Radius configuration trick to allow "CLID-like" filtering on ACS for l2tp/pptp

Here is "trcik" to allow l2tp/pptp client access filtering based on their IP-address for ACS 5.X
1) configure NAS with "vpdn aaa attribute nas-ip-address vpdn-tunnel-client"
This command will allow IOS to send client ip address in attribute 4 like this output from debug:
RADIUS:  NAS-IP-Address      [4]   6
2) Use "compound condition"  in ACS Access Policies - Authorization rules to match based on this attribute.
Tested on 15.1(4)M6 IOS for 7200 series router.

Finally I nailed it. I passed on the first try after so much time spent since 2013... Just since June 2015 I was at both Cisco360 workshops and spent more than 400 hours labbing (workshops time is not counted) and more than 300 hours VoD from different training vendors...
Now I feel completely drained and squeezed like a lemon, time to make a pause.

Cisco IOS tcl simple script to use instead of interface level configuration


set area 0
ios_config "router os 1" "router-id [ lindex [exec "sh ip int b lo0 | exclude face"] 1 ] "
foreach i {
} { ios_config "router os 1" "net [ lindex [exec "sh ip int b $i | exclude face"] 1 ] area $area"

Cisco IOS tclsh oneliner to configure vrf on interface

ios_config "int Et0/0" "ip vrf for VPNA" [exec "sh run int Et0/0 | i addr"]

More advanced stuff:
foreach i {
} { ios_config "int $i" "ip vrf for VPNA" [exec "sh run int $i | i addr"] }

Useful EEM to remember

Simple route-map question for interview

In which range will it match metric?

route-map MATCH_METRIC
 match metric 1 +- 999 1000 500 +- 500 1

quick note: ninja command to use during the lab

quick note: standby use-bia

Q. What is the standby use-bia command and how does it work?

A. By default, HSRP uses the preassigned HSRP virtual MAC address <...> In order to configure HSRP to use the burnt-in address of the interface as its virtual MAC address, instead of the default, use the standby use-bia command.

Note: Using the standby use-bia command has these disadvantages:
  • When a router becomes active the virtual IP address is moved to a different MAC address. The newly active router sends a gratuitous ARP response, but not all host implementations handle the gratuitous ARP correctly.
  • Proxy ARP breaks when use-bia is configured. A standby router cannot cover for the lost proxy ARP database of the failed router.

quick note: mpls ldp router-id

Don't forget yo use "force" to quicker change router-id (don't wait for event that lead to router-id change).

How to test your url filtering via telnet during the lab

Use simple method, don't forget to place two new lines after "Host":
telnet 8080
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
GET /testurl.html HTTP/1.0
Host: R1.lab

Most awesome show running-config parsing shortcuts for CCIE R&S Lab I'm using

Find passwords with space sign at the end:
sh run | i _$

Show "router bgp/eigrp/ospf/rip" section of the configuration:
sh run | s r b
sh run | s r e
sh run | s r o
sh run | s r r

Show interface config only:
sh run | s int
Note: you can't use sh ru | s i because "i" in this case means "section include", also as "e" means "exclude"

Use short and informative route-map names, for example:
route-m c2e
to describe route-map for redistribution from connected to EIGRP.

Searching route in all VRFs:
sh ip ro vrf * | i ...

Show "crypto" part of the configuration (everything about IPSec):
sh run | s ^cr
sh run | s cry

Show routing part of the configuration with route-maps and without route-maps(longer and less used):
sh run | s ^r
sh run | s router

Less used, but valuable.
Show all ip prefix lists:
sh run | s ip p

Show all ip access-lists:
sh run | s ip ac

Note: I'm using sh run instead of sh ru because there is show rudpv1 command also exists.

Useful command to debug ip tos precedence packets

Yet another note for myself:

R1#sh run int s1/0
Building configuration...

Current configuration : 244 bytes
interface Serial1/0
 ip address
 ip accounting precedence input


R1#sh interfaces s1/0 precedence
    Precedence 0:  408 packets, 42172 bytes
    Precedence 3:  2812 packets, 180528 bytes
    Precedence 4:  2819 packets, 180976 bytes
    Precedence 6:  613 packets, 41872 bytes

How to get list of processes from Cisco IOS router/switch and CPU usage per process via SNMP

With help of snmpwalk utility you can list processes and their CPU usage per-process even if router is at 100% CPU load. Use the following OIDs to list processes: and this OID to list corresponding CPU usage per-process:
For example here is output from snmpwalk from 2811 router with 99% cpu and no SSH/telnet access because of high CPU load with appropriate retry/timeout parameters:

snmpwalk -r 9 -t 5 -v 2c -c public
iso. = STRING: "cpf_process_msg_holdq"
iso. = STRING: "AAA Cached Server Group"
iso. = STRING: "EM Background Process"
iso. = STRING: "Key chain livekeys"
iso. = STRING: "TPLUS"
iso. = STRING: "VSP_MGR"
iso. = STRING: "Crypto WUI"
iso. = STRING: "Crypto Support"
iso. = STRING: "IPSECv6 PS Proc"
iso. = STRING: "CCVPM_R2"
iso. = STRING: "EPHONE MWI Refresh"
iso. = STRING: "FB/KS Log HouseKeeping"
iso. = STRING: "EPHONE MWI BG Process"
iso. = STRING: "Skinny HW conference digit event"
iso. = STRING: "VOICE REG BG Process"

snmpwalk -r 9 -t 5 -v 2c -c public
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 87
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0
iso. = Gauge32: 0

As you can see, TPLUS process is using 87% CPU. Seems it is a software defect and my IOS will be upgraded.
