Cisco Packet Tracer is a powerful network simulation program that allows students to experiment with network behavior and ask “what if” questions. As an integral part of the Networking Academy comprehensive learning experience, Packet Tracer provides simulation, visualization, authoring, assessment, and collaboration capabilities and facilitates the teaching and learning of complex technology concepts.

Installation

32-bit systems

Tango-edit-cut.pngThis section is being considered for removal.Tango-edit-cut.png

Reason: 32-bit was deprecated by Cisco with version 7.1.1. (Discuss in Talk:PacketTracer#)

See the AUR article for important usage topics. For now, only download and extract the tarball for packettracerAUR from the AUR

You will need to have access to the file Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 for Linux (with tutorials) to continue with the installation. For your convenience, the sha1sum and md5sum of this file is provided below.

$ sha1sum Cisco\ Packet\ Tracer\ 6.0.1\ for\ Linux\ \(with\ tutorials\)
81f74633115fab6bd1cb699f203a5a5375830c30  Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 for Linux (with tutorials)
$ md5sum Cisco\ Packet\ Tracer\ 6.0.1\ for\ Linux\ \(with\ tutorials\)
6d623bc0761cbb6e3cdccb3c0e0ec70b  Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 for Linux (with tutorials)

Copy this file to your working directory, maintaining the name. The PKGBUILD file found in the earlier tarball will require this archive. It is not provided in the tarball itself for ethical and legal reasons. This file requirement may change in the future, based on the version of packet tracer available at that time. At the time of writing, the proper file name is Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 for Linux (with tutorials).

After you have copied the file to the working directory (the directory you extracted the tarball to), you may now continue installation normally.

Finally, please read the EULA at /usr/share/licenses/packettracer/eula.txt and uninstall if you do not agree. If you agree, the program can be found under most menu systems in the Internet category.

Assessment environment check

The Cisco Packet Tracer-based Assessment Environment Check is used to confirm that students can start packet tracer activities for assessments such as practice and final exams. It is critical that you have a working version of Java installed. Perform the check at this page to confirm whether or not this ability is functional.

Video supplements

You may use these videos as supplements to the installation to either ease or visualize the installation process.
