This video shows you how to run Packet Tracer 7.2.2, which allows you to prepare for Cisco exams on Apple Mac OS X operating systems.
How to Use Packet Tracer in Mac
Cisco Packet Tracer is one of the best tools to examine networks and communications. With this tool, they can simulate networks through various components, wired and others. This is to enable students to understand the behavior of networks through structuring, routing, protocols, and others.
Older versions of Packet Tracer did not support the Mac operating systems. This time, Networking Academy released version 7.2 for an easier installation of software on macOS systems.
Since this Cisco simulator software previously only supported Windows and Linux operating systems, Wine and PlayOnMac were widely used to install on macOS.
Now you can easily setup Packet Tracer on your Apple computer without the need for additional software!
