Re: seeking info regarding good available simulators


Lab to study for what? CCNA, CCNP, CCIE?

There is such a huge amount of discussion on simulators on this group,
you should do a search before posting.

In summary :-

Sims are not as good as routers.

For CCNA, the Boson Router Sim is good for answering the Boson supplied
questions. A pair of 1600 or 2500 series routers will cost less and
give you more, but you still need a switch. The kit can later be used
for CCNP, whereas the Sim can't.

For CCNP, none of the Sims cover the depth needed for the exams. They
give you access to more "virtual kit" for the money, but not the
real-world experience. Plenty of people pass CCNP without using Kit or
Sims.

For CCIE, forget it. You need kit.

None of the CCDx exams require hands-on experience.

Re: seeking info regarding good available simulators
Boson NetSim is the best simulator available. It has a lot of scenarios for
CCNA lab and it seems very realistic. Routers can be accessed through real
windows' telnet/hyperterminal using a loopback interface that the program
will ocnfigure for the pc. Very good program!

I would also add that if buy the CCNP beta you will get the CCNA for free,
and will get the full version of the CCNP once complete from Boson...

$249 - great price for a great package .
