5 stars A product well worth the money

Practice, practice, practice and that is exactly what the NetSim allows me to do. I may encounter something at work, I haven't done in months. I turn to NetSim to help me refresh my memory and build up my confidence. And it doesn't require much hardware resources. Always a good thing when running a simulator.

3 stars Helpful, but could be much better

In studying for my CCNP 300-115 SWITCH exam I came across NetSim for CCNP. Seeing the long list of supported protocols, along with a promotional discount, prompted me to purchase. Only after I started going through the CCNP exam objectives did I realize what all is missing from NetSim. Many important components of CCNP SWITCH are unsupported, making this a product of limited use for exam preparation.

No DHCP Snooping, no RSPAN, no IP ARP Inspection, no support for AAA-Radius or dot1x port authentication.

Many other good features are included, and plenty of good practice can be had with NetSim, but as I said, the lack of these features makes this a limited solution. I've had to fall back to using physical hardware for many lab exercises. Hopefully future releases and updates will improve the feature set.

5 stars Best Simulator I've tried yet

I tried the Sybex Simulator. What they supported worked OK, but they support so little. And there was no feed back to let you know you were wasting your time configuring things that were never going to work. GNS3 was free but weird enough that I had no faith in it. I got the free NetSim for CCNA CD with my purchase of the Boson CCNA Study Guide. My past experience with simulators gave me little hope that this would be any better. When I first launched it I explored the labs. SO MANY!!! Even though what WAS available for the CCENT was enough to get the CCENT, I wanted all the labs unlocked. So I paid up to unlock all the labs. I was not disappointed. This is the only lab I have been excited to use! I have yet to see any configuration scenario for certification that's not in here. On a side note - when I purchased the CCNA to CCNP upgrade, I accidentally purchased the EXAM upgrade, not the Simulator upgrade. I didn't realize that and opened a ticket to find out why my keys wouldn't activate. The support folks answered the ticket within a few hours and explained to me why my EXAM licence keys didn't work on the simulator. YIKES! So I called (They answered right away) and asked them to take the EXAMs back and get me the Simulator instead. They took care of it right then and there on the phone. They didn't hang up until I got my new key in email. Great support. Great labs.

This product is very, very helpful an as other people have mentioned it does save on purchasing hardware. I have been using Boson for almost 10 years and have been satisfied thoroughly. Wonderful product and lessons!!! Also when creating help tickets everyone is so nice, professional and courteous.
