While poking around the new GNS3.net forum, I found two very interesting howto posts. Jeremy Grossman (gns3 author) describes the processes needed to bridge a wireless NIC to GNS3 using both Linux and Windows.

With Callmanager, partitions and calling search spaces are utilized for implementing calling restrictions and creating closed dial groups. But what happens when in SRST? During SRST, any call restrictions defined within Callmanager will not apply and all devices will have unrestricted dialing. COR resolves this issue. COR (Class of Restriction) is a Cisco IOS voice gateway feature that enables calling privileges to be applied and is most commonly used with Callmanager Express and SRST.

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.

Although this is the first tutorial following the Virtual Voice Lab Series introduction, the first tutorials were recorded and posted several months ago.

Install Call Manager 4.x with VMWare

How to install Call Manager 6.x in VMWare

These videos walked through the installation of Call Manager, but nothing more. Before I release a post on how to register phones to the virtual lab, we need to enable the services on the CUCM system and remove dependency on dns.

For the past several days, I have immersed myself in everything Gatekeeper. As I had stated early on, IPIPGW and Gatekeepers have been a weak area for me due to the fact that I have never come across a need to deploy one for a customer. When studying for my CCVP and my CCIE voice written exam, I had studied the theory and “lab’d” up some basic configurations, but Gatekeepers have always been an intimidating beast to me, until now!

Most of us have used voice translations rules for digit manipulation to modify both ANI and DNIS. Did you know that you can also block calls based on ANI?
