Petition to Increase Cisco VIRL Node Limit

August 5, 2015 4 comments

Cisco VIRL is a great tool but it is artificially limited to a maximum of 15 nodes today. I have created a petition to collect names to send to Cisco, to show that the community really wants to increase this limit to at least 30 nodes.

Please go sign the petition if you are interested in seeing VIRL get support for more than 15 nodes.

Please sign here.

Educational IOS

February 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Greg at Etherealmind has a call for educational IOS up on his site. It had to be redone because the signatures were lost from the first round. Dynamips is great but it has it’s issues and takes a lot of horsepower. Using IOU is illegal, it would be for the best if Cisco made an educational IOS available, an IOS that has all features but cripples the throughput which doesn’t matter in a lab anyway. Cisco is now also using IOU in the CCIE lab for the troubleshooting, maybe they could release this in some form? Please sign the petition here.

Call for educational IOS

July 29, 2010 1 comment

As many of you know, with IOS 15.0 Cisco has moved to one IOS per platform with different licenses for different features. This certainly means fewer versions to administer but it also means that the future for Dynamips/GNS3 isn’t looking so bright. There is a need in the certification community but also for testing designs to be able to emulate routers. It would be great if Cisco release an educational IOS or better yet an emulator that they official supported (Packet tracer doesn’t count). Please sign Greg Ferros petition at if you want to support this. I have already signed it.
