What's Hot

Cisco Live - NEW FEATURES:
Collaborative, Real-Time Technical Support Services

The Cisco TAC now offers Cisco Live, a powerful suite of Internet-enabled tools with firewall-friendly features. These secure, encrypted Java applets can turn a simple phone call into an interactive collaboration session, allowing you and your Cisco TAC engineer to work together more effectively than ever before:

  • Collaborative Web browsing / URL sharing – Navigate the Cisco TAC Web Site simultaneously with your TAC engineer to find technical support information applicable to your case.
  • Collaborative whiteboard – Work together with a TAC engineer and use a palette of networking icons, labels, and shapes to create a topology diagram for troubleshooting your existing network.
  • Collaborative Telnet – Log into a Telnet-enabled device on your network and allow a TAC engineer to enter commands or simply observe your session.
  • Collaborative clipboard – Post large amounts of text, such as "show" command output, on a secure Web clipboard that a TAC engineer can view and attach to your case.

Have your Web browser ready the next time you work with a TAC engineer, and ask the engineer if your case would benefit from a Cisco Live collaboration session.


Software Advisor Tool - NEW:
New Tool Integrates Software Compatibility/Feature Information Analysis

The Software Advisor tool is the newest, most comprehensive utility for determining compatibility and feature information for Cisco IOS® and Cisco Catalyst® Operating System (CatOS) software. The Software Advisor consolidates the features of the Hardware/Software Compatibility Matrix, the Cisco Feature Navigator, and the Catalyst Compatibility Advisor in a single, convenient interface accessible from the Cisco TAC Web Site.

You can use the Software Advisor tool to:

  • Identify and explore features introduced in specific software releases
  • Match features you specify with software versions
  • Determine compatibility between hardware products and software releases
  • Research current or potential hardware and software configurations

On January 28, the Software Advisor will replace the Hardware/Software Compatibility Matrix, the Cisco Feature Navigator, and the Catalyst Compatibility Advisor on the TAC Web Site. Bookmark the Software Advisor tool today:

Optical Support Pages - NEW:
Cisco Optical Resources Now Include Four New Support Pages

The Cisco TAC Web Site now offers four new optical support pages, each of which indexes resources covering network design, software, software installation, implementation, configuration, and troubleshooting. Whether to brush up on Cisco long-haul optical transport solutions or to troubleshoot an optical services module (OSM) for automatic protection switching (APS), you will find the information you need on the following pages:
  • Cisco ONS 15800 Series DWDM platforms page – Eight resources providing information about the optical network system (ONS) dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) long-haul transport solution, including a firmware matrix, software matrix, field notices, software guides, and troubleshooting guides.
    http://www.cisco.com/tac/newsletter/ons_15800_dwdm_011502.html
  • Optical automatic protection switching (APS) page – Nearly 40 resources for APS of Packet over SONET (PoS), covering SMs, Internet core edge routers, PoS circuits, WAN switches, digital subscriber line access multiplexers (DSLAMs), and port adapters.
    http://www.cisco.com/tac/newsletter/optical_aps_011502.html

Put these four new optical support pages to work for you.


Output Interpreter Tool - ENHANCED:
Analysis of Cisco PIX® Firewall Command "show failover"

The Output Interpreter tool now helps you troubleshoot common errors with Cisco PIX Firewall failover configurations. Paste the output from the "show failover" command into the Output Interpreter for an instant analysis, including potential problems and suggestions for resolution. Specifically, the Output Interpreter's analysis will cover:

  • Cisco PIX Firewall role (primary or secondary) and status (active or standby)
  • Incorrect IP address configuration
  • Interface status (link down, waiting, testing, etc.)
  • Cable status summary
  • Stateless versus stateful failover
  • Logical unit counters

Let the Output Interpreter tool give you a thorough analysis of your "show failover" output:

Warranty Support Tool - UPDATED:
Check Warranty Status, Then Open a TAC Case

The expanded capabilities of the Warranty Support Tool (formerly known as the Warranty Status Tool) not only allow you to check the warranty status of your Cisco equipment, but also, if necessary, open an online technical support case with the Cisco TAC for your product that is under warranty.

For all customers with products under warranty, the Warranty Support Tool provides instant warranty status. For Cisco direct customers located in the United States, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, the Warranty Support Tool also allows you to open a TAC case for any product still under warranty.

When you need to check the warranty status of a Cisco product, start with the Warranty Support Tool:

OSPF Configuration Management White Paper - NEW:
Techniques to Verify and Audit OSPF Deployment

A new white paper, "OSPF Configuration Management via SNMP," helps you initially verify and periodically evaluate your deployment of the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) Protocol, to ensure continued compliance with your intended routing design. Major sections include:

  • Process definitions – including owner, goals, performance indicators, inputs, and output.
  • Task definitions – including initialization, iterative tasks, and seed file creation.
  • Data identification – from the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Management Information Base (MIB), Syslog-generated log files, or internal data structures accessed only by the command-line interface (CLI).
  • Data collection – from traps, Remote Monitoring (RMON) alarms and events, or polling, with internal data structures collected manually or with scripts.
  • Data presentation – modeled with sample reports that record and compare OSPF configuration data.

Use this new white paper to help ensure your OSPF deployment continues to run smoothly:
