Improvements on the simulator to make corrections easier

I’ve made a couple of improvements on the Educational Network Simulator, this time to make the teacher’s life a little bit easier.

If you enter the simulator with the following URL: you will directly see all the computers’ configured data. That way, if you are correcting an exam or an exercise, you’ll save time as you’ll not need to enter the configuration dialogs.

As for now, DNS servers and HTTP servers do not show their specific data, but everything else can be directly seen.

If you are making custom modifications, you have to initialize the simulator with the parameter:

NetworkSimulator.verbose = true;
