Re: CCSP device list


I assume you mean CCSP, not CCSE.
* At least two routers. Both should support current IOS levels. One should
support IOS firewall feature set and both should support IPSec
* CA server (you can use Microsoft 2000/2003 server or a 3640 or higher
router)
* PIX 501 running 6.3--can't do failover, but can do everything else
* VPN 3005 concentrator running 4.x
* VPN 3002 hardware client--don't be surprised to see 20% of the CSVPN exam
focused on this
* IDS 4210 running 4.1
* Cisco VPN 4.x software client (free)
* Cisco Secure ACS (download the 90-day trial version)
* CiscoWorks VMS (download the trial version)

Two of these are expensive: if you're patient, you can find both the 3005
and 4210 for less than $1K on ebay. If you're thinking about going for your
Security CCIE, then for the routers, I would definitely get used 3640s with
128MB of RAM and 32MB of flash.

Re: CCSP device list


Thank you Sir! That is exactly what I was looking for. I did mean
CCSP, and what you posted was of a great help. I do plan of trying for
the CCIE Security. One last question.... why the 3640 instead of say a
3620 or the 26xx series? Thanks again for the awsome information !

The 3640 runs the latest 12.3T trains whereas the 3620 doesn't. Because of
flash and RAM, I typically shy away from the 2600s if you want to run
Enterprise software, which is what you'll need for the CCIE.
