"Virtual" IOS?


Is it possible to download Cisco's IOS and use it as virtual on for example VMware?

Or do I have to buy a router to study and test the IOS?

Cisco's IOS is not intended to run on general-purpose computers, and few (if any) IOS versions are intended to run on x86 CPUs.

There is a Cisco 7200 Simulator:

but you probaly run into licensing issues when you download and run the IOS on it. I cannot imagine Cisco would like that.
