    I finished my CCNP and have opened my lab to the public. I have started a free Cisco Catalyst Switch Lab of 4 switches. No reservations required. Just logon:

    telnet 72.205.54.70 49001
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49002
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49003
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49004

    For network diagram and updates, go to labswitch.blogspot.com .
    Let me know if you have any questions or problems.

    I might add a 5th switch, but trying to keep it simple.

    Thank you!

    Hiya, thanks for this, im trying to connect using teraterm by telnet but its not working.

    If I try to use SSH it wants log on details. Id like to use these switches. Am I doing something wrong?

    cheers mate

    A nice reciprocal link would look good on your blog, you know for the exchange in traffic from CertForums. :)

    Hi Millsie,

    SSH won't work. You have to use telnet and set the port to a number from 49001 to 49004.

    Great stuff, i just dived on and had a play, thank you for this offering, are there any plans to throw a couple of old routers on there to make a fully comprehensive Cisco lab?

    That's a good question. I might, but it depends. Obviously, GNS3 covers routing, and these switches can do routing, too. I will check how low my electric bill is, I would have to get another table, etc.

    I was actually thinking of a used Cat 4503 the other night, too.

    Just an update, a couple more switches have been added to the lab.

    I also have a couple of routers, 2621's, that might be added in the future. I'm studying a way of how to best use them.

    IP has remained the same:

    telnet 72.205.54.70 49001
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49002
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49003
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49004
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49005
    telnet 72.205.54.70 49006

    2 routers have been added to the lab. There is now a tunnel to a lab site in Bucharest.

    If you have some Cisco routers and switches you want to tunnel to my lab, please contact me. Thanks!
