And 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
