paging hddod -- ICND pays off.

I had a phone call from a client this morning, "Please help us!"
They have an office in London and another in Milan.
They could sit in front of a machine in London, and ping the London router. They could ping the Milan router. But they couldn't ping anything else on the Milan LAN.
Cisco engineers -- engineers from Cisco -- have been out in Milan all last night, swapped the router, swapped the switch swapped the wires, couldn't fix it.
So I arrived at the London office, opened up the laptop, and started to play.

Fixed it very quickly -- all stuff you'll have covered in your ICND course.
And my client thinks I'm a genius.

    ... and it's not what you want. I'd like to thank the US authorities for approving my visa application, and returning my passport to me safely.…

    Home again. On this occasion all the paperwork was in order, and the interview proceeded as planned. Now we wait.

    Off to the US Embassy in London.
