How To Build Red Hat Enterprise IPA RPMs For CentOS 5

How To Build Red Hat Enterprise IPA RPMs For CentOS 5

How To Set Up A Cisco Lab On Linux (CentOS 5.2)

How To Set Up A Cisco Lab On Linux (CentOS 5.2)

I recently decided to study for the Cisco CCSP certification. My main concern in the beginning was the fact that most of the lab simulation software that I found out there could only run on Windows, this was a problem for me given the fact that I do not own a windows computer. After a quick search I found the wonderful Dynamips project that goes beyond what other simulators do by running actual Cisco IOS images, as well as the PEMU project which allows for running of Cisco PIX images. To integrate the various pieces of software and provide an interface for interaction with the devices I used dynagen.
