Even in a time of recession our students are placed and happy. Read what Sarath Nair, one of our students has to say about his RHCE, CCNA Training and subsequent placement through IPSR:
"After completing my engineering graduation, I was really worried about my future. I was confused aboutwhich institute to join in order to get a promising career in the field of computer networking. I selected IPSR and now I realise that my decision was the apt one. I did RHCE and CCNA from here. I am cent percent satisfied with the quality and standard of coaching, the support and placement assistance I got.
The mock examination they conduct before RHCE global certification exam helped me a lot in getting good marks. The lab atmosphere they have is superb. The placement support wing here, especially Mr. Georgy worked hard to conduct placement drives even in this recession time. Their 100% placement assistance not only helped me but also my friends to get job in reputed companies. I wish them all the very best and recommend them for you people.

CCIE R&S Documentation Usage - Help Guide for CCIE Beginners

So today I am just trying to help the CCIE beginners to browse Documentation more effectively. In my opinion, only if you are very familiar and confident in doc usage, can you win in lab at first attempt. As you know even if you skip one task in a subsection you will lose marks for the entire subsection.

My study method was like this (I used almost all well known materials for CCIE ). CBT > COD > Cisco Press Books > Blog > Cisco DOC among all DOC is most accurate and very useful for Exam and is a Live Problem solver!! For Exam you have to notice where exactly each blueprint topic is situated in DOC. If you try to study things directly from Doc you will automatically become familiar with it. My own way to browse documentation is like this, for routing topics (I will explain way to switch topics later).
This is the starting of Documentation > Cisco IOS and NX-OS Software > Cisco IOS > Cisco IOS Software Release 12.4 Family > Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.4 T. (click)here you will get a new page. Two Main and Important link here is "Configuration Guides" & "Command References". Configuration_guide explain things in detail with appropriate examples (very good stuff). We can browse Command_References with topic wise commands, here also you can find some example configurations.

Blue print topics mainly on
IPCisco IOS IP Addressing Services Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T
Cisco IOS IP Application Services Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T
Cisco IOS IP Multicast Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T
Cisco IOS IP Routing Protocols Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T
Cisco IOS IPv6 Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T

Network Management
Cisco IOS IP SLAs Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T
Cisco IOS Network Management Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T

Cisco IOS Quality of Service Solutions Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T

Security and VPN
Cisco IOS Security Configuration Guide: Securing the Data Plane, Release 12.4T
Cisco IOS Security Configuration Guide: Securing User Services, Release 12.4T

Cisco IOS Wide-Area Networking Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T
You can open all these in various tabs and search for Blueprint topics. Later I will help you to find out blueprint topics from these pages.

RHCSS Testimonial - J Praveen

"After completing my RHCE in Madurai, I thought I did something great in my career and it would help me a lot to go further. But the fact is, it was nothing until when compared to this. Here in IPSR I came to know that how students in RHCE are framed and brought up, which I can say I missed. I really enjoyed the coaching and the lab sessions here. The hostel is also very good and cheap. I am really happy to have IPSR as my career guide to grow in my career.
- J Praveen

RHCSS Testimonial - Mahesh Deshpande

Thanks Benila, Course Director(IPSR) for arranging my hostel accommodation and that too at a very much affordable rate. I spoke to her many times (sorry Benila I disturbed you that many times!) which gave me the initial confidence when I landed in Kochi. By the way I even did not know difference between Kochi, Ernakulam and Cochin. I thought they are all very different. Despite such a confusing idea of Kochi I still could comfortably find my accommodation, my place of training etc.
Once again I thank Benila.

Outstation Student Testimonials - Sanju Raj

"These few days which we all had together in our batch RH423 were about our coming to know our strengths and weakness in Linux environment. We all had our share of inputs.
The concepts were made clear by our IPSR faculty Mr.Sharath. He was ready for our concern. We had regular breaks between topics which helped us to get rid of boredom of studying 8 hours at a stretch. We had the time for lab practices. If someone from our batch gets stuck then we all try to resolve the issue. Which helped us to know wherein we lack.
The experience of knowing things at first hand made us realize the importance of grooming up oneself to the topics beforehand. We did our preprations. These will help us to our main goal of being a security specialist.
Thanks for a wonderful experience."

I have seen all most all parts of this country this was the state which was remaining, at that time. I heard much about Kerala(God’s own country).

Brindavan - the place to be

Brindavan Executive Hostel is definitely the place to be for outstation students at IPSR. Read what Ruchir Rai, who has completed his RHCE Bootcamp at IPSR and now doing his RHCSS bootcamp at IPSR North had to say about Brindavan.
" Before dropping in @ Cochin I had a feeling that the total the hostel facility provided by IPSR is towards expensive side . But I had to change my thinking when I actually saw the Hostel.

