    Connecting VIRL to the outside world


      Hi all,

      I have the following issue : I am not able to make my topologies communicate with the outside world.

      Hardware/Software configuration :

      PC i5 + 8go Ram / windows 10 pro / VM Player 7.1.4 / VIRL 1.5.145 / VM Maestro 1.5.0



      The global settings are :

      IOS-v :

      @ - gigabitEthernet 0/1

      ip route gigabitEthernet 0/1


      Ethernet board of the PC :



      VIRL :

      @ - eth0

                 ip forwarding  is activated (sysctl net.ipv4.ipforward = 1)


      Tests results :
      IOS-v ping VIRL

      VIRL ping IOS-v & the Ethernet board of the PC

      BUT : IOS-v cannot ping the Ethernet board of the PC


      I tried without success:

      1. That configuration IOS-v <> VIRL on flat network 172.16.1.X & VIRL<>PC on 192.168.136.X with ip forwarding activated on VIRL
      2. A configuration with IOS-v, flat and PC on 172.16.1.X but ping between PC and VIRL fail, I don’t understand why I must use 192.168.136.X
      3. A configuration with IOS-v, flat and PC on 192.168.136.X. Implies to change flat address to 192.168.136.X with this procedure (I am no sure):
        1. Modify flat from 172.16.1.X to 192.168.136.X on virl.ini
        2. For all ports : neutron port-delete <n° of port corresponding on subnet 172.16.1.X>
        3. neutron subnete-delete <n° of subnet corresponding on subnet 172.16.1.X>
        4. neutron subnet-create <new name><192.168.136.X>
        5. On the panel simulation of Maestro I can see the flat network with an address on 192.168.136.X, IOS-v gigabitEthernet 0/1 has an address on 192.168.136.X but ping between IOS-v and VIRL fail

      Please is somebody can help me ?

      Best regards,
