Dear ArabHardware Community,
Asalumo Alaykoom All ... Greeting!
Is GNS3 capable of simulating all the labs of CCNA Security and CCNP security?
I started to use GNS3 few months back and I could connect GNS3 with junction of SDM and I can see that everything is in a progress smoothing... take the knowledge, understand it, implement it, test it and feel it... successfully
I'm writing this because I got a chance to study both CCNA Security and CCNP Security in a real Cisco authorised training centre and the only benefit of attending this lab will be is that they have the real Cisco equipment’s
! as you know IPS/IDS, ASA, Cisco MARS, PIX are expensive to be purchased for a educational purpose! I do feel that I can purchase the books from Amazon my self and study all the materials myself, GNS3 is not only awesome for study.. it saves time since the whole course will take two years to finish.
I started doing my CCNA Security few month back and I already bought two books from Amazon for CCNA Security:
One is the Cisco "Authorised self-study Guide" IINS http://www.amazon.com/Implementing-C...5316913&sr=8-3
And the second is
"CCNA Security Exam CRAM" http://www.amazon.com/CCNA-Security-...5316951&sr=8-1
Both of the books are great for a self-study and I really recommend them if someone is trying to do the CCNA Security, However it might be difficult for the CCNP Security! and I can see that Cisco already released the new books for CCNP Security, I'm planning to purchase them all once I complete my CCNA Sec, they are as the following:
1-CCNP Security IPS 642-627 Official Cert Guide
2-CCNP Security Firewall 642-617 Official Cert Guide
3-CCNP Security Secure 642-637 Official Cert Guide
4-CCNP Security VPN 642-647 Official Cert Guide
Your replay and advices will be very much appreciated.
Note: if I hear from you that GNS3 is capable if simulating labs even for CCIE Security or even Architect then I will jump from my chair and hit my head with the ceiling!!! LOL
Sorry for the language as my Arabic writing is poor.
