    Have you ever used Virtual Labs to assist with your training
    doesnt matter for what cert, or even for just 'playing', have you used any and if so which ones?

    Microsoft's got some online virtual sandbox labs that I've used. Pretty cool setup!

    Amazingly, I haven't yet used Boson's NetSim product. At some point, I'm sure I will... but I've got a lab full of real routers that I can access here in the office. :)

    EDIT: I've used VMWare and VirtualPC... thought you meant actual virtual labs, not just virtual OSes. :)

    I use VMware Workstation 5.5...primarily for writing books at this point. In just about all my writing, I have to produce a bunch of "labs" for the book and working on the platform in question in a virtual environment is a must.

    I've used some, but mostly just to play around and see how they compare to the real thing. As for a lab, I have access to multiple racks (mostly Cisco) so that's where I really have some fun :)

    VMWare server and workstation and now also with ESX. Played around a little with Virtual PC and server from MS but didn't like them much.

    I have used most of them. As a trainer I need to know what a student can and cannot do and what is in it.
