    I used ARIS for software integration designs. I called the sales rep up and they gave me a free trial, still using it. Evidently they don't disable it once you get it installed. I even receive updates.

    Gliffy is one similar to Lucidchart I use for quick, easy drawings.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    I used the above 2 whilst writing my university dissertation, for actual networking I'd use Visio or EDraw Max

    I have tried to use draw.io, Giffy, and lucid chart. They are not really working in conjunction with I was looking for. I had Visio but since we moved buildings, they decided to take the labels off of our old workstations and re-image them. Been wasting the past 2 hours of my morning hunting for a network diagram software, lol, most of the times, it's due to incompetent individuals in the IT industry that allow for problems like these.

    I am now going to use GSN3 for a few weeks until we order Visio again, even though it's a simulator. I wonder if anyone has used GSN3 to set up network diagrams or is that a bit off?

    I use DIA, and it has worked pretty well for me. Available on Linux, Mac, and that other popular OS:
