i want to download latest version of cisco packet tracer... can somebody tell me which is the latest version and where i can get it... and FYI i am not able to log in to acaddemy connection as i am not member of it... any help would be appreciated... guys please help me
The net academy is the only place your supposed to be able to get it from. I however, teach CCNA, so I have access to it. I also still have access to my net academy info. It is my understanding that student, teachers, course developers and alumni are able download updated versions of it, but I'm not sure on those specifics.
I deleted my previous reply after reading cisco's account policy...
Coming to your question the latest version of the cisco packet tracer is 6.0.1 but i think that is in the beta testing phase.
For now version 5.3.3 should be more than sufficient.
About the logging in to your academy account, you should talk to your trainer or see if your college is a cisco academy and get the username and password from the concerned person.
If you are still not able to download packet tracer, then the last resort would be google!!
if you are not a member of academy then youa re ot authorized to use packet tracer legally.
you can try purchasing cisco learning labs if budget allows. they are great.
Thanku everyone for taking time and replying... actually i am preparing for the course on my own... i mean self study.. i am not taking any official training for it... so i won't be having any username & password for getting PT frm academy connection... thats why asked here if there is any other solution... anyways thanks for help
