I am glad to announce that we have a new switching section on What is it about? Well, most of you know that GNS3/Dynamips doesn’t support the emulation of Cisco Catalyst switches. We are sorry for that and be assured this situation is not somehow for an obscure purpose. The good news is that you can still make complete labs, routing and switching, by using GNS3/Dynamips and real Cisco switches.

In fact, many CCIE candidates are using this method and many others passed their lab. Of cource, using real switches can also be useful for other certs.

One problem, there are many howtos about making these kind of labs. Some even give wrong info or have mistakes. All of these howtos, posts, etc with different ways to make a lab can be really confusing.

This is why, in this new section, I tried to explain all the different methods and options with as many details as possible to provide a reference on the topic. I personally tested 3 of the 4 options and described what worked and what did not.

I hope this will help you to make your own lab. Please contact me if you spot mistakes or if you have some improvements that I can add.

Hello Jeremy,

Will the switching function be able to support DCL and CoA? This is a key for some of us in Security section but we will keep waiting for the perfection of your work.

Thank you.
