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

Download the GNS3 confi files with IOS here.

  7. You can practice troubleshooting steps. Eg: Change the authentication key and see where the trace drops. try show ip route command ... etc.
    Or change the AS number and see whats happening each router. That is how you should practice troubleshooting.

  8. Yasith, what do you say about Cisco Official Exam Guide? Is it worth studying? Or studying with the proposed lab here is enough?
    Thanks

  11. This looks great! After my disappointment, with the Ciscopress Tshoot lab manual not actually giving you the configs you need to do the labs it just sold you, was overcome, this is just what I need!!

    However, I'm running it on a PC and when I try to open the lab I get an error

    "nothing connected to port 4, it does not exist"

    Can you help pls? I'm really keen to get knees deep in this exam, I already have my BSCI and BCMSN, and just need this baby to complete the set!

  15. James, you just have to edit the TSHOOT.net file and replace all the "/home/gns3/Documents/TSHOOT-GNS3-Exam/" with your own path ;)

    Good luck to you all!

  16. Thank you for the lab, its been helpful. May I ask a question on its configuration?

    How is the external network 209.65.200.224 advertised into the sample customer network? How would R2,R3, or R4 for example be able to ping this outside address? I didn't see anywhere how that route is distributed to the internal OSPF network. Maybe I'm missing something.

    Thanks for your help.
