Final weeks

Final weeks

With my lab time nearly finished, this week my plan is to complete every lab exercise and make sure my write-ups are satisfactory. This is important because from what I have seen, the extra points from the lab document can make the difference of passing. In terms of the lab, I am going to go back to the boxes I made some progress on but never figured out and hopefully see things I didn’t before.

DNS

This week, for whatever reason, my VM I use for PWK died out, so I reverted it to an earlier state (and unfortunately lost some notes..) When I was working on a specific machine that I previous made progress on, I was wondering why something wasn’t working properly. I don’t think I ever mentioned it in my blog, but in order to see some things, you need to set your DNS to something else. I thought this was interesting because it was very applicable to real life and it is very easy to miss small things like that and can make all the difference.
