Ok it has been a while. The exam should have taken place yesterday, but it didn't. They couldn't find me in the system. The exam institute is supposed to be a Pro (VUE certified) & MCSP. The system works, but M$ does not. So the exam is rescheduled for the 19th of September. :(

Geez.....A full weekend without a PC, bummer :(.

We went on a company outing. So I brought my Laptop along, but had no time to touch it.

This week I am planning to start building my Firewall/Router & server. (yep on one machine. No money left :( and I don't like it)

After a week of intensive training in Groningen, I believe I am prepared for the LPI 101 exam. :)

Fun @ home:
Some more fun starts this evening, I bought 2 10/100 ethernet cards and a 10/100 Switch and connected all of the HW and the UTP cables. I am ready to install Linux as a firewall, router, DHCP-Server and webserver. (I need more Diskspace) It will be a hard, (it's new for me) but I'll manage and I need the experience.And most of all, it wiil be fun. :)

Currentley I am preparing myself for my LPI 101 exam. I am doing that with the aid of www.examcram.com My score today was 74%. To pass I need 70% so I still need more training.

So.....I am still learning.

My colleauge Bas gave an lecture about Wireless LAN. The 802.11 standard to be exact.

I learned a lot. :) Thanks Bas.

As I have said before, I have ADSL now, so I can continue building a network at home. I have 2 desktops and 1 Laptop. The plan is as follows: 1 Desktop shall be a firewall. This is a Cyrix 166+ CPU, an 1,6 GB HDD and 52 MB of RAM. It will be reinstalled with RH 7.0

When I am finished with that, It will be connected to the MoDem and a hub. On the hub I then will connect my laptop an the other desktop (win 98).

Currently, I am looking for 3 extra ethernetcards. Maybe I will even get a wireless network in due time.

Ok I have got my wires sorted out, so the phone works as well again...

IT is cheaper this way and I am Happy.....Currentley I try to study for my LPI 101 exam

Woehoe.......My adsl MoDem is working......So I can internet at low costs :)

I had a few days of stuggle but I did it on my very own :)

I got my ADSL modem Yesterday....Nice to play with and to find out that you need ppp-Support as modules in stead of compiling into the kernel, so I made a new one this morning and ready for testing. But since I am very busy (or at least should be) I cannot test the kernel.....
