Cisco Devices Management

ICT and Security Management

Course Summary:

Cisco router training including Cisco router installation, configuration, and troubleshooting. You'll learn how to build a Cisco router configuration from scratch. You'll learn different ways of monitoring your router, saving and restoring configurations, and how to design and implement access-control lists. We'll explain TCP/IP addressing and subnetting concepts in a way that you can really understand.  
You'll learn how to set up static NAT and Port Address Translation.  We'll show you how to set up a DHCP server on your Cisco router.  You'll install and configure static routes and then you'll learn how to let the routers do the work with dynamic routing protocols such as RIPv1, RIPv2, OSPF, and EIGRP.  You'll even learn how to encrypt your passwords and how to use Cisco router password recovery procedures to gain entry to the router when you don't know the passwords
