I am completely off work for 2 whole weeks starting today! I’ve been struggling to finish up the IPexpert Volume 1 technology specific labs all week, so that by the time my 2 week break came up, I could start using it to dig into the full scale 8 hour Volume 2 labs.

I did pretty well on my struggle to finish up volume 1, although admittedly I did skip a lab on GRE tunnels, and I sort of rushed through IPv6.

My plan for the next few weeks is to get my ass out of bed by 9:00 AM, get my coffee, and get on my rack! I’ll be starting with Volume 2 lab 1. My lovely wife is not as fortunate as me, and has to go to work, which sucks for her, but that means I will have an entire quiet empty house and NO EXCUSES! I plan on really hitting it hard, and taking full advantage of this opportunity. My goal is to put in between 8 and 16 hours a day on my rack.

P.S. Anybody out there know if the 3550 supports IPv6 ??? I have been unsuccessful trying to find an IOS that will do it for this platform, yet my buddy tells me he has a friend that is doing IPv6 on a 3550. According to internetworkexpert’s difference between 3550/3560 that I stumbled across that is one of the differences

    Good luck on your studies Joe. According to the Cisco feature navigator, the 3550s are not able to do IPv6. I guess I haven’t tried on mine yet.

    Although I’m sure they have no problem pushing IPv6 packets that are encapsulated in IPv4 =)

    I don’t know if this might be of any help to you but hopefully it will 🙂

    When I was working with 3550s I came across a cisco doc that stated IPv6 is available. However I was not able to find any IOS that would support it. Now I am running 3560s. However I just read an email on GS that 12.2 (44)… supports IPv6.

    I am actually running 12.2(46)SE ipservices which is the latest out there, and there are no ipv6 commands.

    There was a recent GroupStudy posting about the 3550s running IPv6. The code version looks (slightly) older than the version you are running. Weird.

    SW4(config)#ipv6 ?
    access-list Configure access lists
    general-prefix Configure a general IPv6 prefix
    hop-limit Configure hop count limit
    host Configure static hostnames
    icmp Configure ICMP parameters
    local Specify local options
    neighbor Neighbor
    route Configure static routes
    router Enable an IPV6 routing process
    source-route Process packets with source routing header options
    unicast-routing Enable unicast routing

    SW4(config)#do sh ver | in .bin
    System image file is “flash:/c3550-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE3.bin”

    Hey, thanks cciepursuit! How strange…it IS in 12.2.44SE3 but not in 12.2.46SE …I went ahead and loaded 12.2.44SE3 and sure enough the commands are there. Thanks for your help.

    I don’t know if it’s the same but on Cisco 3560s you have to enter this command: “sdm prefer dual-ipv4-and-ipv6 default” and then reboot.

    If you don’t, there wont be any IPv6 commands in configuration mode.

    Hey Olof, yeah that is only for the 3560.
