Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport tar upp hur ett par olika programvaror, nämligen Packet Tracer och GNS3 kan användas för att simulera verklig utrustning i syftet att använda dessa hos ett företag i labbmiljö för att förbereda en implementation av ny hårdvara samtidigt som kostnaderna kan hållas nere, men också hur dessa programvaror kan användas i studiesyfte och använda som komplement till fysisk utrustning inför laborationer och examinationer i de olika kurserna som Cisco erbjuder. Det är också en utvärdering för att avgöra vilken av programvarorna som är den bästa att använda. En topologi sätts upp, komplett med IP-adressering med relativt vanlig konfiguration för att se hur dessa programvaror hanterar och klarar av dessa konfigurationer. Det visar sig att båda programvarorna presterar bra i de flesta fall, men de avbildningar av IOS som testats i GNS3 saknar stöd för PortSecurity som standard, så Packet Tracer tar titeln. Packet Tracer lämpar sig bäst för grundläggande studier med sina enkla paketspårningar medan GNS3 fungerar bättre för mer avancerade topologier med möjlighet till import av befintlig hårdvara.

Nyckelord:  Cisco, Packet Tracer, GNS3, Simulering.

Abstract [en]

This report focuses on Packet Tracer and GNS3 and how these can be used to simulate real equipment at a company to prepare for implementation of new hardware while mitigating cost. It also shows how these can be used for educational purposes as a complement to real-world equipment for the courses held by Cisco. It’s also an evaluation of both softwares to decide which of them that is the best choise in a given scenario. A topology is created, complete with an IPaddressing table and fairly common configurations. The goal is to examine how the softwares behave and if they can handle the configurations. Both of them do well during testing, but the images of IOS that were tested in GNS3 do not support PortSecurity in its standard configuration so the title go to Packet Tracer. Packet Tracer is best suited for basic educational purposes because of its easy and understandable packet tracking abilities while GNS3 is better for more advanced topologies with support for importing pre-owned hardware.
