I heard they had to turn Scott away from the door because he was wearing a juniper shirt. Is this true Scott?

1. Do what you are asked, and if something else is required to make that
work, do it. If not, leave it alone.
2. There should be technical similarities but not duplication. Don't
concentrate on which lab is "most like" the real one because even if there
is one, the CCIE folks will change that anyway! Always aim higher.
3. Depends on whether it bothers anything. If you end up with any magical
connectivity between your spokes I'd say it's a problem. But otherwise you
may not care. Watch your lab!
4. Whenever a packet moves through a network you have an obvious entry
point and exit point. Everything in between is a transit device.
5. When you see things not working correctly. :) In other words, answer
by asking yourself "What does 'next-hop-self' accomplish for me?". Knowing
that will help answer the question there.

Subject: Real Lab Exam Questions

Hi Everyone,
i have couple of questions for the real lab exam :

1. if in the start of the lab all the trunks are up and the bridging and
switching tasks tell me to configure some of trunks - what to do with the
rest of the trunks ??
2. how similar is the real ccie lab exam to internetworkexpert Version 4
labs or ipexpert version 9 labs ?
3. if in the tasks frame relay inverse arp is not asked - should i need to
configure it ??
4. what does it mean speaking devices , transit devices which routers to
refer ??
5. there is no consistent configuration in my training labs
(Internetworkexpert v4) of bgp next-hop-self - when exactly do i need to
configure it ??

Best ,

Almog Ohayon.
