Is there any software simulation for Cisco ASA to make some practice!!! I have tried Packet tracer and Boson but its only for routers and switches!

I've managed to run ASA on GNS on my windows laptop.

first download the two files linked below


then on the preference on GNS, follow the one in the picture.

kernel cmd line:
append auto nousb ide1=noprobe bigphysarea=16384 console=ttyS0,9600n8 hda=980,16,32

hope this helps :-)

just advise if you encountered any problems or if your not familiar with GNS

Thanks Pete,  its really good solution, but is there possibilty to connect it to other devices (PC, router or switch) so i can check my ASA tests if its right or not!!
Simply put, you cannot download ASA images for free - legally.

Feel free to browse around though :)
