GNS3 WorkBench v8.7 is ready for download


It has taken a while, but I’ve finally got all the files for GNS3 WorkBench v8.7 uploaded to sourceforge.

ICND1ReadinessTestTopologyAnd the Windows version (and OS X version) is better than ever. You can now enjoy all the exercises and labs of GNS3 WorkBench without having to download a whole Virtual Machine!   Just use the link to the v8.7_Windows_OSX version to download a zip file that you can add to your existing GNS3 install – including the new awesome ICND1 Readiness Test

Like v8.6, there are three versions to choose from:

v8.7_Windows_OSX: just the Labs and Exercises that make up GNS3 WorkBench in OS independent format
v8.7_Appliance: a “ready made” Virtual Machine split into two files (~2G) or twenty-three smaller files (all < 1G)
v8.7: a collection of script files and compressed images to do a “do it yourself” install on your existing Linux Mint 17.0 or Ubuntu 14.04 machine

The major difference between v8.6 and v8.7 is the addition of the challenging ICND1 Readiness Test, as well as updating the instructions for all labs to relate more closely to the “snapshot” idea. The script file that updates your topology files if you have a different IOS image to the recommended version has also been updated.

Yours to enjoy

    The v8.7_Windows_OSX version asks for a password when extracting the config and startup.vpc files. What is the password for the v8.7_Windows_OSX version? Thanks

    • There is no password. If it is asking for a password I expect you have a corrupted download. I have just double checked on OS X and Windows 8.1

      Double check that the download you have has the correct checksum:
      It should be d2d21c662e6bd588ff38934446f53e47

      To check the checksum on OS X, issue the command

       md5 ExtractToUserGNS3Folder.zip 
      MD5 (ExtractToUserGNS3Folder.zip) = d2d21c662e6bd588ff38934446f53e47

      On windows, there is a free md5 checksum utility at http://www.winmd5.com/
