 Post subject: Virtual Lab using GNS3 and VirtualBox
PostPosted: Mon Oct 04, 2010 3:30 am 
I've written this tutorial to show how virtual hosts can be added to GNS3 using VirtualBox, creating a nicely working server-client network. GNS3 is very powerful, and I chose VirtualBox since it's free, and hence easily accessible to most people.
It's a pdf, so I've posted it on scribd due to the current security fears. If for whatever reason you can't access that, you can check out the direct download link.

This is my first tutorial, so if any part is difficult to understand, please do tell me.

Looks good, I'll probably post it on gns3.net.

Thanks!

That would be wonderful! GNS3 is awesome, I've used it to clear both CCNA and RHCE, and I hope others can do the same! Thanks a lot!

Hi guys!

I'm a newbie in GNS3 and I'm going to use it in my course project in the university. I watched video tutorials and read this article (it's realy good, thanks!) and the following question came to my mind: is there some other way to connect VirtualBox devices with the GNS3 network? I find it not quite convenient to create a new host-only ethernet adapter on my host machine for every network interface on a VM. For example, in case I want to create 10 VMs with 3 interfaces on each one, I will have to create 30 host-only ethernet adapters on my host Windows 8 laptop. If it is the only way to link VBox with GNS3, I'm afraid I will have to prefer VirtualBox internal network to GNS3 :(

Thanks in advance for answer!

BR, Evgeny
