    Default Using GNS3

    What in this track can be simulated with GNS3 and what has to be the real equipment? I'd like to know in order to estimate costs for a lab.

    Also, is there anyone here who only obtained an NP-Security without an NP, or got the NP-S first?

    Routers (using GNS3 or IOU), switches (using IOU) and IPS can all be simulated. Others may be able to be simulated as well, those are the ones I know are. I'm going to get started on this soon myself, so I haven't looked too closely at what devices are testable yet.

    Hey, I am going for CCNP Sec this year, without the "regular" CCNP (obtained CCNA and CCNA Sec so far). Also, I regularly use GNS3 for my CCNP Sec labs, even though I have some hardware available (ASA 5510)

    Look like you're a little ahead of me since you already have your CCNA Sec. I'm going to try and knock out all five tests this year. Time to buckle down.

    Simulating an old school ASA is easy in GNS3. As for the next gen firewall, you made need some real equipment for that. One of the tests I believe is all IOS security so you could use GNS3 for that. However, for SISAS, you'll need a copy of Cisco ISE (The older one is available if you have a login). You'll need to figure out how to integrate it into your virtual or physical routing/switching environment. Also remember the free version of ISE is a trial, so running it in a VM and reinstalling would be wise (And it'd give you multiple installation experiences).

    ISE 1.2 which is enough for SISAS exam can be run in a VM in let's say VMware Workstation, and connect it to a GNS3 setup running on your host
