Hi,

Packet tracer 5.1 is good for practising labs for CCNP routing or switching and also you can try GNS3 for real time simulation of labs for CCNP and for your second question  L2 switch supports VLANs, but cannot route traffic from one VLAN to another without help from another L3 device to do the routing.

You will need to configure a trunk port to whatever device you use for routing, and configure the ip helper-address on each subinterface or vlan interface you setup on the L3 device.

Hope to Help !!

Hi,

You need to have a ios to run the router in the GNS3 if you have cco account you can download or from other sources you can have it to run the router emulation succefully.

Hope to help !!
