Post subject:  Customized Mac Terminal Windows for GNS3

I think that the Mac OS X Terminal application is good enough for my needs, but I like to make sure there is clear separation between my real world work and my emulated work. This means I would like to have Terminal use different settings from my defaults when launched by GNS3. Terminal isn't friendly to that kind of request so I build a wrapper to make it possible.

The attached script will open a Terminal window using the "Man Page" settings instead of your default, you can edit it to change it to any settings set you prefer.

Place the file on your system in /usr/local/bin (or wherever you would like) and then modify GNS3 terminal settings:

Terminal command:
/usr/bin/osascript /usr/local/bin/gns3_term.txt "telnet %h %p ; exit"

The first time you do it the system will ask you if it is OK for GNS3 to have access to the automation accessibility features, you have to approve it through the System Preferences window. This has only been tested on 10.9 so far, feedback is welcome.
