Networksims.com

[Networksims.com site]

I have developed the Networksims.com (prev. network-emulators.com) package over the past years based on enhancing the teaching related to networking. Current demos are:

CCNA Challenge 1 [Click here - D1]. In this demo the basic details of the E0 port are defined, such as for its IP address, subnet mask, status, description, and so on. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters.

CCNP ONT Challenge [Click here - D19]. UNIQUE FEATURE! The new CCNP certification related to ONT (Optimizing Converged Networks - 642-845) has just been released. Networksims contains a full coverage of the practical studies for this new certification. This demo covers the configuration of WRED. The full version covers lots of interesting areas, such as queueing, QoS, and so on.

CCNP ISCW Challenge [Click here - D18]. UNIQUE FEATURE! The new CCNP certification related to ISCW (Implementing Secure Converged Wide-Area Networks - 642-825) has just been released. Networksims contains a full coverage of the practical studies for this new certification. This demo covers the configuration of Crytolists. The full version covers lots of interesting areas, such as crypto functions, IPS, and so on.

Exercises [Click here - D2]. In this demo there are three routers, in a ring topology. It involves defining the key details on each of the devices, such as their IP address and routing protocol, such that, at the end, the devices should be able to communicate with each other. A key factor is that they should be able to ping each other once the details have been set. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters, each of which should work.

Topology [Click here - D3]. This demo relates to the topology option in which there are four routers, in a ring topology with a backup route. The topology allows the user to practice their configurations. There are no details defined devices, and the user can enter whichever details are required.

Set Complete [Click here - D4]. This demo relates to the Set Complete option, using Tolopology 4, in which there are three routers in a star formation, and three hosts. It creates a completed setup, so that the user can debug using ping and tracert to determine if the system is working correctly.

CCNP (Adv Routing/BSCI) [Click here - D5]. This demo relates to the first challenge of the CCNP BSCI certification in which a DHCP pool is setup on the device. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters.

Fault-finding [Click here - D6]. UNIQUE FEATURE! This demo relates to the fault-finding challenges, where a random fault is placed on a defined topology, and the user must find it. If required the solution can be shown at any time. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters.Other faults are at:

Cisco Wireless Aironet 1200 [Click here - W1]. UNIQUE FEATURE! This demo relates to the configuration of an Aironet 1200 Wireless Access Point, using the last two major versions of the Aironet IOS. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters. Other demos are at:

[Click here - W2]
[Click here - W3]
[Click here - W4]
[Click here - W5]
[Click here - W6]

Cisco PIX/ASA Simulator [Click here - P1]. UNIQUE FEATURE! This demo relates to the configuration of a PIX/ASA device, for most of its significant features. It covers all of the CCSP requirements, along with covering PIX V6.x and V7.x. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters. Other demos are at:

[Click here (V6)- P2]
[Click here (V7)- P3]
[Click here (V6)- P4]
[Click here (V7)- P5]
[Click here (V7)- P14]

Switch challenge [Click here - D9]. In this demo involves setting up basic details on the Ethernet ports on the switch, and also defining CDP. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters. The switch supports both Layer 2 and Layer 3 activities.

Security challenge [Click here - D11]. The simulators follow the CCSP certification, along with challenges that are useful in day-to-day activities. These challenges relate to security for routers, firewalls, and switches.

Host challenge [Click here - D10]. This demo shows the configuration of a Windows host for it's network details, and for the testing of the details with IPCONFIG and IPCONFIG/ALL. Each time the challenge is run it gives a new set of challenge parameters.

Using HELP [Click here - D15]. This demo shows the help available through the e-Book with the simulators.

Activities [Click here - D16]. Often studying through certification material can be a little boring after a while, so Networksims has a whole lot of activities which can lighten the burden of study. This one involves using an IP Calculator to determine the number of subnets and avaliable hosts for given IP classificaitons and subnet masks. The following shows the placement of host and network IP addresses around a defined network:
