Few Enhancements  

Saturday, August 30, 2008

Credit goes to Mike fuszner @ gns3 for the following suggestions .....

TO our gns3 we can do few more enhancements to make ourself more comfortable ... first thing it to ....change the telnet client ... you can have either putty or teraterm both are good to have i prefer putty ....

PuTTY: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
TeraTerm: http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA002416/teraterm.html

Just download the terminal program you prefer and install it on your computer. Inside GNS3, choose Preferences under the Edit menu. Choose General in the left pane, and the change the Terminal command box to read:
For PuTTY: c:\putty\putty.exe -telnet %h %p
For TeraTerm: c:\ TTERMPRO\ttssh.exe %h %p /W=%d /T=1

so we are done with this ....

If you are using a topology that opens several console windows, it becomes a bit of a challenge switching from one device to another. You may consolidate all of these windows into one application where the windows are located under tabs. There are several ways to do this, but the program I like is called WinTabber. It’s another free download at the following site:

after the download click on wintabber and go to file ---> add tab ---> add the tabs of your choice they all would be under one roof ...
