The frustrations of using Simulators

Just spent the last hour troubleshooting a Boson NetSim Lab that wasn't working. Ended up being the simulator was designed to handle the commands in a certain way otherwise it would break the configuration.

Changing EIGRP network statements form
network 192.168.1.0
network 192.168.100.0

to
network 192.168.0.0 0.0.255.255

If you did
no network 192.168.1.0
no network 192.168.100.0
network 192.168.0.0 0.0.255.255

everything would break, the only way to get it working was to follow their script and do a
no router eigrp 100
router eigrp 100
network 192.168.0.0 0.0.255.255

If anyone is curious it's the Lab: "EIGRP and Wildcard Masks"

    Every now and then I see someone infuriated by the Boson sim but other people swear by it. I really couldn't handle it. I made the mistake of buying the Pearson sim a while back, the labs are so long winded but I forced myself through them since I paid for it.
