    This is really great!! Thanks INE!!

    Tip: Build you own frame-switch in BB2. (just configure extra serials in BB2 and configure a FR-switch, link all routers to BB2 instead of the dynagen FR-switch)
    The FR-switch in Dynamips is not correct. PVCs always stay up.

    Hi, great to see that the Dynamips have been added to anyone who purchased the ordinary Workbooks.

    However, I would be greatful if anyone could answer this, Can Dynamips/Dynagen work with Windows 7??? I only seem to be able to get one instance of Dynamips working at a time instead of the 2 we expect!?

    If not I might have to put them into a VM environment!?

    Thanks Ian.

    Hello Ian Finlayson,

    I have not tried to run it on win 7 as “physical” pc or server but I use vmware ESX server and I am running windows 7 64 bit on it works just fine…. but remember to turn off user control in Win 7 and reload it…. BEFORE installing the GNS or You may need gns reinstall…

    vmware virtualization and GNS SUCKS !!!!!!! :)
    no more huge equipment and lab racks :) everything in one small box :)

    hope this helps….

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the feedback!!
    I am sure if you can get it working with WIN 7 64bit in a VM environment, it should work fine on a “Physical” also!?

    I will try turn off User Control and see if that makes a difference?

    Thanks again…

    I can believe you guys intend to spoil my Christmas by reminding me about the lab exam in March…

    Christmas is the birthday of Christ but now I have to be punching keys on my PC…

  13. Tom says:

    Hi again Ian,

    I am sure it will, just try it…

    Can you please clarify which NET file is to be used with the new dynamips v5 configuration. I have downloaded the latest which do not match up with the labs…any help would be most appreciated. As an example if you check the configs for R5 the reference S0/0 and 0/1 being used where the labs and diagrams specify s1/0 and 1/1.
    s0/0 = FR0 6
    s0/1 = R4 s0/1
    f0/0 = SW1 f1/5
    f0/1 = SW3 f1/5

    I could certainly rebuild these myself given the intended mappings…just not sure what the intention was.

    Thanks in advance as usual you guys are awesome!

    • Hi bmac!

      Have not had time to try Lab 1 yet – perhaps there will be an opportunity over the holidays. I know that some issues were discussed and resolved by students on the IEOC.COM

      Be sure to check it out.