First of all tell you, the hostel is very neatly built, rooms somewhat give a look of star hotel. It is all tiled and clean, and very well maintained.

The keeper of the Hostel showed utmost hospitality the moment I was in the Hostel.

The other day I was introduced to other hostelmates and I came to know that I am staying with core IT professionals who are working with TCS and other leading companies at Infopark , Cochin.

It is a home away from home with around 40 IT professionals as family members. You can just guess what level of knowledge and experience I am gaining informally beyond the studies at IPSR.

It is not just where you study that matters but also where you stay. Such a good environment at the hostel was not expected.

Thanks for providing me such a good stay."

Redhat is the Best

"East or West, Redhat is the Best "
The 2009 IDC MarketScape Report says that Redhat is the #1 in IT Education. Here are the
# Consistent with Red Hat's perception that training is a wedge to achieve broader adoption of its offerings, training is available for each release and is updated for every dot release.
# Uniquely, Red Hat offers broad release of most training during the beta-test phase of its product release cycle, facilitating user and professional services community input into the quality and format of its training offering.
# Because of its community-oriented product development, Red Hat is particularly collaborative in its training development and evaluation. Regularknowledge sharing occurs between Red Hat University, services on-boarding teams (early users of most training), engineering/core teams (engineering subject matter experts), and the Red Hat Training and Certification team (training delivery).
# Red Hat leverages advisory boards to help maintain the relevance of its certifications and engages with internal (as mentioned previously) and external communities (such as a Red Hat Certified Engineer [RHCE] focus groups). The process revolves around "DocZilla" — the complete compendium of current Red Hat technical and training data contained in a broadly accessible content management system.
# Its certifications are primarily role based, often crossing the functional use of one or more products.
# Red Hat Training impacts future Red Hat deployment: Red Hat reports that in the Fortune 250, enterprises with at least one RHCE on staff result in six times more business to Red Hat than those without any RHCE on staff. IDC believes this reflects the enterprise readiness value of training and certification.

Benila Mendus is doing a great job in her position!! Congratulations!
I really have a nice experience at IPSR. Without IPSR I would not have cleared my Ex333, Ex423 & Ex429 easily. I got information about IPSR from NIVIN GEORGE when I was in doing RHCA exam prep. I immediate started my process to come to India and I was excited to attend exam training at IPSR. To come to IPSR and clear RHCSS exam was my dream. So now, my dream become true after completing all RHCSS exams.
I am thankful to IPSR for the same.
Great!!! I have no words to describe how the IPSR help me to get RHCSS.
Thank you. "

Live Problem and Solution

Yesterday one of my old students now working in Bangalore called me for a help. The problem is this. He needs to backup the configuration of a voice gateway router situated in UK to the PC in Bangalore. He started TFTP server in his PC accessed the router via telnet. While issuing the “copy running-config tftp” he got the error message says router 'can’t access the tftp server.'

See the mailed result

2851BR5A_01#copy running-config tftp:Address or name of remote host []? filename [2851br5a_01-confg]?Writing 2851br5a_01-confg%Error writing tftp://

Here the problem is in his path to TFTP server there may some firewalls blocking his TFTP traffic. Most of firewalls will block TFTP traffic (port 69) but allow FTP traffic. To confirm the problem we can traceroute to the TFTP port for that issue the command from privilege mode.

2851BR5A_01#traceroute port 69

Traceroute result of TFTP

2851BR5A_01#traceroute port 69

Traceroute result of ftp

(NOTE here tftp traffic is being dropped while ftp traffic is permitted by firewalls)

If we got message form the same ip like “ 264 msec 348 msec 312 msec” there is no filtration. But in this case the problem is with firewall.

The solution

There may be many solutions to this problem. Some solutions came into my mind I told him.

call his top level administrator and tell him to allow his TFPT traffic. (its not a good solutions since TFTP is not a secure protocol unlike FTP)
Use a FTP server instead of TFTP server
Use a TFTP server in the same LAN of the voice gateway or before the firewall.
Back up the Startup configuration file from NVRAM to Flash memory of the same router.

Solution 1 &3 doesn’t need much explanation

Explanation of solution 2

Down load and install a ftp server in local LAN in Chennai. Create one user in ftp application for example username is cisco with password cisco

In router create the same ftp user using the command

ip ftp username ciscoip ftp password 0 cisco

then issue the command “copy running-config ftp”
OR “copy running-config ftp://cisco:cisco@

Explanation solution 4
If we have enough flash size we can backup configuration in flash itself. In copy command if we didn’t specify destination location the default location is in flash.
We can use command “copy run configbackup” for this solution.
He used the second solution and now he using ftp instead of TFTP. Remember even if TFTP is faster than FTP its not secure.
