I have made it to San Jose. Hard to believe how time goes by so fast and that my exam is tomorrow. For the past nine months since I completed the written exam, I have been getting ready for this day. As I mentioned in my previous posts, all of last week was spent in the lab and I logged approx 115hrs there since last Saturday. Double rack sessions at Proctor Labs each day.

Well, I am under the 30 day mark. 27 days until my first attempt at the CCIE voice lab. I started this journey back in February and can’t believe how fast time flies. My studies have gone very well over the past few months and I feel I have a good understanding of most of the technologies.

My first Proctor Labs voice rack session went well today for the most part. You are given the option of connecting via Cisco VPN Client or EzVPN. I decided to try and use the EzVPN solution so that I could use the phones from my lab. After a little customizing of the EzVPN config that is provided, I was able to get connected.
