The AutoNetkit visualization phase allows you to see how the nodes interact in terms of routing protocol connectivity, autonomous system (AS) numbers, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) area, and so on. Before entering the AutoNetkit visualization phase, you must have designed the topology and generated the node configurations using parameters defined in AutoNetkit.
AutoNetkit visualization is available before a simulation is launched. A valid Cisco Modeling Labs license is not required to run AutoNetkit visualization. AutoNetkit visualization is only viewable on an external Web browser; internal Web browsers are not supported.
The following figure shows an overview of the AutoNetkit Visualization phase as it appears in a browser window.
The following figure shows how the visualization compares to the topology design.
