Just a clarification ... What can be "linked" or used as part of GNS3 are IOL (IOS on Linux) images NOT IOU (IOS on Unix). IOU runs only on Sun Sparc (if I remember correctly) . IOL runs on on Linux (Ubuntu, for example) . Perhaps it is important to note that this feature (IOU/IOL) will NOT likely run under GNS MAC or Windows versions ...

Apologies if this was discussed before.

Hi,

We use IOU as a generic name. I think IOU is the original (official?) name and IOL has been used later on forums to differentiate between Linux and Sparc images.

But since you are pointing that out, who would like we use IOL / IOS on Linux in GNS3 instead of IOU / IOS on UNIX? This would just be cosmetic change in the preferences dialog.

This was my thought as well (to use IOU/IOL description). As you said, this is just a cosmetic stuff, but can be confusing. Am I right assuming that this feature will NOT work under Windos/MAC implementation of GNS3 ? If so, documentation must be clear about it.

Yep you are right. This is why users have to run a Linux VM in order to use IOL on these platforms.
