Dynamips .net file | INE v5 topology | For use with real switches

Visibility: Open to anyone

This is based on the .net template I am using for my CCIE R&S lab studies. I am using INE's product so this is based off of INE's v5 .net.  I have made some adjustments to include:


  • Removed the 4 "switch" instances as I run 4 3550s.
  • Tied "switch" interfaces to real NICs via NIO definitions.  Current file shows Linux format, can easily be adapted for Windows use as well.
  • Utilizes a single hypervisor only. I run a 64-bit Linux OS distribution, so if you run 32bit Linux or Windows and run into issues - keep that in mind!
  • Pre-loads the config on R1 - R6 to make it easier to log into and work with them.  I create a new .net for each lab so this path is unique to each startup config.  INE ships them in .txt format, I have a script that renames them all to .cfg.  
  • Pre-loads BB1/BB2/BB3 dynamips configs from INE onto those routers. 





I have made a few minor edits:

  • I forgot to change the device names to lowercase letters in the config path.   Fixed.
    • Reason: INE ships out initial configs with lowercase host name.
  • Updated upper banner with description/formatting corrections.
  • The .net is now Windows friendly, however you will need to update the NIO definitions to match Windows format.
