Activity 11 Think about

Packet Tracer Anywhere does not allow a configuration to be saved (unlike Packet Tracer itself). What are the implications of this if you are building a complicated network of if your computer suddenly fails?

Answer

With a really complicated network you probably wouldn’t want to construct it and configure it in one long session. You would probably want to do it in stages with a break between, and save your work at the end of each session. That is not possible with PT Anywhere. Also, if your computer suddenly failed you would lose any work you had done setting up or configuring the network.
