Lab Access Instructions


This lab runs on a virtualised environment for Cisco IOS called “Dynamips”.

To join the network which the lab environment is on, associate your laptop with the wireless network called IPv6. The password for this network is 8888888888 - this is ten times the number 8.

The method of access to each virtual router is via Telnet to a specific port on the IP of the machine that runs the virtualization platform. If you don't have “telnet” installed on your laptop (becoming very common on modern operating systems), check the agenda page for links to a client you can use.

To access the lab, use telnet to connect to the host on the specified port, for example:

$ telnet 2012

Login instructions

After executing the telnet command, you will see something like the following:

Connected to 
Escape character is '^]'. 
Connected to Dynamips VM "P2" (ID 8, type c7200) - Console port

Press ENTER at this point. Then, if you see this question:

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:

Answer “no”.

The router will show some initialization routines, and finally, you will see the default prompt:


You can then go into privileged mode:

Router> enable 

And then enter configuration mode:

Router# configure terminal

And you are ready to start entering configuration statements. When you are done, exit configuration mode by typing *end* or pressing *ctrl-Z* and save your changes:

Router(config)# end
Router# write memory
