hi all

in GNS3, is it possible to change the interfaces names and put them in the same sequence:

for example instead of fas 0/1 fas 0/2 fas 1/0 fas 1/1
make them as fas 0/1 fas 0/2 fas 0/3 fas 0/4 and so on

thanks,

Hi,

I think that it doesn't make any sense, since it's different cards and slots, and the fa x/y, it's the card int slot x, connector y in that card.

In real life equipments, you can't change the interface name also.

Regards.

GNS3 emulates REAL equipment, and uses the interface names that Cisco uses on that equipment.

And Cisco is NOT going to change the way it names its interfaces for you!

So you'll just have to get used to the interface names as they are in the real world. Which is NOT a bad thing to know anyway.

BTW - you might find this post interesting too

thanks guys

the only thing I am thinking about is when you copy and paste the initial configs of a Lab, it will not be pasted since the interfaces names are not the same.

for example, the IOU does not read fas 0/1 - 0/24

Just like in the real world!!!!


However: If you stick with c3725/c3745/c2621XM - you can least know that configs that use f0/0 f0/1 s0/0 and s0/1 can be made to work on each platform. That's why I used the c3725 as the base for the GNS3 WorkBench exercises
