I have been tasked to "Put Jane and John on our conference room screen and put all of us on their laptop screens" to turn a regular teleconference meeting into a videoconference meeting. The problem is not Jane or John: They are in quiet remote offices with laptops and Skype accounts (or any other videoconferencing accounts you may suggest). The problem is us: Thirty colleagues, backs pressed against the walls, in a long, narrow, noisy conference room built for twenty, with no room to place cameras that will capture more than a few of us.

I was looking at some of the Udemy courses and several popped out that are meant to prepare you to pass certain certification requirements. For example, there is a CCNA Security course for Cisco systems which can prepare one to receive accreditation. What are some courses and opportunities on Udemy and similar websites for individuals looking to break into new professions where the barrier to entry is largely passing basic certifications and exams?

Where can I purchase Cisco fortified wine in northern Virginia or the metro DC area. Ideally I wouldn't have to drive all the way in to DC, but could be convinced if you're sure its sold a shop there. For what it's worth - acquiring the wine is for lulz purposes, not for "oh I really want to drink Cisco."

Using two Cisco RVS4000 routers to create a VPN between two offices. A tunnel is supposedly set up successfully, because the router says it's "up" and I can access the admin interfaces of both routers from both locations by using their internal IPs (192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1). Trouble is, I can't reach any of the workstations or peripherals behind the routers. [more inside]

Hi, I have two Cisco 2610 routers, each with WIC-1DSU-T1 cards. We have a Point-to-Point between two locations and I am using these to route the traffic between. The lines belong to Verizon and the AdTran cards are locked in a Verizon box. I can look in and see the status lights through the top. Each location has a RJ48X loopback jack. When I plug in the Cisco at Location 1 it seems to hook up fine, and the carrier detect light pops up. (Which is strange to me because our PTP is unmonitored and I thought the CD would only come on when equipment is plugged into both ends.) Then when I go and plug in the Cisco at Location 2, I get no lights, no nothing. I check the lights in the Verizon box and an alarm is triggered with a red LED. I disconnect the Cisco and it clears the alarm. How can I figure out what the problem is? I had the company that provides the PTP come and check the circuit originally and they said they found problems but that the problems had gone away now. Is it possible that the WIC-1DSU-T1 card in this router is faulty? Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Our small non-profit is trying to deploy some Cisco wireless bridges between buildings. Will a non-root bridge's radio show up as disabled if it cannot associate with the root-bridge? Scenario: Root Bridge on main building (Cisco 1240AG) - using 802.11A 2 satelite buildings have Cisco 1240AG Bridges in non-root mode using 802.11A Radio status on root-bridge is up Radio status on two non-root bridges is down Using 802.11A patch antennas and RP-TNC LMR-400 cabling to antennas from AP. No run is over 50'. All antennas are line-of-sight and longest antenna to antenna run is 500'.
