GNS3 1.3.0 It was released by the GNS3 team a few days ago, this version is mainly rewritten, especially the GNS3 server. Many issues found in GNS3 1.x have been fixed and will be a good basis for exploring this new feature and applauding the GNS3 team. These guys do really well, which is why I sincerely love open source software. I installed this latest version on Ubuntu 64-bit version and Kali Linux 64-bit version.

Earlier we discussed GNS3 1.2.3 installation. If you are running a previous version of gns3, you only need to upgrade gns3-gui-1.3.0 and gns3-server-1.3.0. To do this, go to the server and gui installation.

How to install GNS3 on Ubuntu 18.04 / Ubuntu 16.04

Remember, you need IOS images and IOU images to use it in the GNS3 laboratory environment.
Some new features and fixes provided on GNS3 1.3.0 are:

  • Save as now works fine
  • GUI preferences are stored in JSON format
  • Progress dialog displayed for all communications with the server
  • Automatic crash report
  • Revision number in the project file
  • Automatic crash report
  • Automatically export IOS configuration when closed
  • The console opens in alphanumeric order

This is the step to follow, the first thing to do is to update the system, upgrade, and even upgrade the distribution.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Now we have fixed the dependencies required by GNS3 GNS3 1.3.0 installation. Run the following command to do this.

 sudo apt‐get install python3‐zmq
 sudo apt‐get install python3‐tornado
 sudo apt‐get install python3‐netifaces
 sudo apt‐get install python3‐setuptools
 sudo apt‐get install python3‐pyqt4
 sudo apt‐get install python3‐ws4py

The Dynamips hypervisor also requires the following dependencies. Before the dynamic build and installation, the following dependencies must also be installed.

  sudo apt‐get install uuid‐dev
  sudo apt-get install cmake 
  sudo apt‐get install libelf‐dev
  sudo apt‐get install libpcap‐dev

The next step is Download GNS3 1.3.0-source.zip, Make sure to select LINUX / OTHER version 1.3.0
Unzip the downloaded compressed file. You must change the directory to the location of the newly downloaded gns3.

 unzip GNS3-1.3.0.source.zip

It contains the following files, which we will install one by one.

  • dynamips-0.2.14.zip
  • gns3-server-1.3.0.zip,
  • gns3-gui-1.3.0.zip,
  • iouyap-0.95.zip,
  • vpcs-0.6.zip

Let’s start installing GNS3 server.

cd GNS3-1.3.0-source
unzip gns3-server-1.3.0.zip
cdgns3-server-1.3.0
sudopython3 setup.py install
cd ..

Install GNS3 GUI

$ unzip gns3-gui-1.3.0.zip
$ cd gns3-gui-1.3.0
$ sudo python3 setup.py install
$ cd ..

Now let’s install the power. We build it first, and then install it.

 $ unzip dynamips-0.2.14
 $ cd dynamips-0.2.14
 $ mkdir build
 $ cd build
 $ cmake ..
 $ make
 $ sudo make install
 $ sudo setcap cap_net_admin,cap_net_raw=ep /usr/local/bin/dynamips
 $ cd ../..

Before installing IOU, please install the following dependency utility.

$ sudo apt-get install libssl1.0.0:i386
$ sudo ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /lib/libcrypto.so.4
$ sudo apt-get install bison
$ sudo apt-get install flex
$ sudo apt-get install git
$ git clone http://github.com/ndevilla/iniparser.git
$ cd iniparser
$ make
$ sudo cp libiniparser.* /usr/lib/
$ sudo cp src/iniparser.h /usr/local/include
$ sudo cp src/dictionary.h /usr/local/include

Install GNS3 IOUYAP application that provides network support for IOU

$ unzip iouyap-0.95.zip
$ cd iouyap-95
$ sudo make install
$ sudo cp iouyap /usr/local/bin
$ cd ..

Install VPCS to connect the virtual PC to routers and switches.

$ unzip vpcs-0.6.zip
$ cd vpcs-0.6
$ cd src
$ ./mk.sh
$ sudo cp vpcs /usr/local/bin/
$ cd ../.. 

You have successfully installed GNS3 1.3.0, now it’s time to run it, it feels like “woooow !! I did it!”. input the command:

gns3

If your desktop environment cannot create a launcher for gns3, it is easy. Just download the gns3 icon and use the / usr / local / bin / gns3 command to create the launcher
If you want to connect a virtual VM to Gns3, check out the tutorial on installing VirtualBox on Ubuntu and Kali Linux and Debian or VMware Workstation. The same applies to GNS3’s VMware Player for Virtualization.

Another virtualization platform available for Linux is KVM, although I do n’t know if it can be used with GNS3.
