The comprehensive, hands-on guide for resolving IP routing problems:

As the Internet continues to grow exponentially, the need for network engineers to build, maintain, and troubleshoot the growing number of component networks has also increased significantly. IP routing is at the core of Internet technology and expedient troubleshooting of IP routing failures is key to reducing network downtime and crucial for sustaining mission-critical applications carried over the Internet. Though troubleshooting skills are in great demand, few networking professionals possess the knowledge to identify and rectify networking problems quickly and efficiently. Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols provides working solutions necessary for networking engineers who are pressured to acquire expert-level skills at a moment's notice. This site also serves as an additional study aid for Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) candidates.

Authored by Cisco Systems engineers in the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) and the Internet Support Engineering Team who troubleshoot IP routing protocols on a daily basis, Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols goes through a step-by-step process to solving real-world problems. Based on the authors' combined years of experience, this complete reference alternates between chapters that cover the key aspects of a given routing protocol and chapters that concentrate on the troubleshooting steps an engineer would take to resolve the most common routing problems related to a variety of routing protocols. This site provides extensive, practical coverage of BGP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, multicasting, and RIP as run on Cisco IOS® Software network devices.

Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols offers you a full understanding of invaluable troubleshooting techniques that help keep your network operating at peak performance. Whether you are looking to hone your support skills or to prepare for the challenging CCIE exams, this essential reference shows you how to isolate and resolve common network failures and to sustain optimal network operation.

This site is part of the Cisco CCIE Professional Development Series, which offers expert-level instruction on network design, deployment, and support methodologies to help networking professionals manage complex networks and prepare for CCIE exams.

As the Internet continues to grow exponentially, the need for network engineers to build, maintain, and troubleshoot the growing number of component networks also has increased significantly. Because network troubleshooting is a practical skill that requires on-the-job experience, it has become critical that the learning curve necessary to gain expertise in internetworking technologies be reduced to quickly fill the void of skilled network engineers needed to support the fast-growing Internet. IP routing is at the core of Internet technology, and expedient troubleshooting of IP routing failures is key to reducing network downtime. Reducing network downtime is crucial as the level of mission-critical applications carried over the Internet increases. This book gives you the detailed knowledge to troubleshoot network failures and maintain the integrity of their networks.

Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols provides a unique approach to troubleshooting IP routing protocols by focusing on step-by-step guidelines for solving a particular routing failure scenario. The culmination of years of experience with Cisco's TAC group, this book offers sound methodology and solutions for resolving routing problems related to BGP, OSPF, IGRP, EIGRP, IS-IS, RIP, and PIM by first providing an overview to routing and then concentrating on the troubleshooting steps that an engineer would take in resolving various routing protocol issues that arise in a network. This book offers you a full understanding of troubleshooting techniques and real-world examples to help you hone the skills needed to successfully complete the CCIE exam, as well as perform the duties expected of a CCIE-level candidate.
