Good Routing Simulator/Practice Tool
Posted on 2011-09-06
I am teaching a basic class in networking concepts. My class is doing very well overall, but is having difficulty understanding some of the concepts associated with routing and routers. Unfortunately, due to the particular setup we have in our lab, I don't have the particular equipment for them to really be able to interconnect two networks with a router and configure the routing between them.
I was wondering if anyone knew of a good, and hopefully freely available, simulator or practice tool that I could have them use, in lieu of actual networking hardware, to give them hands-on familiarity with the basics of routing.
