The GNS3 server manages emulators such as Dynamips, VirtualBox or Qemu/KVM. Clients like the GNS3 GUI controls the server using a HTTP REST API.

You will need the GNS3 GUI (gns3-gui repository) to control the server.

Branches

master

Linux

GNS3 is perhaps packaged for your distribution:

Linux (Debian based)

The following instructions have been tested with Ubuntu and Mint. You must be connected to the Internet in order to install the dependencies.

  • jsonschema

The following commands will install some of these dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools

Finally these commands will install the server as well as the rest of the dependencies:

cd gns3-server-master
sudo python3 setup.py install
gns3server

To run tests use:

py.test -v

Run as daemon (Unix only)

You will found init sample script for various systems inside the init directory.

Usefull options:

  • –daemon: start process as a daemon
  • –log logfile: store output in a logfile
  • –pid pidfile: store the pid of the running process in a file and prevent double execution

All the init script require the creation of a GNS3 user. You can change it to another user.

sudo adduser gns3

upstart

For ubuntu < 15.04

sudo chown root /etc/init/gns3.conf
sudo service gns3 start

systemd

You need to copy init/gns3.service.systemd to /lib/systemd/system/gns3.service

sudo chown root /lib/systemd/system/gns3.service
sudo systemctl start gns3

Windows

Please use our all-in-one installer to install the stable build.

If you install via source you need to first install:

Then you can call

python setup.py install

to install the remaining dependencies.

To run the tests, you also need to call

pip install pytest pytest-capturelog

before actually running the tests with

python setup.py test

or with

py.test -v

Mac OS X

Please use our DMG package for a simple installation.

If you want to test the current git version or contribute to the project.

You can follow this instructions with virtualenwrapper: http://virtualenvwrapper.readthedocs.org/ and homebrew: http://brew.sh/.

brew install python3
mkvirtualenv gns3-server --python=/usr/local/bin/python3.4
python3 setup.py install
gns3server

SSL

If you want enable SSL support on GNS3 you can generate a self signed certificate:

bash gns3server/cert_utils/create_cert.sh

This command will put the files in ~/.config/GNS3/ssl

After you can start the server in SSL mode with:

python gns3server/main.py --certfile ~/.config/GNS3/ssl/server.cert --certkey ~/.config/GNS3/ssl/server.key --ssl

Or in your gns3_server.conf by adding in the Server section:
