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.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
