, IPV6 OSPF, BGP, DHCP,Route Redistribution, ACL,
L3 Security, VLANs, GRE Tunnel
