    Network Design Program


    Hi,

    Anyone know of a free (or free trial) program that lets you design pretty complicated network schematics.

    Just needs little icons for a switch, node, workstation, printer, server, etc.

    Thanks,
    computer

    network notepad on that page.
    you have to sign up for a free account, but this page and several others at this site might have what you need.

    most everything at the techrepublic site is free, and they have some very good stuff. but you have to join, which i did, with a fake name, and email, which i can check.

    Dia is very useful for that kinda stuff.. in fact I'm such an expert, that I did an awfully good screenshot for you here It's open source.. in fact I think it even comes with an outofthebox redhat install.

    is that what you mean?
