Just because I like to see the release happening before the end of the month, here is a VM http://bit.ly/1rE8jiH. OVA file, only 134MB download, everything (except IOU, of course) is included. Created in VirtualBox; I have not tried it in VmWare, but I do not see a reason it should not work.


This is helping me a lot, thank you! I have the VM running and the size is great. How have you squeezed Debian so much? Also, that would be great if you are able to post some instructions (for creating new VMs in the future) or merge your work to the preseed file posted above. Of course this isn't urgent, I really appreciate your help.

Edit: There are 2 users - rrot and gns3, the passwords for both are the same "cisco"


I quickly guessed the password before you updated your post ;)

Thanks again.

EDIT: I've updated the requirements a bit (see first post).

The new, updated VM according to the new requirements: http://bit.ly/OZ6uOk
Users: root:cisco
gns3:cisco
the VM also has openssh installed for the ease of uploading and downloading files from it.

A disclaimer: there were no security precautions made while creating this VM. There are no automatic security updates in the current Debian testing, AFAIK. Consider this VM to be completely un-secure and do not expose it to the outside world.

I hadn't checked this thread lately, until just today. Thanks for doing this revs. I'm really glad you jumped in here!

It's just a linux VM at this point. IOU and gns3 are not integrated with it right now. When it's all packaged together and released, I imagine it will not be very complicated at all to use. GNS3 will most likely "talk" to the linux VM without you needing to interact with it. Also worth mentioning, just as you need to get your own copy of cisco IOS for the routers, you'll need to provide your own copy of Cisco IOU.

Jeremy, with the ER out, where do you want to take the development of the VM to? BTW, I can easily reduce the size of the current OVA file by 10MB. The trick is to use "zerofree" and "VBoxManage modifyhd --compact" commands before creating an OVA file

@revs

We can start a new topic in the new early release section: new-gns3-early-releases-f22.html if you want.

Thanks for the tip :)

I've re-created your VM in ESXi, it should work under VmWare now. For some reason VirtualBox while exporting the VM inserts itself as a necessary hardware. The new VM works both under ESXi, and VirtualBox. New link : [url]bit.ly/1s4SSk2[/url]

Edit:
Jeremy, I am OK with you updating the first post in this thread with new requirements, whenever you think they are necessary. If it is easier for you to keep a separate thread, I am OK with that too.

Updated VM with the requirements from April 1: the link has been removed. see he next page

Note: this VM is of interest to the developers only, it does not contain pieces for the end-users
