Test Network/Swich Configurator Tool

Is there a tool/utility which will let me configure a sample network in the tool? I would like to make sure that I configure the sample/test network in the tool/utility before moving into a production setup.

The idea is to put all the switches and routers into the tool/utility. Assign all the IP addresses, VLANs... and for the tool/utility to tell me if I setup the network properly. That way when I setup my network at the clients I will know exactly what do to.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends what you want to do. Cisco have something called the Virtual Internet Routing Lab, or you could get Graphical Network Simulator from http://www.gns3.net/download

What Brand of switches are you using?

I am using Cisco SF300-48P switches, WatchGuard XTM 23, Ubiquity POE switch and Ubiquity UniFi APs. I was going to connect the UniFi APs to the Ubiquity POE switch. I am using the Cisco switches for POE security cameras. I need to simulate a VLAN setup to separate private and guest WiFi.
i am afraid there is no such tool, that can provide above combination!!
with 'GNS3/Cisco packet tracer/Boson' up to some extent only..
