Dear all,

Who can help me out? I use GNS ALPHA-6 on a WINDOWS 7 Professional 64x operating in the DUTCH language.
I've configured everything correctly I believe.
I've entered the path where my iourc.txt file can be found in GNS3:
C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\GNS3\license\iourc.txt

I've uploaded my image to my server and specified the path also in GNS3:
/home/gns3/Documents/GNS3/images/i86bi_linux-adventerprisek9-m-15.2.2.15T.bin

I even went to this site: http://wwwin-enged.cisco.com/etools/iou ... et_key.cgi
Where I generated my license and replaced the zero's with the license I generated legally in the iourc.txt file. In the format seen in the example below.
[license]
hostid = 00000000;

Below is my hostid en hostname I used to generate my license-key. Is found is easy by just logging in to you VM en enter "hostname" en "hostid" and the following was printed on my screen.
hostid = 00000000
hostname = gns3-iouvm
I used the iourc.txt file that was recently uploaded here. Also didn't work. Then I used my own license I still had the same error as you can see below.

=> Server error [-3200] from 192.168.56.101:8000: IOU1: uncaught exception <class 'UnicodeEncodeError'>: 'ascii' codec can't encode character '\u2022' in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)

st = os.stat(path)
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character '\u2022' in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)

Any help on this error please. What is it that I do wrong?



I solved this issue:
HOW? the path to IOU devices was wrong.
Below you can see what I did wrong
•/home/gns3/Documents/GNS3/images/i86bi_linux-ipbase-ms-12.4.bin

I deleted de bullit:
/home/gns3/Documents/GNS3/images/i86bi_linux-ipbase-ms-12.4.bin

it solved the problem, but now I get this problem:

=> Server notification: node IOU1: IOU has stopped running

IOU License Error: invalid license
License for key 3d8 required on host "gns3-iouvm".
Obtain a license for this key and host from the following location:

http://wwwin-enged.cisco.com/ios/iou/license/index.html

Place in your iourc file as follows (see also the web page
for further details on iourc file format and location)

[license]
gns3-iouvm = <16 char license>;'

any help on this please.

I also solved this error.

I uploaded through the webbrowser
CiscoIOUKeygen.py

Then I logged on to the VM and went to the directory where I started the file [CiscoIOUKeygen.py] That solved the problem
The file is automatically uploaded in the same directory as where you can find your images.
You have the start the file with the following command "python3 CiscoIOUKeygen.py". Remember the letters are case sensitive!

After the key was patched successful I entered the following:

echo 127.0.0.127 xml.cisco.com

This is the reason why "You can disable the phone home feature with something like the above:"

Everything works fine!!!! I wish everybody happy playing GNS3 IOU.

Hi niravdave0192,

I could not use the iourc.txt file that you posted since my vm iou doesn't have the hostid of 00000000. can you please help me generate a license key based on my information below or provide a step-by-step instructions on how to change the hostid in the vm iou?

hostname: gns3-iouvm
hostid: a8c06801

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Niyukti,
Welcome to GNS3 family
Hell yes ! you can use GNS3 on your laptop, only issue it will lag a lot.
Best configuration will be :
Core i5/i7 ( i5 will also do as I use i5, i7 are still hanging costly in market )
RAM : 4 GB to 8 GB ( more the RAM better will be the performance )

Latest version is GNS3 v1 alpha 6 with switching included.
As you're new to GNS3 and networking too, CCNA is the first step to enter into networking world, GNS3 0.8.6 will be more then enough for practicing the basic stuff.
GNS3 v1 alpha 6 is paid version of GNS3 by GNS3 founders but will be available free to everybody in end of 2014. If you want a copy of new GNS3 you have to
contribute to development of software, click on following link if you're interested or simply never mind :
https://gns3.crowdhoster.com/become-an- ... ase-member

I hope this was helpful to you, If you need anymore clarification feel free to ask.

nirav,

thanks for your reply and the license worked. when you get the chance, please post the way you found on how to change the hostid in the vm iou.

i just want to share what i encountered today. the license that you sent didn't work at first and that's because the hostid of the vm iou for some weird reason changed to 00000000. i used the license that you posted before for hostid 00000000 and it worked. the next thing i did for testing was, powered off the vm iou. i powered back the vm iou and the hostid went back to a8c06801.

any idea why is this happening?

Thanks.

nirav,

about the hostid question that i had, i found out what was going on.

when the network settings of vm iou is on "host-only adapter and virtual-box host-only ethernet adapter", that's when it is getting the hostid of 00000000. when i switched the network settings of the vm iou to "bridged adapter and microsoft loopback adapter", that's when it is getting the other hostid.


but when the vm iou is in "host-only adapter and virtual-box host-only ethernet adapter" network settings, it could not get an ip address.


thanks

I have the exact issue like zombietek. My hostid has been changed to something else.

Nirav,

Can you let me know how to change the hostid? I have tried many different way including CiscoIOUKeygen.py but I can't get it to run on IOU box. Seems like python is not installed.

Thanks,
Ken
