Integrating the HP Network Simulator with GNS3

Hello Everyone,

Many have requested a step by step guide on integration between HNS and GNS3. Please find attached a guide for installation and operation of multivendor virtual labs with VirtualBox and GNS3.

 

Many thanks to Nick Channing for putting in the hardwork and effort to create this guide.

 

Regards,
Jay

Re: Integrating the HP Network Simulator with GNS3

Hi, I have tried this with the latest version of GNS3 and it seems to work pretty well, however the console feature does not work, which seems to be because the Simware VMs dont allow console access via COM1, you can connect to the aux port on COM2 but I haven't found a way of getting GNS3 to do that.

This is not a show stopper but it is a bit of a PITA, is there any way to get the Simware VMs to accept console input on COM1?

Hi,

 

After creating your topology, before starting it, you can simply exchange the two com ports. E.g. on Ubuntu is should work with the vboxmanage command.

vboxmanage modifyvm <VMname> --uart1 0x02f8 3 --uart2 0x03f8 4

 

That shoudl make the console on port 1 usable by GNS3.

Re: Integrating the HP Network Simulator with GNS3

Can you explain how to do it in Windows?

Do you mean switch Port 1 and Port 2 information in virtualbox?
