SolarWinds: free network config generator

A few days ago I received a notification from SolarWinds that they released a free Network Config Generator software and I was invited to download and test it.

I give it a try and even if I’m more used to the old plain text files with configuration template, this software was a pleasant surprise. I recommend it especially for those how are new in business and are beginners with Cisco devices. This software can get you out from some troubles when you are configuring Cisco platforms.

I had the idea to make a video tutorial about how to use it, but then I found the 2 videos below created by SolarWinds which give you an overview about this software and then a short how-to use it:
