Cisco switch emulator

Hi all!

I am new to using GNS3, but know I realize that I just have routers and an Ethernet Switch. Is it possible to emulate a Cisco Catalyst IOS somehow?

Re: Cisco switch emulator

Hello Mike,

LAN switches work in hardware usind dedicated hardware ASIC for this reason they are not emulated.

see

http://www.gns3.net/phpBB/topic18.html?sid=7c97b5f6940dc567dc3878f99878669f

So the use of etherswitch modules in emulated routers is the only way to learn about LAN switches with the tool.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
