Boson 'NetSim' and RouterSim 'Network Visualizer'

http://bosondownload.com/netsim/netsim6.exe <- free demo

http://www.routersim.com/download/CCNA_NetVis_5_Demo.EXE <- free demo

Neither of which offer much in the ISIS/OSPF/BGP department.. they are mainly for ccna level and intro eigrp. :huh:

You cannot exactly test access-lists or get route summaries and route distribution going, vlan support isn't all that there, etc.

You are better off going out and picking up 2-3 * 2610/2620 routers, 2 * 2950 switch, 1 * 3550 multilayer, and something to do isdn/frame clouds over (adtran, other cisco router doing all the routing, etc) :roll:-_-

I agree, the real deal is way better :-)

I got a 2500 for FREE , and got a really good deal on two other's.

If you ask around you may well get some really cheap or free.

Good luck :-)

If you live in a larger center, an awesome place to ask around is hosting companies. They wil always keep three or four outdated routers, firewalls, etc. And if you are lucky they will give you one for free or for dirt cheap.

Had lots of luck with them in the past.
