A+, Network+, IT Fundamentals

In the CompTIA Network+ section Wess states that EAS is used to encapsulate a request to Authenticate to a RADIUS server.

Why does a Radius request get encapsulated in EAS and sent to the radius server if the AP shut off the port the request comes in on?

CEF explanation


You may want to review also Switch ASICs and switch methods to put a little more into context.

I'm not sure what Question ID 1287506 is. Sorry I can't be of more help on that.

Remember that switches have different switch methods:

Process Switching: all packets must go through the CPU and software forwarding

Fast Switching: first packet through the CPU but hardware forwarding for the rest of the flow (better)

Cisco Express Forwarding: All packets switched in ASIC; forwarding in hardware. (best and today default for multilayer switches and routers)

Please let us know if can provide any more help

AWS Developer: An Introduction to AWS Lambda

Lambda is just the service name in AWS. The programming language is fairly flexible, but writing Lambda functions in JavaScript or Python is probably the easiest way to get started. Lambda, as far as I know, is not exclusively the object of current or future exams (things can change). Typically, I like to use Lambda (initially) to write functions to act as a cron job or when you want to process files like resizing images. However, you can use it to build web services, data processors, and more.

Hope that helps.

AZ-104 Exam Tomorrow - Any Tips?

Hi all,

First of all great videos from the ITPro.TV Edutainers. Love the quality and the layout of the videos and make following along really easy.

However, I am at the point of mild panic with my exam only 15 hours away, I think the reality has now hit me.

Does anyone have any tips on what last minute things to top up on to make sure that you fell like you have covered all that is needed. Or just any general day to day exam tips that you use?

I fell perfectly fine when I sat my ITIL Foundation exam only 3 month ago so maybe I have rushed into this.

Also what is the format of the exam? There seems to be some conflicting reviews on how long the exam is and what the layout is, such as questions or real work examples that you have to provide. Do you just answer questions as to which command is correct or actually write out the command to get the mark?

I think panic is setting in...

Thanks in advance!

Most secure Linux on PC and on rPi3


Thank you for your reply.

I should have said more about the rPi3. I do want it to be headless and non-GUI. I also want a minimal base OS install as possible. I will ssh into it.

My goal is to run a web server (Apache or nginx), webmail server (RoundCube), etc.

Do you happen to know of a secure yet popular Linux OS in as a small footprint as possible. I'm totally ok with ubuntu or CentOS, hoping for a super-small install.

(I found TinyCore Linux for example, though not sure if that would work.)
