Hi,

I would like to train a group of aspiring students who want to work
with cisco router environment. Tough call, but real routers are a bit
pricy here. Getting older models out of ebay won't be cheap either
from where I reside. Though I prefer working with Dynamips, but it
takes load of CPU resources even after setting up optimized idlepc and
so called Ghost RAM. Almost all the PCs used here in the classroom are
of 600-800 mhz (celeron). I gave a try with Boson's demo version of
router simulator: NetSim, but it seems little taxing (not always) on
those systems. It's okay almost all the time but it takes really long
time when loading a complex template.

I heard routersim (www.routersim.com) is g-r-e-a-t but how does it
fare when it comes to running that on 600-800 mhz systems?

Any ideas on which simulators to be bought?

TIA
