RoleReversal has also done this course, and with positive feedback.
I am also thinking of having a look at this at some point.

Let us know how you get on.

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

Dark_Knight,

Hope you enjoy the OSCP. From my experience it was a great course and I learned a lot (and confirmed a lot of stuff I 'sort of' knew from other sources). My lab time (took 60 days) finished around a month ago and I have the exam scheduled *soon*.

I'd advise not taking your foot of the gas (as I did) if you start to get through the material quickly. Some of the final challenges and extra miles can be challenging and time consuming. Plus I would have liked to have spent more time 'playing' in the lab after completing the required exercises.

Let us know how you get on, specifically I'd be interested to see how the material compares to the CEH you've already got, as it's on my list of potential 'nexts'....

<Edit> as a side note, any advice from those already passed the exam would be appreciated as I'm starting to get slightly nervous...</Edit>

Thanks for the response man. I appreciate it and I will keep the board informed.

Dark_Knight best of luck man. You'll learn a lot in that course. It's damn well organized and very hands on. A friend of mine took it and recommended taking it over the C|EH.

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

Course is going well so far. For those that have done the course I am trying to
to get the domain name of the dns. I have identified the dns and tried using the host command to do a reverse lookup but that failed. What other options can I use?The dns doesn't seem to have a ptr should it?

Make sure you add the DNS to your resolve.conf file...
OSCP, GPEN...Hopefully more to follow

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

# man host
...
SYNOPSIS
      host [-aCdlnrTwv] [-c class] [-N ndots] [-R number] [-t type] [-W wait]
            [-4] [-6] {name} [server]
...


so.. 'host -t ptr 1.2.3.4 ip.of.dns.server' is giving no joy?

Are you sure you've found a legit DNS server?
