IOU would not start , says permission error.

I did the GNS3 install on Debian Jessie

Ran the python script for license

I am confused about whether the Host ID should be all zeros or not, or does this only relate to the Win7 install?

Is the License file exactly this syntax ? where XXXXX is the actual license output from python script.

[license]
gns3-iouvm = XXXXXXXXXXXXX

If anyone can help me out with this , would be much appreciated -- this stuff is completely out of my comfort zone and i really need a CCIE Lab environment as no one out there is even doing rack rentals for v5.

Many thanks

If you get the permission error, then you probably need to set the executable bit on your IOU files.
Code:
chmod +x nameofyourIOUfile.bin


As for the format of the license file, the first part (where you have "gns3-iouvm" above) should be your hostname (type "hostname" in a terminal to see what it is.

You do not need to change your hostid or hostname unless you are trying to use the pre-generated license file that is floating around the forum.
