Some interesting RFCs

March 13, 2013 2 comments

To stay updated what’s happening in the network industry it doesn’t hurt to
read some RFCs and IETF drafts. Here are two I recommend that you read.

A comparison of IPv6 tunneling mechanisms- draft-steffann-tunnels-00

It describes different ways of tunneling v6. Could be very useful for a
CCIE candidate as well if you want to experiment with deploying v6 and can’t
dual stack yet.

Evolution of the IP Model

This one describes how IP has evolved and some of the “networking truths” that
may not be true.

I recommend you read both of them.

EIGRP draft released

February 20, 2013 4 comments

Donnie Savage, Russ White, Don Slice, J. NG and Steven Moore all from Cisco have
published the IETF draft for EIGRP.

You can find it here.

Why would you want to read this draft? If you are a CCIE candidate it should be
obvious why you want to know EIGRP very well. And what better way to confirm your
findings then straight from the horses mouth?

Even if you just want to have a basic look at EIGRP they do a good job of describing
the acronyms used in EIGRP which should be useful for anyone.

I just skimmed through the draft and I wish this had been around when I was studying.
Hopefully this leads to people discussing features when talking about OSPF vs EIGRP
and not just openness.
