Just configured Ubuntu server to act as my DHCP | DNS server for all the PC’s and wireless devices here at home.
Hmm…perhaps I should post a quick walk through on that for future reference…
How to Install Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 in Ubuntu 13.10
I recently started using my Ubuntu desktop as my primary/main machine for everything with the exception of gaming [for now]. In effort to refresh my memory before taking the CCNA exam, I decided to install Packet Tracer. I then noticed that there wasn’t a clear cut way to do this so here’s a few steps I followed:
- If you happen to be using the 64 bit version of Ubuntu like I am, you will need to install the required 32 bit libraries using the following command:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk
- Next you download your version of Cisco Packet Tracer. It can be attained by following this link.
- In your Downloads folder should now have Cisco-PT-601.bin.
- Now open your terminal, navigate to your downloads directory and run the following commands:
sudo su (will request your password)
mv Cisco-PT-601.bin /usr/bin
chmod +x Cisco-PT-601.bin
./Cisco-PT-601.bin (press enter to run through the instructions then ‘Y’ to accept)
Great! Now Cisco’s Packet Tracer is installed and you’re ready to start practicing your configurations.
