What is a PKSZ file?

A PKSZ file is a Tutored Activity file for a practice session created with Cisco Packet Tracer (version 8.1 or later) an interactive network systems learning tool. It stores instructions for managing various network setups similar to .PKA files and includes hints that a user can access if they need help.

More Information

Cisco Packet Tracer is an application that provides a learning environment for students to learn networking, cybersecurity, and IoT skills. People commonly use the software for distance learning, work planning, and professional training.

Before version 8.1 of Packet Tracer, the application saved instructions for users as Packet Tracer Activity (PKA) files. However, with the release of 8.1, Cisco introduced Packet Tracer Tutored Activities (PTTA), a type of activity that offers hints to users if they want them. Cisco introduced the Packet Tracer Tutored Activity (PKSZ) file format to support more dynamic activities, which include instructions and hints.
