I got an oppertunity to upgrade my Cisco 2960G switch to something supporting SSH keys (12.2(58)SE2). I wanted to know how the process compares with my Juniper EX switches.

Interview Questions

Interview Questions This is a collection of interview questions that I pick and choose from (nobody has to answer all them) when I talk with both technical and non-technical people. I’ve been collecting these for several years and I try to keep them updated along the way. Some have historical interest. Some may need to be updated, or you may find value in their historical nature. Its true that the industry makes fun of people who use AIX, or emacs.

pfSense is a great firewall/router for a nerdy home, or business. It offers all the standard features (stateful firewall, NAT, routing, IPv6, VPN, and high availability) for free.
