Cisco Packet Tracer 7.2.1 is a powerful simulation software for CCNA and CCNP certification exam training. The video tutorials provided in this sections will help you to understand the basics of Packet Tracer 7.2.1 operations (tutorial 1) and how the simulation mode works to get a deep analysis of packet flow between network devices (tutorial 2).
Video tutorial 3 provides an advanced network configuration example using Packet Tracer 7.2.1 in a VOIP lab scenario.
Tutorial 1 - Basic network configuration
This first video demonstrates basic use of Packet Tracer 7.2.1. It will show you how to configure IP services on a Cisco ISR router and a workstation in the CiscoTM Packet Tracer 7.2.1 network simulation software :
- IP address configuration
- Connection to a router using a crossover cable
- Initial configuration of the router and the workstation
You can configure the workstation's global and interface settings on the Config tab.
The Desktop tab provides additional tools to configure workstation dial-up settings, IP settings, use a terminal window, open a host command line interface, open a web browser, configure LinksysTM wireless settings, establish a VPN connection, generate network frames, and issue SNMP requests to network devices.
Tutorial 2 -Following packets
This second video tutorial shows how Packet Tracer can capture and display the content of packet as they go through the network (simulation mode). Features are similar to an advanced network tracking software and allows monitoring of frames as they go through and are processed by network devices. The network monitoring tools are available in Packet Tracer simulation mode.
Tutorial 3 - Configure Cisco Call Manager Express (CME)
This advanced Packet Tracer 7.2.1 video tutorial explains the different options available in Cisco Packet Tracer for Call Manager Express (CME) configuration on a Cisco 2811 ISR router.
