Fortunately, there's help. Cisco IOS in a Nutshell, Second Edition, consolidates the most important commands and features of IOS into a single, well-organized volume that you'll find refreshingly user-friendly. The best way to learn IOS is to have an experienced network admin show you the ropes; this book provides just that kind of help and support as you learn what you need to know about IOS to get the job done.
The new edition of Cisco IOS in a Nutshell has been thoroughly revised and expanded. Switches and virtual LANs (VLANs) form an important part of networks today, and a new chapter is dedicated to this topic. Quality of Service (QoS) is a critical concern, given the array of traffic that runs over today's IP networks. A new chapter on QoS takes a practical approach to the wide variety of techniques and traffic analysis features that IOS offers, from the simplicity of AutoQoS to features such as Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR) and Modular QoS CLI (MQC). Other new topics include AutoSecure, multicast routing, Voice over IP, DSL, cable modems, MPLS, frame relay traffic shaping, and more.
This handy, two-part reference covers IOS configuration for the TCP/IP protocol family. The first section includes chapters on the user interface, configuring lines and interfaces, access lists, routing protocols, and dial-on-demand routing and security. An example-filled tutorial shows you how to accomplish common tasks.
The second part is a classic O'Reilly quick reference to all the commands for working with TCP/IP and the lower-level protocols on which TCP/IP relies. Brief descriptions and lists of options help you zero in on the commands you need for the task at hand. You'll find lots of examples of the most common router configurations. Cisco IOS in a Nutshell is a timely guide that any network administrator will come to rely on.

Are you a network administrator who is using a Cisco router in an IP environment? If you are, this book is for you. Author James Boney, has written an outstanding 2nd edition of a book that is for everybody who has to deal with Cisco's routers. Boney, begins by covering the Cisco user interface. Then, he discusses several methods for uploading a new IOS image. The author continues by covering most of the configuration items that make routers more manageable and easier to tame. In addition, he shows you how to use line commands. The author also shows you how to use interface commands. Then, the author covers some networking technologies that you are likely to encounter, such as frame relay, ATM, cable, DSL, and VoIP. Next, he shows you how to use access lists. Next, the author discusses a number of topics that are common to all of the protocols. Then, he discusses interior routing protocols, including Routing Information Protocol (RIP) the Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), and the newer Enhanced IGRP (EIGRP) Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), and Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS). The author continues by discussing the Border Gateway Protocol. In addition, he covers Cisco's new advanced tools for QoS management as well: Modular QoS CLI (MQC), Class-Based Weighted Fair Queing (CBWFQ), and Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR). In addition, he covers Cisco's IOS support for dial-on-demand categories: Legacy DDR and Dialer profiles. The author also covers a number of IP configuration topics that won't find their way into simple configurations. Then, the author describes Cisco switches, with an emphasis on IOS-enabled switches. Next, the author describes the first simple steps you can take toward router security. Finally, he discusses techniques for troubleshooting and monitoring your router. This excellent book is primarily a quick reference to the commands that are most frequently needed to configure Cisco routers for standard IP routing tasks. Above all, this book represents practical experience with IP routing on Cisco routers and covers commands that you're likely to need.

and not much more. But then again, they did not promise much else... For more in depth coverage of routing protocols check out 'Cisco IOS for IP Routing' by Andrew Colton. These two together should take you a long way to a good understanding of Cisco routing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
