Cisco Packet Tracer 8.2 new features

Packet Tracer 8.2 main new features are :

New OSPF command

Cisco Packet Tracer 8.2 introduces the "show ip ospf interface brief" command which can be used to display which interfaces are enabled into the OSPF process. OSPF configuration is a topic of the 200-301 CCNA certification exam.

The following sample shows the command result on a Cisco ISR 1841 router with two OSPF neighbors. The FA0/1 interface is currently doing the DR-BDR election process on as this interface isconnected to a multiaccess broadcast network segment.

After OSPF adjacency convergence, the router has been elected as Backup Designated Router on the ethernet segment.
