.pkt File Extension

Developer: Cisco Systems, Inc.
File type: Packet Tracer Network Simulation Model
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pkt. Files with the file extension .pkt can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pkt files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pkt file?

Files in the PKT format are used to contain certain details and other variation on all simulations or possible scenarios when dealing with network connections. It is primarily used by Packet Tracer, a program primarily developed by Cisco Systems. It was developed as a very powerful teaching and training aid. It is a program that simulates a network and its behavior, giving a chance for students to experience a variety of "what-if" situations first hand including authoring, troubleshooting, collaborations capabilities, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving. Packet Tracer also makes use of physical hardware equipment, providing countless possibilities for users to have the chance to assess, practice and to discover. The PKT file extension can be opened and managed through the Packet Tracer itself. However, if the previous option is not available, certain packet players and analyzers, like Wireshark and Colasoft, may be used to open and manage such files.

how to open a .pkt file?

Launch a .pkt file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .pkt file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .pkt files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .pkt file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .pkt file will open the correct application.

Cisco Packet Tracer

Cisco Packet Tracer is network simulation software facilitates in teaching and learning of complex technology concepts. It provides simulation, authoring, visualization, assessment and collaboration which is the major part of the Networking Academy comprehensive Learning Experience. The Cisco Packet Tracer supplies physical equipment by letting students create a network with unlimited number of devices, that encourages practice, troubleshooting and discovery. The learning environment that is simulation-based helps teach students the skills of decision making, critical thinking, creative thinking, and problem solving methods. The software features a multiuser environment for instructors to teach complex technological concepts, it also supplies real equipment which extends learning opportunities beyond the limitation of physical classrooms, it simulates continuous updates in real-time of network logic and activities, and it supports majority of protocols and technologies which includes Cisco CCNA Discovery, CCNA Exploration, CCNA Security and teach concepts from IT Essentials and Cisco CCNP which are all taught in the Network Academy curricula.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pkt files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pkt. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
