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

64-bit systems

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 PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz to continue with the installation. For your convenience, the sha1sum of this file is provided below.

$ sha1sum PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz
bbc776e62725ac714c228e87e239dda4dfd9449c  PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz

Copy this file to your working directory with the same name and continue the installation normally. 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. The required file may change in the future, based on the version of PacketTracer available at that time. At the time of writing, the file is named PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz.

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.
