I am studying for ICND2 and I didnt want to purchase any lab equipment, so I thought Id go downt the simulator path. I have read many posts here regarding
1. Packet Tracer - which you need a login to access (something I dont have)
2. GNS3 - which I have downloaded and just seem to have too many problems with, ie getting a IOS that works and it doesnt support switches
3. I have looked at RouterSim, Transcender simulator, cisco press also have one but it only covers ICND1, also looked at Tom Lammle simulator
Could someone please tell me which simulator they consider to be the best.
Even though I am currently wanting it for ICND2 exam, it would be good if I was able to use it for other future exams, ie CCNA security.
