I'm currently in my CCNA 2 class and working on the 2500 and 2600 routers.  I was wondering if there was any "Download" for a router simulator, or anything of some sort.

Hi ndelorito,

I believe Boson Router Simulator has a trial version.

Good luck.

3v1lj1m,

or InteraX would u guys happen to know one with freeware?.  i'll have to try out both of those and see which one is better.  But if ccnasim is exactly the cisco simulator then wow.  And hopefully its inexpensive

ndelorito,

From personal experience I would advise the Boson NetSim.
I found a bug in my copy of ccnasim where by you were unable to perform any form of ISL routing.
;-)
They've probably fixed it already, but just for note.

I don't think there are any freeware router simulators. At least none of any note. Boson seems to be the best and gets shipped with the Cisco books.

the people in my cisco class used boson until i showed them the ccnasim 3.2
you can find 3.0 on kazaa if you try but really it comes down to what features you want.  the interface on ccnasim is more visual (you get a network layout and double clicking a device takes you into that device to configure it)
the boson is similar in that it uses a graphical network layout (and actually you can use more equipment) but, if i'm not mistaken, you have tabs that represent each piece of equipment (correct me if i'm wrong on that one interax)

once again it all comes down to what you prefer.  one person that passed the ccna said the ccnasim was similar to  what he had on the test.

ps - the version i used (3.0 and 3.2) didn't have any problems with ISL
=D

Have you looked under the Tools section on the Network Academy Website? As an instructor I can see the student version of the PC and Mac version of Router eSim.
