Overview

Cisco routers are the standard devices used to connect companies to the Internet. They are highly reliable and robust, and support anything from small connections to huge circuits used by telephone companies. Cisco Routers for the Desperate is a brief, meaty introduction to Cisco routers that will make a competent systems administrator comfortable with the Cisco environment, teach them how to troubleshoot problems, and take them through the basic tasks of router maintenance and integration into an existing network.

When a system almost never breaks, the tech support people responsible for it do not have the opportunity to learn about it. When it does break, repairs can take a long time simply because the people responsible don't know what to do! This book is designed for the desperate support people who just need to get the darn thing working again — and fast.

This compact book is designed to be read once, and then left on top of the router until something breaks. It's for people who don't really want to know a huge amount about routers but who do want to provide reliable network services.

"Cisco Routers for the Desperate" is a brief, meaty introduction to Cisco routers that will make competent systems administrators comfortable with the Cisco environment, teach them how to troubleshoot problems, and take them through the basic tasks of router maintenance and integration into an existing network.

    A reviewer

    I'm using a Linksys router and received an new, never used CISCO 1711 from our parent company. I have all my configuration information (address of ISP router, my internal addresses, the protocols and ports I want open, etc.), and just wanted an easy guide telling me how to assign the addresses and opening up ports. This book starts out with really basic info. on how to use the command line. I felt real comfortable with that because it is almost identical to the command line used by Lantronix terminal servers. The book then jumps into higher level areas, and doesn't cover a company that wants to setup a basic, vanilla router to connect to an ISP T1 line. I'm looking for some basic commands on assigning an address to the connection to the ISP router on the T1, opening up a few incoming ports for remote access, etc. Some basic lists of command lines to perform a basic setup would have been helpful. This book wasn't helpful at all to me. If anyone has any ideas that will help me, please email me.
