You have been asking for multi-monitor support so that you can view the lab document on one monitor while entering commands in the command-line interface (CLI) on the other monitor. Well, we added that and went one better—we added Telnet mode to the NetSim 8 update. That means that after the update, NetSim 8 will support multiple monitors in two ways:
- You will be able to select the Lab Instructions tab and then click Lab Text > Launch External Viewer to view the lab document in a separate monitor.
- You will be able to perform configurations on devices using Telnet sessions by clicking Tools > Telnet Mode.
These options will give you quite a bit of flexibility when you are studying for Cisco exams by using the labs included with NetSim 8. The update is currently being tested, and we expect to release the first NetSim 8 update very soon. You should receive a notification automatically when it is made available.
