Hi all,

Glad to join your community! Came across your site after looking for some info on a redirect issue I was having and found my solution very quickly as well as found plenty of other great info so far, so I figured I oughta join so maybe I can help the next guy (or gal) out in return.

Quick IT bio, I'm a network engineer primarily in the Cisco world, with plenty of Microsoft client\server background. Back in my early professional IT career, I did quite a bit of Desktop Support for both enterprise and home users which of coarse included a lot of virus/spyware/malware removal, though I must say this arena sure has changed quite a bit in the last several years so I applaud the helpers here for the new knowledge gained/offered and tools created to help the everyday user fight the never-ending battle against the evil internet :thumbsup:

If I can offer any assistance to anyone here, I'd be glad to help and thanks for what looks to be a great resource and community.

See ya around...

Thanks all for the welcomes, glad to be here......next round on me ;)

@fallenarchangel, all I can say is just dive in, its tons of fun! Especially once you start getting into all the other technologies Cisco covers such as Security, Voice (which really is a blast), and more recently even blade servers which is one of my current projects. Of coarse don't get me wrong, routing and switching is still my first love and is also a ton of fun with all you can do, though voice is very cool. First things first, start looking into and studying the CCNA cert, though do it for real and really learn it without those braindump sites like pass4sure. If possible get yourself some hands-on, though if not yet possible, checkout GNS3 which will let you run real IOS images on your PC and even use your PC as a real Cisco router, it just takes a bit to get everything to work right and access to the IOS images. Good luck!
