[--- Update to v4 here : topic5736.html
I would like to propose this contribution : a Live CD with a pre-installed GNS3 environment and other things.
Here is a description :
Raizo, Live (DVD or USB) Debian used by the CFA (a training centre) UTEC in Seine et Marne in France ( http://www.utec-tic.org
) during the course of networking and Linux administration. It contains GNS3 VBE (v0.8.1). GNS3 is provided without any IOS but with 18 virtual machines (Only their names differ).
Raizo includes Wireshark, NmapSi4, DHCP server, FTP server, TFTP server and SSH server. No service is starting automatically and the interface and documentation are mostly in French.
The choice of the packages installed on the virtual machine is strongly inspired by NetKit.
The scripts (whoses names start by "fast-" ) have been added :
On Raizo and the VMs
fast-ip : address IP configuration.
fast-dhcp : DHCP server configuration
fast-copy and fast-paste : enable copy and paste text between the different VMs and Raizo
fast-syslog : display with colors the 40 lasts lines of the file /var/log/syslog
Only on the VMs
fast-rename : rename the system
fast-dns : DNS server configuration
(fast-rename, fast-dhcp and fast-dns used together enable to set up a dynamic DNS)
fast-rip : RIPv2 router configuration
Only on Raizo
fast-backup-gns3 : backup of a GNS3 project with the virtual machine
fast-restore-gns3 : retrieve of a GNS3 project which was backed up with fast-backup-gns3
fast-reset-vbox : reset the virtual machine from the beginning
fast-clean-crash-gns3 : kill all the processes used by gns3-vbe (in case of crash for example).
fast-mountUSB : mount the USB key in the directory /media/usb0
fast-startup : mount automatically USB key in /media/usb0 and process the script /media/usb0/raizo.startup
fast-memo : display some memos in french
When you start the VMs, they run automatically the file /home/user/.VMRaizo/VMRaizo.startup in Raizo
Like Netkit, the VM have also access to the user directory via /hosthome directory.
syntax highlighting for the config file has been created and added to nano.
minicom is configured to connect to serial port devices.
minicomUSB (or « minicom USB ») enable to use a USB adaptator.
