    I know this has been asked before. I am basically asking some of you
    to share your opinions and experiences with me. Currently I have 2
    desktops and a laptop that I have been using. I normally install 2000
    server on one of the desktops and use this as my PDC. I then install
    2000 pro on the other desktop and use this PC as a basic client when
    doing labs that require server/client configuration. I recently
    completed my MCSA in 2000. I am now studying for 70-216. Up to this
    point when I have sat for my exams I have been fairly
    comfortable/confident. But I have always been a bit lacking in RRAS,
    VPN, IIS. How have you all been able to simulate these on a test
    network. Can I do this with virtual PC's or is it better with real
    PCs. I am interested to here how you have prepared. Thank you in

    I have experienced Disco and I don't like it, but that's just my opinion

    Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man no time
    to talk.

    This is going to be difficult for you. The majority of people find 70-216 to
    be the hardest of the MS Exams. If your pc's are running with 1 Gb of ram or
    more you'll be able to setup 2 - 3 servers (2000 will run happily on 256 Mb
    ram) in a virtual environment and play as much as you can.
    Dig deep into the technology, refer to the rfc's ( I know, they're a bit
    hard to wade through, but they are the bible as far as TCP/IP goes!). Try
    rfc1180 first, gives a really good explanation of tcp/ip, no matter how
    experienced you are, starting there is a good revision point. Then go back
    to rfc's 791 and 793. For VPN/IPSEC, rfc's 2401 -2411 explain it. Or try
    Finally, go to Google and put in the following (minus quotes) "windows 2000
    tcp/ip" and start researching doubtful points.

    I have no opinions. When I was 8, I went fishing, and when I cast off, I
    caught the hook in my ear. It was very painful.

    Oh. You weren't talking to me.

    Thanks for the info. I will definately look into those RFC's. Other
    than you (Wayne) it doesn't seem like anyone else was willing to give
    me any advice. What is this newgroup for then? I understand my
    orignal post my have come out wrong (as far as the wording goes) but I
    really don't think I deserved the responses I got. I was just looking
    for some ideas as to how others studied for their MCSE's but I guess
    this was the wrong newsgroup for that. Thanks again for all the help.

    it's called's lots of fun, try it.

    fact is if you can't find you answer at or
    from google or from using the product, you are likely asking for a brian
    dump. Cheating is bad....

    other than that every question has liekly been asked and answered already
    in this here froup. so please, enjoy the occasional frivolity found here.
