You can also shop for some lower end older gear on Ebay, but just make sure it runs the OS you need.

The latest version of the GNS3 router simulator (www.gns3.net) "claims" to support Juniper Routers.  It is a GNU General Public License software license so it is supported by the user community.  I have been attempting to get it to work but am presently stuck trying to figure out how to configure the JunOS default image.  They have a link under the edit menu for configuring the link for (the Dark Side) IOS but not one for JunOS.  Does anyone know how to configure the default image?

I have made some progress on the GNS3 simulator.  Under edit preferences qemu JunOS there is a tab to add a bootable BIN file (one that would work on an Olive).  Anyone know how I can create a bootable file with a JunOS install package or any other downloadable file?

Thanks for posting the link.  I'm still trying to get this setup too.  I did find this set of video tutorials on the forum but I'm not finished with them or have it working yet.
