What Cisco Packet tracer that?
Cisco Packet Tracer network simulation is a powerful tool for training Cisco authentication. It provides a good interface to view various routers and network devices for us, these analog devices with a lot of options, with the use of a physical machine, we can use an unlimited devices in the network. We can create multiple networks in a single project, to get specialized training. Packet Tracer will be provided to the application layer protocol we simulated, such as HTTP, DNS, as well as RIP, OSPF, EIGRP routing protocols.
Now, it has released contains ASA 5505 firewall configuration command-line version. Packet Tracer is typically used Windows version, but there is no Linux version. Here, we can download and install the Cisco Packet Tracer.
The new release of Cisco Packet Tracer version:
Next-generation Cisco Packet Tracer version will be Cisco Packet Tracer 6.2, is currently in development.
My environment settings:
Host Name: desktop1.unixmen.com
IP Address: 192.168.0.167
Operating System: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Desktop
# Ifconfig | grep inet
# Lsb_release -a
Step 1: First, we need to download the Cisco Packet Tracer.
To download it from the official website of Packet Tracer, we need to hold a token sign Cisco NetSpace, then select from the Offering CCNA menu> Cisco Packet Tracer to begin the download. If we do not have the token can be obtained from the following link, I've uploaded it to Droppox.
Official site: https://www.netacad.com/
Most people do not download Packet Tracer token, for this reason, I have uploaded it to dropbox, you can get Packet Tracer from the following URL.
Download Cisco Packet Tracer 6.1.1
Step 2: Install Java:
To install Packet Tracer, we need to install java. We can use the default installation of warehouse java; or to add PPA repository, and then updates the package cache to install java.
To install the default jre use the following command
# Sudo apt-get install default-jre
Use the following steps to install the Java Run-time and set up the environment.
Java download from the official site: Download Java
# Tar -zxvf jre-8u31-linux-x64.tar.gz
# Sudo mkdir -p / usr / lib / jvm
# Sudo mv -v jre1.8.0_31 / usr / lib / jvm /
# Cd / usr / lib / jvm /
# Sudo update-alternatives --install "/ usr / bin / java" "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/jre1.8.0_31/bin/java" 1
# Sudo update-alternatives --set "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/jre1.8.0_31/bin/java"
Set Java environment by editing the user profile, and add the path related parameters. When we add the user parameter file, each user on the machine we can use the java.
# Sudo vi / etc / profile
Add the following entry to the / etc / profile file:
export JAVA_HOME = / usr / lib / jvm / jre1.8.0_31
export PATH = $ PATH: /usr/java/jre1.8.0_31/bin
Run the following command to activate the java path immediately.
#. / Etc / profile
Check the Java version and the Environment:
# Echo $ JAVA_HOME
# Java -version
Step 3: Enable 32-bit architecture supports:
For Packet Tracer, we need some 32 package. To install the 32-bit package, we need to install some dependencies with the following command.
# Sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
# Sudo apt-get update
# Sudo apt-get install libc6: i386
# Sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0
# Sudo apt-get install libnss3-1d: i386 libqt4-qt3support: i386 libssl1.0.0: i386 libqtwebkit4: i386 libqt4-scripttools: i386
Step 4: Extract and install the package:
Use the tar command to unpack the downloaded package.
# Mv Cisco \ Packet \ Tracer \ 6.1.1 \ Linux.tar.gz \? Dl \ = 0 Cisco_Packet_tracer.tar.gz
# Tar -zxvf Cisco_Packet_tracer.tar.gz
Navigate to the directory after extracting
# Cd PacketTracer611Student
Now the start the installation. Installation process is very simple, just a few seconds to get.
# Sudo ./install
To use Packet Tracer to work, we need to set up the environment, Cisco has provided an environment script, we need to root user to run the script to set the environment variable.
# Sudo ./set_ptenv.sh
Installation ended. Next, we need to create a desktop icon for the Packet Tracer.
By creating the following file to the desktop to create a desktop icon.
# Sudo su
# Cd / usr / share / applications
# Sudo vim packettracer.desktop
Vim editor or use your favorite editor to add the following to the file.
Name = Packettracer
Comment = Networking
GenericName = CiscoPackettracer
Exec = / opt / packettracer / packettracer
Icon = / usr / share / icons / packettracer.jpeg
StartupNotify = true
Terminal = false
Type = Application
Use wq! To save and exit vim.
Step 5: Run Packet Tracer
# Sudo packettracer
Well, we have successfully Packet Tracer installed Linux. The mounting steps apply to all Linux distributions based on Debian.
Here, we show how to install Packet Tracer to Linux distributions. I hope you will find your favorite simulator installed Linux method.
