EIGRP PDM, Protocol Dependent Module

EIGRP supports different Network Layer Protocols, i.e IPv4, IPv6, IPX and AppleTalk (Though Last two are useless now). To support all of the protocols at a time EIGRP uses PDM for each of the protocols separately. Each PDM will maintain a separate series of tables containing the routing information that applies to a specific protocol, means there be separate IPv4/EIGRP table and IPv6/EIGRP table in the router.
This way EIGRP can add PDMs to easily adapt to new or revised routed protocols such as IPv6. Each PDM is responsible for all functions related to its specific routed protocol.
The EIGRP module sends and receives packets but passes received information to DUAL, which makes routing decision, i.e chooses the best route from Local Topology Tables and put into the Routing Table.

The main function of IPv4/EIGRP module are:
  • Send and receive EIGRP packets that bear IP data.
  • Notify DUAL (Diffusing Update Algorithm) of new IP routing information that is received.
  • Maintain the results of DUAL routing decisions in the IP routing table.
  • Redistribute routing information that was learned by other IP-capable routing protocols.”

How to import Putty Saved Connections to mRemoteNG

Just started using mRemoteNG and its being very cool to connect to different remote connection with different protocols e.g Window Remote Desktop, VNC to Linux, SSH, HTTP connection etc. from a single application. As new user I configured some remote desktop connection which was quite easy to figure out. But when I wanted to add SSH connections, it came in my mind to import all of the saved connections in the putty. But I couldn't figure it out how can it be done, though it was quite easy and here are the steps. Open your mRemoteNG Create a folder if you want segregation of multiple networks Create a new connection Enter the IP address of remote server under connection in Config pane Under the config pane, select protocol " SSH version 2 ".  Once you select protocol to SSH version 2 you are given option to import putty sessions, as shown in the snap below. In the above snap, I have imported CSR-AWS session from my saved sessions in Putty.

Connection control operation failed for disk 'ide1:0'

I was getting this error while removing Operating System ISO image mounted on the Virtual Machine. What worked for me, is 1. Uncheck the "Connected and Connect at power on" from Device Status. 2. Then Change the Device type from " Datastore ISO File to Client Device " Radio Button 3. and press OK to save the changes. Note:- I was able to remove the mounted ISO only by directly logging to the ESXi at https://esxi-ip-address/ui where it asks "The guest operating system has locked the CD-ROM door and is probably using the CD-ROM, which can prevent the guest from recognizing media changes. If possible, eject the CD-ROM from inside the guest before disconnecting. Disconnect anyway and override the lock?" You need to select yes to eject the CD-ROM and then remove the ISO file successfully.
