In the good old days of Dynamips, one could enter Dynagen commands, change topologies and networks using a command API.

Today this is no longer the case.
1. Our GNS3 GUI, while has a dynagen terminal, disallows access to it from a remote computer
2. many commands do not work from terminal (starting a vbox VM doesn't work from dynagen)

Possible solution is to provide a TCP-based access to dynagen layer, in a similar fashion to our Qemuwrapper to dynagen API.
Maybe other options also exist?

Hi,

The architecture of GNS3 is changing with the new version. There will be a unique GNS3 server unifying all hypervisors (Wrappers and Dynamips). This server will be controlled by an API. This API will be used by the GNS3 GUI but could also be used by other clients, like a web or a command line one. However we will concentrate on the GUI first.
