Just for the record. I'm not a mac expert. I believe I have installed GNS3 and configured it.. well for the most part right.

I load the software. No problem. I drag a router on to the topology, and can start it . It turns green. But if I try to start a console port whatever port it uses it says it connection refused. The port numbers increase each time.

I have configured dynamics, and clicked the test button it says it works.
I have also tested the IOS and can see the IOS boot and to into setup.

It seems like I must be missing something fundamental, am I just suppose to install GNS3 are from reading it. It looked like it contained everything.

I know there aren't many details here any help you can provide would be appreciated, I'm trying to work on a certification on cbtnuggets this not working is gumming up the works.


it seems to all work if I do this every time I add a device.
Add the router to the topology, configure the slots etc.
Start it (the new router). (it turns green)
Save the topology (if I try and console in here it says connection refused)
Close and reopen GNS3, load the topology
Console in everything seems to work. so far.
