 Post subject: Terminal Screen disappears
PostPosted: Tue Jun 15, 2010 11:37 pm 
I installed GNS3 and was able to get everything to work however it doesn't change the default terminal application. It always reverts to (Putty, windows, included with GNS3).

How can I fix this?

When you edit the preferences, your must click the Use button (to the right) rather than just OK. This will copy one of the pre-configured command strings into the Terminal Command setting.

When you next go to the settings page, the drop-down list will still be showing Putty (Windows, included with GNS3) as the Preconfigured terminal commands - but that is not the important thing, you have to look at the Terminal Command. In your case it should say:

/usr/bin/osascript -e 'tell application "terminal" to do script with command "telnet %h %p ; exit"'

You might want to try iTerm - I find it much better than Terminal, for 2 reasons:
1. When I click on the Telnet to all IOS button, it opens each session in a new tab rather than a new window
2. I can hit command+shift+i and then everything I type goes to every tab, so when I open up my lab with 15 routers, I can hit command+shift+i, type:
show ip route
show ip protocol
show ip int br

and have the commands directed to ALL 15 routers. (Also dangerous if you type config t then no router ospf 1, or change the ip address of fa0/0 something like that)

Well, I am not having that same issues but along those lines. I took your advice and I am using iTerm instead of Terminal but none of my iTerm sessions will connect to the routers. I get the following error for each router I try to console into.

Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
