Stuff my IT Guy Says

Network Routing

  • Routers look at the destination IP Address (Level 3 OSI)
  • TTL (Time to Live) prevents a packet from endlessly being tossed around unable to find its destination.
  • Router will compare packet's destination IP Address to its router's route table.
  • BGP is a route table maintenance protocol, not a routing protocol. It does not update fast or make good decisions about best route.
  • Complexity is the enemy of reliability. How much redundancy do you need is the trick to a reliable network.

Network Secuirty

  • UTMs are great for general security and easier to prove security standards compliance.
  • Millions of connections need scalable solution that separate IPS, Firewall, IDS, and VPN appliances.


  • SNMP is a push pull system for device information.
  • NAGIOS is an open source solution for managing devices via SNMP
