Although GNS3/Dynamips provides a simple virtual switch, it does not emulate Catalyst switches. This is due to the impossibility to emulate ASIC processors used in those type of devices.

Thanks for the reply but what about router, what type of processors do they use and why its impossible to emulate the
ASIC processors used devices don't get me wrong I am new as well as little curious.

A little background info may help http://rednectar.net/gns3-workbench/a-l ... 3-history/
The dynagen tutorial is good too http://dynagen.org/tutorial.htm

There's an article around somewhere where Christophe Fillot explains a bit more - so there are a few pointers.

Remember, if dynamips can't do it, GNS3 can't do it - as far a cisco goes
