Packet Tracer


Can i share Packet Tracer with my collegues at work, or is it only intended (legaly available) for academy users?

Depends how you mean share?

The EULA states amongst all the other legalese -

"Subject to the terms and conditions of the End User License Agreement ... Cisco grants Academy a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable license to distribute (but only in the manner permitted in the following sentence) the Software ... to Academy's students, faculty and alumni solely as required to provide Networking Academy-related instruction" And Cisco "... grants to User a royalty-free, nonexclusive, and nontransferable license to use the Software and Documentation solely to create simulations for use in connection with Cisco Networking Academy."

The key thing to remember that PT is not a commercial network simulator, there's lots it doesn't do, and that is a learning tool that has lots of features that are not at all useful for commercial simulators.

As long as you are a Networking Academy student you can use it for your learning purposes, demonstrate it as a learning tool to others, and perhaps even let them try for themselves - but I would not recommend distributing it in a work place. (Other than in a Networking Academy)
