How to run the New Cisco Networking Academy RS Introduction to Networking Offline

October 13, 2013 Leave a comment

Google indeed does not have all the answers! So here you go:

  1. Download the offline material (it’s a zip file) from using your academy instructor account or if you’re a student, request a copy from your academy instructor.
  2. Extract the zip file; Windows would usually offer to create an extraction folder so just accept it.
  3. Enable IIS 8 (Control Panel >> Programs and Features >> Turn Windows features on or off >> Internet Information Services).
  4. Copy the extraction folder to C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
  5. Launch your favorite browser and key-in http://localhost/the_extraction_folder_name (e.g. http://localhost/CCNA-R-S_ITN/)

Hope this helps…


Dynamips in Windows 7: an update

December 20, 2010 Leave a comment

I thought of revising the previous post but decided to just add this update instead. Dynamips now works 100% with Windows 7. It now can interact with the physical network. Simply download and install the latest version of WinPcap then BAM!!! you’re on. So now, I don’t have to shift between Windows XP and Windows 7 when I needed to mess around with Dynamips… 🙂
