THIS PROCEDURE MADE UP WITHIN MULTIPLE PARTS:

1. Directory structure 2. GNS3 configurations
3. Configure Hypervisor
4. Edit Dynamips on the client
5. Edit Dynamips on the Server
6. Start Dynamips on SVR and Client
7. Start GNS3 and create simple topology





PART 1: DIRECTORY STRUCTURES
Step 1: Directory to work with… etc.
let’s create some directories in the server, remote PC and call it “GNS3”
Server: C:\GNS3 and remote pc(s): C:\GNS3
Step 2: Image directory… etc.
Server: C:\GNS3\images\ and remote pc(s): C:\GNS3\images\
Copy all the images you are planning use to both directories
Step 3: Folder for “work area” … etc.
Server: C:\GNS3\workarea\ and remote pc(s): C:\GNS3\workarea\
Step 4: Folder for router initial configurations… etc.
Server: C:\GNS3\inital_config\ and remote pc(s): C:\GNS3\inital_config\
Step 5: Folder for Dynamips work area… etc.
Server: C:\GNS3\workarea\dynamips-work-dir\ and remote pc(s): C:\GNS3\workarea\dynamips-work-dir\
Step 6: Folder for your project directory… etc.
Server: C:\GNS3\workarea\project-dir\ and remote pc(s): C:\GNS3\workarea\project-dir\
Step 7: Folder for capture directory… etc.
Server: C:\GNS3\workarea\wireshark\ and remote pc(s): C:\GNS3\workarea\wireshark\
Your directory should look like this or what is best works for you…

PART 4: EDIT DYNAMIPS FILE ON THE CLIENT
Step 1: Remote or login the remote PC and Start Run type “C:\Program Files\GNS3\”
Find “dynamips-start.cmd” edit with your favorite editor;
Change line five where it says 7200 to 7220

Recommend creating a shortcut for “dynamips-start.cmd” to on your desktop, because your going to use this quite frequently because everything
stop the router, you need to shutdown and restart it
