CCNA Recap: Hot Standby Routing Protocol (HSRP)







Redundance | Load Balancing 
for ipv4
hosts

default priority for standby routers are 100

Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol is the non cisco proprietary version of HSRP
—————  HSRP ——————


Cisco proprietary
Group # 0 - 255, int. signif only.
  • v. 2 expands to 4095 groups
  • v . 2 uses 224.0.0.102 multicast ipv4
    • ipv6 multicast is FF02::66

224.0.0.2 is multicast address for v. 1

standby preempt to force a new election


last eight bits of the Virtual Mac = standby group
priority range 0 - 255, default 100
hello timer def. 3 sec, holddown, 10 sec.
preempt is not enabled by default
‘cisco’ for default auth
u can use MD5 ( - v.2)
active router election; Highest priority wins, highest IP if a tie
  • v.2 mac range 0000.0C9F.F000 to 0000.0C9F.FFFF (Ipv4)
  • v2. mac range 0005.73A0. 0000 -  0005.73A0.0FFF for ipv6 
Fasted router to boot becomes the active one, irregardless of config. priority, if there is no preempt configured
——— hot standby ————————

Virtual Router: “I’m not in active or standby, I’m just listening and knowing infnormation.” 

In standby, you’re a candidate to be the active router


  • Spanning tree priority = lower = better
  • HSRP priority = higher = better

Consider legacy routing protocols

————— Configuration ————
First Router 
int ____
ip add [add][mask]
standby version 2 

standby [group #] ip [default gateway / virtual router IP]
must match on each router involved.

standby [group #] priority [up to 250 I believe? Higher = better]
standby [group #] preempt forcing election 
no shut

Second Router 

int ____
ip add [add][mask]
standby version 2 

standby [group #] ip [default gateway / virtual router IP] 
must match on each router involved.

no shut



EMPLOYERS: This shows that I review material I have tested and passed to refresh myself.

Wireless Diagnostics on Mac OS; Packet Sniffing on a WLAN

There's a post sitting in my drafts about Wireshark and how to sniff packets out of the air that was going to be about sniffing for authentication packets for Wi-Fi hotspots that aren't broadcasting SSID (Which you shouldn't do apparently! It's still not safe). I was watching this video to find a little more information about how to properly use Monitoring mode on my Macbook to sniff for WLAN packets on the network. So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
