This section describes the
functionality of the Network Designer module. Screen-shot of
the Network Designer is given below:
Configuration File: To Open an existing network (that
was designed and saved earlier). Navigate to appropriate
directory (default is "User" directory), and
select the desired configuration file. Click the
"Open" button in the dialog box to start working
on the network diagram.
Configuration: After completing the network design, you
need to save it. For this purpose, select the "Save
Configuration". Note that the "saved file"
and "exported file" have different file extensions
and not the same. A saved file can only be opened and used
in the network designer. An exported file can only be used
by the network simulator.
Configuration: Once the network design part is
completed, the network diagram along with the configured
data (such as host name, ip address, and mask addresses) can
be exported for use with the simulator. We can open this
Exported file in the network simulator and configure it
further according to the requirement.
& Exit: Use this option to exit the designer without
saving any changes.
