I have noticed that an ideal CCNP BCMSN Lab includes 2 x 3560 L3 Switches. Which is a little cost prohibitive in the UK for a home lab! I have bought a couple of 2950s to play with, my question is Packet Tracer 4.1 doesn't seem to include a Layer 3 switch - does anyone know of a good simulator to use, so that I can practice L3 routing/switching while using 'real' kit for the rest of my BCMSN training? Or any news on Packet Tracer 5.0?
I know I can use 'router-on-a-stick' to work around this issue and L3 switching is only a small part of the BCMSN, I was just hoping someone had a nice tip or solution to get around buying some 3560s!
