After watch the Packet Tracer video tutorial about “What If” and “Visualization” on Packet Tracer Video Tutorial Part 1; also “Troubleshooting on Packet Tracer” and “Using Packet Tracer in Presentation” on Packet Tracer VIdeo Tutorial Part 2, this Part 3 video tutorial and also the last 2 tutorial on packet tracer that I am going to show you on:

Video Tutorial 5 – Guiding Student Configurations

At this chapter, the video tutorial guide the Cisco trainer/instructor to disable the physical and configuration tab (automatic mode), and only allow the student to use the command line to configure the cisco router in the cisco simulation software.

To disable this 2 tab (physical and configuration), just simply go to Option -> Preferences, go to Hide tab, tick the function you would like to hide, and also can go to administrative tab to key in password , and enable it, the password is to protect packet tracer software being changes by the student.

Video Tutorial 6 – Configuration Portability

This is the last packet tracer video tutorial that I going to shows, in this chapter, shows how we copy the real cisco product command line, and apply all this command over packet tracer by just copy and paste, or vice versa. Meaning that after you success configure the simulation router over the packet tracer, you are able to “show run”, copy down all the command line, and paste it into the real router without typing all the command over again.

This make me remember during I follow my senior over client side to configure cisco product, my senior use to have a pen drive, and all those cisco coding and command line are store in the notepad file. Once login to client’s cisco router, just copy the notepad, and paste in the hyper terminal, the command immediate apply after “copy run start” (save the setting)

Wanna to try this cisco simulation software? You can try to create a simple simulation with just a router, and try to put in the cisco router basic configuration. Once success the simulation, follow the “Configuration Portability” above, and paste the coding into your real cisco router. Happy learn on Cisco.
