My experience with networking, and .NET to be blogged here. Since I dont have an always online connection at home, the posts may not be live enough and perhaps even sporadic.

Configuring Cisco router through ASP.NET 2.0
OK, so how do you do interactive programming of the Cisco device using the cool .NET 2.0 System.IO.Ports.SerialPort class? Here's a sample. This sample will work with Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2. I built a website project based on the filesystem (i.e., not on IIS or FTP). The web page gives you a dropdown list to choose from amongst COM1, COM2, and COM3, lets you type the enable password in a text box and the command to run. It then displays the result of the command into a label. What you can do with it is only limited by your imagination. Enjoy again!
