Learn cisco router with dynamips, know my router

Doh, additional stuff needed to run cisco router that just arrived in the lab. Its Cisco router 2801 series. Before handling it in “real world” I must know it first via cyber world :-)

I think I must know the features, googling it, resulted this link :

Interactive Model of the Cisco 2801 Integrated Services Router

Product Spesifications

Key Features of the Cisco 2801 Integrated Services Router

Models comparison

Wow, frankly I no nothing around this stuff, but thats the challenge :-)

From zero to one.

With 2801 IOS in my hand, ready to explore!


Ok, start learning :
1. I copy cisco 2801 to C:\Program Files\Dynamips\images


2. Edit simple1 file in C:\Program Files\Dynamips\sample_labs\simple1 into this :

# Simple lab


[[router R1]]
image = \Program Files\Dynamips\images\c2801-spservicesk9-mz.123-11.T10.bin
ram = 96
f0/0 = R1 e1/1

3. Start dynampis server by double click the shortcut


4. Run simple1 configuration file

5. Sighh, looks like I doing wrong or 2801 not supported yet

6. Copy 7200 IOS file into images directory and use provided simple1 file

# Simple lab[localhost]

[[router R1]]
image = \Program Files\Dynamips\images\c7200-jk9s-mz.123-7.T.bin
ram = 96
f0/0 = R1 e1/1
# No need to specify an adapter here, it is taken care of
# by the interface specification under Router R1

try again


Seem fine :-)

See some files created in the folder


Knowing configuration, feature and basic requirement is important for newbie like me :-)
