Wanted to jot down some bullet point style notes as to the differences between the 3 FHRP's that you will see on exam day for SWITCH, and a few things you may also see on ROUTE at the bottom for Authentication and creating "Tracking objects" to increment and decrement values of the different Priority #'s … Continue reading HSRP vs VRRP vs GBLP – All Default settings, Authentication, and important quick notes for Exam day!

VRRP – Extremely similar to HSRP, review of differences, and some labbing to demo behaviors!

The exact same Topology as the HSRP section, because it is so similar there isn't really a need to create a new Topology, though SW3 does get added to the Router Group during the lab to demonstrate a difference in Router States from HSRP. VRRP similarities and differences from HSRP VRRP is very similar to … Continue reading VRRP – Extremely similar to HSRP, review of differences, and some labbing to demo behaviors!
