Hello all,

Need your help. When I instal GNS3 on my MAC Book Air, it instals well and runs fine but as soon as I restarts my Laptop or tries to get back to GNS3 after quitting it - I get this error message - Can't start Dynamips on 127.0.0.1 port 7200. This pops up if I try to drag any router for making a topology.

After this I go under preferences under Dynamips tab and when I click on "Test Settings" I get the message "Dynamips Path doesn't exist".

While Dynamips runs fine at first when I instal GNS3. On rebooting laptop or quitting GNS3 and reloading, I get these above mentioned problems. I have tried uninstalling GNS3 and reinstalling it again. Every time I instal it - it works fine but as soon as I reboot the laptop I get same issues.

I have spent lot of time on this but cant work out the problem.

FYI - the path under Executable Path to Dynamips stays at - /Volumes/GNS3/GNS3.app/Contents/Resources/dynamips-0.2.8-RC3-community-OSX.intel64.bin

Any help will be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Gav

Hi,

What do you have in ~/.gns3/gns3.ini ?

Thanks,

Hello Jeremy,

Thank you for replying,

I tried going to gns3 folder and can see gns3.ini file there. But when I try to open using "open command", I get per below:

cpe-203-51-160-223:.gns3 gauravshoor$ open gns3.ini
No application knows how to open /Users/gauravshoor/.gns3/gns3.ini.
cpe-203-51-160-223:.gns3 gauravshoor$

Sorry I am not good with terminal commands on MAC OSX.

Regards,
Gav

That fixed it. Find your for gns3.ini file. Then view it and find the section called

[Dynamips]
hypervisor_path=xyz...

I verified and correctly set my path to Dynamips, xyz to the proper location of the dynamips executable.
