The guys over at BrainBump put together a great tutorial on using distributed hypervisors to improve the overall performance and increase the ability to run more routers in your labs. Onto the video intro.. This tutorial will walk you through the process of settting up a distributed GNS3 topology where you can use different external [...]
So it seems that Dead Wait has found a new distribution even smaller than Slack and approximately 30MB in size. He’s dubbed it DynaTaz, based off of the Slitaz linux distro SliTaz is a free micro GNU/Linux distro using BusyBox, a Linux kernel, and GNU free software. The goal of SliTaz is to have a [...]
Seems Deadwait realizes that size matters He’s created anew live CD running the FluxBox lightweight window manager. This livecd does not include GNS3 though . Maybe he will roll this together eventually. As per the post on his blog .. ok this is a very light version of slax with only fluxbox as a [...]
Well .. It seems that someone has put some hard work into creating 3 awesome livecds. He’s (deadwait) built and tested Dynamips/Dynagen and GNS3 in the livecd and USB key formats. They are called DynaSlax, DynaSlaxGNS3 and I call the last DynaSlaxUSB No official docs for the USB or GNS3 version yet. I guess he’s [...]
These are links to videos created by Timw of hacki.at. Timw is a helpful guy on the forums over there and took time to create some videos on configuring VMWare to work with Dynamips/Dynagen & GNS3. In one of the Videos he also teaches you how to setup a simple frame-relay lab. Video 1: VMWare [...]
This is a lab testing VLAN trunking, subinterfaces, router on a stick and 802.1q (DOT1Q) using 3640 routers as routers using the NM-16ESW module. The PCs are also 3640 routers. Routers Used: 3640 w/ NM-16ESW modules IOS: c3640-jk9s-mz.124-16a Feature of Topology: VLAN testing. Router On A Stick / Subinterfaces. Communicating with VLANs VIA the DOT1Q trunking protocol.
