    Tools and suggestions to simulate a Windows Network?

    I have been hired as a Network Administrator in a company and have been assigned the job of implementing a Network in a Training Rooms as of Now. I want to simulate my Network before actually implementing it. Can you suggest a good Network Simulation tool for Windows Network?

    Their are lots of Network Simulation tool for Windows Network which you can try , also they have handy tutorials and guides to use . In these tools you can directly simulate Network before implementing , you can not only test but can change network any time at your will .

    Network tools provides following network components in simulations :


    • Routers
    • Switches
    • Connecting cables of different specifications
    • Gateways
    • Ip Phones
    • Protocols to be used in Simulator

    Some Network Simulation tool for Windows are given below....


    • network simulator NS-2
    • Wireshark
    • Packet Tracer
    • N-SIM
    • TLine Sim
    • Cisco Packet Tracer
    • AmbitWire


    I will suggest you to use only following tools which are easy and have good user interface . These software are also easy available for every where .


    1. Cisco Packet Tracer

    hi friend,
    Network simulators try to model the real world networks.The feature is the model can be changed and the corresponding results can be analyzed.

    Commercial Network simulators:
    OPNET, QualNet
    Open source Network simulators :
    NS2, NS3, OMNeT++, SSFNet, J-Sim


    OPNET ,Boson and NS2 aregood Network Simulation tool for Windows Network

    Hello,

    Download Free SPICEWORKS Network Management & Help Desk Software for Admins



    Analysts keep preaching the cloud gospel, and it appears that quite a few CIOs have become believers. What many underestimate is that the connection between earth and heaven, respectively the cloud, can sometimes get clogged when too many believers knock on heavenís door because they all want "to be in" (as Steve Ballmer would express it).

    So, before you leave the solid ground of your LAN to find blissfulness in higher spheres, you might want to simulate what happens when the network connection between your clients and the almighty cloud servers becomes slow. The free portable tool TMnetSim Network Simulatorenables you to simulate a poor or slow network connection in your lab.

    TMnetSim sits between the client and the server and allows only as much network quality as you admit. You can launch the tool either on the client or on the server. It is also possible to run the client and server on the same computer. The configuration for these scenarios is a bit different. The example below explains how you have to set up TMnetSim on the server if you want to test a slow RDP connection.

    First, you have to tell TMnetSim to listen to a free TCP port on the server. I used 3390 for this example. Then, you have to configure the destination to which TMnetSim will forward the packets. Since the Remote Desktop Session Host is on the same machine as TMnetSim in this configuration, you can use 127.0.0.1 as the outbound IP address. The RDP port is 3389 by default, which is why you have to use this as the outbound port .

    To connect the RDP client to the RDS host, you can use the IP address of the server. But instead of connecting to the default RDP port 3389, you have to tell your RDP client to connect to port 3390 (see screenshot below) because this is the port where TMnetSim is waiting for packets to be forwarded to the RDS host.



    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
