Cisco L2 L3 IOU Rack V5 (newer version from Cisco L2 L3 IOU Rack V3)

I was using Cisco L2 L3 IOU Rack V3 from flyxj for quite a while. Recently found Cisco L2 L3 IOU Rack V5. Not much difference except more devices in it for more complicated topology.

1. Vmware 10 workstation Configuration:

a. Create a custom linux vm with an existing virtual disk in your download file.

2. After vm created, launch this vm. Here are some screenshots:

3. Change eth0 IP address at /etc/network/interfaces

4. Change Login Banner at /etc/issue and /etc/motd

  1. Where can you download the V5 from?

  2. Google "Cisco L2 L3 IOU Rack V5", you will find lots of places to download it. Sorry I cannot provide the link here.

  3. To unblock Internet also include activities that will help one to protect their identity.
    VPN actually will not provide you some extra ordinary solution for the data sharing over the other available broad band
    wireless network available in the market. So, where do we can not
    find better ways to make VPN access Internal network
    workstations can not only normal, but also smooth access to Internet
    network it.
