How I can connect to a router that runs in Packet Tracer from the pc that the program (Packet Tracer) runs on it using telnet or Putty or SecureCRT or other shell programs? I use GNS3 but need to work with Cisco 2800 routers so need to use Packet Tracer.


PacketTracer is just an educational software and not an emulator such as GNS3, which is actually an interface for dynagen, visit dynagen for more infomation. PacketTracer can't actually create packets or do anything real, they just 'feel' real for educational proposes. Visit cisco and they will tell you.
