  2. Hi,
    First, let me tell you that Juniper stuff is cool. So if you have played with Linux in the past, you’ll enjoy learning JUNOS and its intricate details.
    I heard that GNS3 does emulate JUNOS. However, I didn’t really take the time to learn how to do it. I used to emulate JUNOS by using Olive.
    In a word, Olive is a compilation of software that run JUNOS on a mini FreeBSD. An interesting post to read is the one made by Himawan on his blog http://brokenpipes.blogspot.com/
    Each Olive emulates a router. So to emulate 3 routers, you’ll need 3 Olives, quite simple :-)
    and be patient!
