Every time I start packettracer, I get prompted for my NetAcad login details. I want to avoid that and have my login information saved. How can it be done?

  • It appears that it's a bug, it's still not fixed in the current version (7.2.2 0418).

  • Can you provide sources where this bug has been reported, and said that it's still not solved?

There is no solution for this issue. The more recent updates for packet tracer too don't address it, even in windows.


The only way I found is to disconnect the internet from the computer every time before launching Packet tracer.

  • This used to work, but it was not "disconnecting from the internet", it was more specifically turning off your network interface. I had to work offline and I had no internet configured at all and I still had to deal with it. When I didnt have internet access I wrote a launch script for it to kill the interface so it could start. This question was years ago, I don't know if today's versions are still like this... and it doubt it was a "bug" or an "issue"...(ps Dear Cisco, I wasn't trying to get over... practicing at work was met with challenges :) ..plus you guys got a lot of money from me)
