Study Tip: Gathering Configurations

I am fond of checking Cisco website and other blogs. Whenever I come across a configuration I am interested whether its something familiar or unfamiliar, I copy that config, save it on a notepad. Though I might not understand some of the configuration files I gather, I find time researching what those config lines mean, try it in Dynamips and read more about it.

If you work doing network configuration changes, doing configs line by line will really get in your nerves. One best practice is to prepare yourself a template config per technology or per setup and save this in a notepad. Network configs in an enterprise environment usually have standard format so this will really save time and you can use time reviewing the config you prepared using the template. In the future the configs you have gathered will surely come in handy.
