The notion of students "borrowing" an item and the idea
of getting it back in working order are not really in the
In general, I prefer to be in a situation where the box
can be taken apart into tiny pieces and no-one will ever notice.
Otherwise, there can be much anxiety at the end of the course.
And I find that students already have enough anxiety at the
end of a course...
I have had people suggest that they have boxes that they could
share on the network. IE remote access to routers. But that
is usually inconsistant with healthy network security,
so I am shying away from that one too.
Password recovery is a good topic. I have tons of topics
that I want to cover. using the cisco web site to find
passwd recovery procedures is one of them.
Thank you for your note.

% Hello everyone,
% Please excuse me for stepping in and making a request.
% I am teaching OSU CS 372 next term. It is an introduction to
% networking class.
% In my normal way, I am trying to make this class more hands on.
% But again, in the normal way, I don't have much of a budget to work
% I would like to get my students up to the elbows in cisco IOS.
% At least to the point that they have to hook a cisco router up
% and write a config file.
% I am hoping that some of you know of people nearby who have a
% closet full of old cisco routers. Is there any chance any
% of you know about anyone who has a spare router? If you know
% of one, I would be glad to put it to use in my class next
% Classes start on 1/9/2002. If you know of a router that I could
% use, please let me know as soon as you can.
% If you don't know anything about any of this... Then I am sorry
% to have disturbed your email.
% Thank you for any help you can provide with this effort.
% As an aside, I am writing up the final course assignments and
% course schedule this week. If you think there is something
% specific that OSU CS students should know about networking,
% now is the time to tell me. And I will see if I can get
% it into the material.
