Which is a great thing, but license-way quite useless, as it still
means that you will have to have an official license for each IOS you
run, and as IOS comes with a box, you would either be able to run your
real 7200, or the simulated one. Or does anyone know where you can get
IOS-only licenses so that you can run it on simulators? Same goes for
the Vendor J simulation/training thing that doesn't exist. When  you
are on the cheap and do not want to break any laws / want-vendor-x-
to-ignore-you-for-the-rest-of-your-life then you better play it on the
safe side and get proper licensing.

At a certain point you will be more than comfortable with the cli
anyway and configuring ethernet ports. There are afaik not many
options to configure other types of ports on simulated hardware /
quagga's though.
