Experimental teaching is of great importance in computer networking. In this paper, we analyze the problems encountered in real-world laboratory, and propose a Web based computer networking virtual laboratory to facilitate learning and teaching in the education of computer networking. The design and implementation of such a system are analyzed in detail. Our experiences of using it in computer network teaching show that this laboratory enables students to share resources of physical and virtual equipments and understand the knowledge more clearly. Finally, the paper concludes with feedbacks in teaching and discusses future developments.
