  • Cisco Router Command Reference – Here is my own notes I have had as a word doc for several years. It's a basic reference for Cisco router commands.
  • Cisco Switch Command Reference – Several years ago I created my own Cisco switch and router basic config command references as word docs. However I find my info more useful on the Internet to find, and for anyone else to make use of.
    Here is the switch related reference doc I created.
  • wpcomfs – A Filesystem | Joseph Scott – Back in April announced a new REST style API. That got me thinking about writing a filesystem layer to expose that data, along similar lines to the pressfs code I’d written last year.

    It is still rough, and only supports read-only public data, but in the spirit of release early (and often) I’m sharing the code for wpcomfs at

  • WYAE – Retired Firewall Tools – These tools were used to produce documentation from firewall configuration files. Sometimes necessity is no longer given (e.g. ReadConfig), sometimes I just moved on and have no more need to use the software myself.

    The current firewall documentation system FWdoc is producing a vendor-indpendent intermediate file which then can be filtered and converted into numerous other formats. Please use FWdoc instead of these tools.

  • – CPRules.html contains the description of the main program, how to create the html output from the Check Point files and how to influence the output.

    The program uses two supporting libraries and one supporting program. The first is specifically developed for this program to read and manipulate the Check Point databases in memory, called I hope to use this library for other projects involving Check Point FW-1 databases …

    The other library,, is used for creating the html pages from a template, giving more freedom in designing the web pages. The author of this module is Sam Tregar (

    The supporting program is to convert the exported userfiles to a CheckPoint database format to be used by CPRules. CPUsers.html describes how it works.

  • How To Calculate Bandwidth Utilization Using SNMP  [IP Application Services] – Cisco Systems – This document describes how to calculate bandwidth use with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
  • Long range WiFi antenna from Illy coffee can | John Graham-Cumming – I have a stack of half finished projects that I'm trying to complete. Happily, the first one was finished late last night: a long range WiFi antenna made using an empty coffee can. Working from the ideas here I made an antenna from the following:

    1. An empty 250g Illy Espresso ground coffee can

    2. A Type N bulkhead socket and a Type N plug

    3. A piece of WiFi antenna extension cable with a reverse SMA connector on the end.

    4. A short piece of coat hanger for the active element of the antenna

  • Free CCNA Labs – Table of Contents – If you want to earn the CCNA, you’re going to need “hands on” experience. Free CCNA Labs is your source for lab exercises and scenarios to help you prepare for the CCNA exam.

    On this page, you’ll find all of my informative articles neatly organized (the lab exercises get their own page). It’s a bit sparse at the moment, but I’ll be adding several articles and labs every week. I’m occasionally recording videos to supplement the other content and provide demonstrations.
