    Yes, Cisco is the defacto standard in the USA.

    The free lab now has 6 switches (4 of them L3 capable), and can be used to simulate Cisco's 3 layer model: access, distribution, and core.

    telnet 49001
    telnet 49002
    telnet 49003
    telnet 49004
    telnet 49005
    telnet 49006

    I don't think I will add anymore. I might add some 2621 routers as part of a routing tunnel lab. My Linux host might be part of this lab to provide a tunnel, but I have to look into the security, firewall, etc.

    2 routers have been added to the lab. There is now a tunnel to a lab site in Bucharest.

    If you have a UNIX host, some Cisco routers or switches you want to tunnel to my lab, please contact me. Thanks!
