Again, to give you the inputs, I must have complete vision and complete understanding of topology generator, which unfortunately I don't.
The sliders are just guidelines, not a specification.

You can write your vision here, as it is surely more complete, and then we can discuss it in some more depth. (in case of GNS3 VirtualBox Edition, I wrote my proposed design goals during Alpha1 stage, but no one bothered to discuss and ask questions, so I had to complete the design concept myself plus implement it).

Hi,
No worries. I have some draft generation code for GNS3 currently. I'll return to it when I get a chance in the next few months.
At this stage I will generate the appropriate lab and config files externally using AutoNetkit, which the user can manually import into GNS3 and run the lab.
In the future we could look at wrapping AutoNetkit inside GNS3, so the user doesn't have to use an external tool, but externally is probably a good simple first step.

Thanks
Simon

Hello,

This is exactly what I am trying to do - use Autonetkit, a great piece of gear, to automatically generate a topology that I can then import and run in GNS3, another great piece of gear. Did perhaps something come out of this discussion? I don't mean to sound needy, just don't want to reinvent the wheel if there's a perfectly good one to be used.

Nope, nothing came out.
The leader of AutoNetKit didn't work with GNS3 team to integrate the two products.

It will require developers a deep understanding of *both* products of us to achieve a good combined product.

Hello,

So far we haven't done anything to wrap AutoNetkit inside GNS3, we are still exploring all the existing solutions for auto config generation and we also have other priorities before we can start anything. We won't be able to start before a few months at least, so please feel free to try things and give your input.

Thanks!
