Archiving IOS configurations

Ethan Banks has a great article over at the PacketPushers website detailing the simple setup required to archive switch configurations to an FTP Server. I’ve looked for this type of solution before, but haven’t ever seen it explained so well.

There are valid security concerns that come with clear text passwords and usernames in the config, but in my opinion, if an outsider is already looking at my config, the ftp account is the least of my problems.

Be sure to give it a read, and leave Ethan a comment.

And now for something completely different…an iPad background for Network Engineers

ASA iPad Background

ASA iPad Background

I’ve never really found a lock screen for my iPad. I’ve been looking for something that has some geek humor, with a little bit of, “yes, I am a network engineer” mixed in. Finally, I decided to create something. I’m tossing it out for anyone to use.

What would you like to see as an iPad background? What IOS commands scream “Look at me every time you turn on your iPad”?
