So, you heard that Cisco is cracking down on the use of IOS emulators by requiring a license registration key to activate the software on every router in its IOS v.15 update.
Angry? Want to stick it to the man? Feel a riot coming on?
Take a deep breath, put down the bricks and baseball bats, and fire up your Internet browser of choice to join the underground movement.
We spotted a Save Dynamips group pop up yesterday on Facebook, started by French networking student Benoit Goncalves in support of Dynamips, a free Cisco IOS emulator that seems to be the target of these IOS licensing changes. As I write this, it only has 18 members but sure looks like they’re rolling out the welcome mat for new recruits.
