Q

Access my lab through the Internet

I just acquired some routers for my own CCNA/CCNP lab at home. I currently have DSL. Can I access my lab through the Internet?
You can access your lab through the Internet if you use the pcAnywhere application. Install PC Anywhere on your home PC and the remote PC that you plan to access your network from. Make sure that you console connect one of your routers to the serial port of your home PC. You would then configure telnet access to all of your routers. Remember to use the "line VTY 0 5" command to enable telnet access to each router and make sure to set a vty password on each router. You can then telnet to any router in your home network once you connect to the router that your home PC is consoled in at.
