I have flag this Question for off topic But It was rejected. But it looks like a off topic because question does not contain any thing about Network engineering.

I flagged because of this point "

NE is a site for to ask and provide answers about professionally managed networks in a business environment. Your question falls outside the areas our community decided are on topic. Please visit the help center for more details. If you disagree with this closure, please ask on Network Engineering Meta.

But Someone can argue about this point in help center under on topic.

tools used by network professionals

I understand mentioned point in this way. "Packet Tracer is not professional simulator, Although it is professional question looks like a appearance of the packet tracer, It is not involving anything about NE. It could be resolution changes in his computer."

I wasn't the one handling the flags, but no moderator should be needed to label a question off topic. That should be voted on by the community.

I do agree however that you can question if this question belongs on this site. You quoted the appropriate points from the help center, and my personal opinion would be that this question does not really belong here. However, I decided not to vote, since my vote to close would automatically be decisive.

  • I agree that the question doesn't really belong on NE. I closed the flag because there were no close votes, and it did relate to the on-topic lab reason. It is likely to never get an answer, and it will probably be closed later when it gets bumped looking for an answer.
