How to install DIG dns tool on windows 11

This guide explains how to install the dig dns tool on windows 11 in a few steps. It is just a little bit modified version of How to install DIG dns tool on windows 10 howtos.

1. First download the latest Bind9 executable for Windows. All ISC software is available at However, there is a message, that the latest win executable is 9.6.23, which we may download from the link 9.16.23.

IOS XRv – no network interfaces in GNS3

A few words about the setup. We operate a remote GNS3 server setup, where all components (server even clients) are version 2.2.25. The remote server is deployed in a Linux container.


We operate several IOS XRv 9k appliances that were in default state default during the import process. We notice the following problem. Running small topos with an IOS XRv, once the router is loaded it had no network interfaces.

Site-to-Site IKEv2 IPSec VPN using Pre-Shared Key Authentication – simple configuration example for two Cisco routers

This config example shows a Site-to-Site configuration of IPsec VPN established between two Cisco routers. VPN will use IKEv2 protocol with PreSharedKey (PSK) remote-site authentication. Topology simulates a Branch router connected over an ISP to the HQ router. There are several options for how to configure IKEv2. In this example, I’m using the symmetric PSK witch crypto map, where the IKEv2 process is started by identifying interesting traffic using ACL. I’m also not using GRE tunnel for routing interconnection of both sides, instead, simple static default routes are used.


Configuration runs on GNS3 emulator and I’m using the CSR1000v platform with version 16.12.01a IOS XE as the older ISR platform (7200 15.4 IOS) does not support IKEv2. On real devices, IKEv2 is supported on Cisco ISR Generation 2 (G2) that runs Cisco IOS software version 15.2(4)M or later (for example 29xx ISR), ASA with 8.4.(1) and later (including ASA 5510).

Statefull NAT64 – simple configuration example on Cisco routers

The example shows a simplified configuration of a Statefull NAT64 demo, without DNS64. I instruct the stateful NAT64 router (CSR-1 – CSR100v) to translate IPv6 packets into IPv4 packets (and vice versa) using algorithmic mapping (defined by RFC 6052) of IPv4 addresses of IPv4 routers to and from IPv6 addresses by using manually defined IPv6 prefix 2001:db8::/96). In a similar manner, the IPv6 addresses of IPv6 routes are translated to and from IPv4 addresses.


R1/R2 run 7200 IOS image., R1 is pure IPv4 router, on the other site, R2 is IPv6 only.

Parrot OS v5.0 – How to manually install VirtualBox guest additions
