    Default Packet Tracer for linux

    Hello all.
    I am looking for Cisco Packet Tracer, any version, for Linux.
    I know that this program is not distributed under GNU/GPL and Cisco only gives a copy to its students and I'm not one of them .
    I do have an old version (3.2) of this program but I can't make it work with wine .
    Any torrent file or even the 3.2 for Linux will works for me.
    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Is it just a regular LAN tracing network sniffing type of tool? Any
    reason Wireshark isn't an option?

    Good luck.

    Is a graphical network designer for professional use. I am trying to become a pro . You can build your own virtual network and test it before build the real physical network.

    here is a link to a blog (is spanish, not a problem I think) that I found. You can see the screenshots to have an idea.

    As I said, I have the version 3.2 and is not working under wine

    Aloha! Yeah, old thread, but I was looking to do this today. So...here it goes...

    Find the .deb.bin version of Cisco PT (I used v5.3). open the file and look to see where it copies the .deb file. Run the .bin and when it craters, go to the directory in /tmp listed in the .bin file header. You will find the .deb file. copy this to a "working directory". Yast an app called alien and install. then type:

    su

    alien -r /"working directory(ies)"/"filename".deb /"working directory(ies)"/"filename".rpm --scripts

    Run rpm -hiv "filename".rpm and look to see what's missing (usually some 32 bit QT or gtk stuff). Yast whatever it needs (use the 'provides' to search in Yast). Don't worry about libc.so.5.

    Install your new rpm with --nodeps (rpm -hiv "filename".rpm --nodeps) after correcting the other dependencies.

    ln -s /usr/local/PacketTracer5/PacketTracer5 /usr/local/bin/PacketTracer5

    As your normal user, you should now be a CCNA by typing PacketTracer5 and [ENTER] at a prompt.

    It's dirty but it works WONDERFULLY. Don't forget that your saved data and errata will be saved in /home/whatever/PacketTracer5/


    Cheers!
