Every device that wants to communicate on a network requires an IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server details. There are two methods to configure an IP address information on a Host:
- Statically (manually), this is typically reserved for mission critical servers and network devices (routers and switches).
- Dynamically, this is typically used for hosts that do not care if their IP changes periodically.
I recently got a new laptop at work. It has one major downside, it only has 4GB of RAM which is soldered straight into the motherboard and therefore can not be upgraded. Also 500MB of the RAM is reserved for the GPU, so I only have about 3.5GB of useabe RAM. This is fine for running my day to day applications for work, but does not leave much wiggle room for running GNS3.
Luckily I work for a hosting company and we have quite a few servers lying around doing nothing. I managed to get hold of a decommisioned server with 2 quad core processors and 48GB of RAM, perfect to run a remote GNS3 server on. We mainly use Centos and since it is not an OS I am familiar with (I mainly use Ubuntu) I decided to give it a go and try something new. In this post I will run through the steps I went through to get GNS3 sevrer running on Centos as well as setting up the GNS3 GUI to connect to the remote server. Continue reading GNS3 and IOU remote server install on Centos 6.5

No problems, rebooted and went about my business. Continue reading Ubuntu kernel update breaks Virtualbox
