    I was wondering if someone can tell me if using GNS3 would be a good idea for me to use to study for JNCIS-SP or -ENT. I'm using a windows 11 laptop and don't remember why, but had some issues settng up GNS3 when I tried a few years ago. All advice greatly appreciated.

    Hi Ben,

    Having just completed the JNCIP-SP, I would actually recommend EVE-NG or PNETLab. I have not used GNS3 in years so I can't speak totally knowledgeably on that software, but I don't think I could have passed my exam without creating several virtual lab scenarios in EVE-NG. Juniper also provides virtual router images and templates for EVE-NG, so getting started was super easy. Just a heads up, you will need to install EVE-NG directly on bare metal to run the vJunosRouter and vJunosSwitch. The juniper images will not run in a nested (running within VMware or some other type 1 hypervisor) configuration. This link may help you get started.

    I'm looking into that link. Thanks for the help. I am new to most of this and I don't have an extra machine to run ubuntu. I may need some really basic level instructions, because the terms in that article are mostly not familiar to me.

    I am going to look into EV-NG now that I read your reply more carefully. Thanks for the help. David Bombal has a video on how to install it and I'm \following it. My laptop is a windows machine with i5 core, so I may use it or get another machine to designate to this purpose.

    Hi,

    If your laptop have good spec then u can use EVE-NG or PNETLAB and spin up legacy vMX. If u dont have good PC then u can rent cloud lab around USD30 for 3 month that ready for all the image.

    Thanks
