I have been reading a post on Group Study from Scott on hooking up his Dynamips to real switches from his IMAC Mini. After reading his posts on this I thought I would try this out. I grabbed my 3550 in the basement and hooked it up to my Dynamips session in windows. I have two nics in my machine and connected the free one to the 3550 I got the network card information from the “network device” bat file and set the “fa 0/0 port =” to that nic information on my Dynamips config. I started up R1 and did a “no shut” on int fa0/0 and a minute later I was seeing the CDP information from the real switch. The possibility of being able to do all these labs without having to rewire, run 9 routers with backbones is very exciting. All I need now is two usb hubs and some usb ethernet converters to get this really running to test out with four switches.

    Aby
    You just need to bridge out the connection and change the setting in the .net file

    F0/0 = NIO_gen_eth:\Device\NPF_{B00A38DD-F10B-43B4-99F4-B4A078484487}

    There are tutorials for different OSes. You can just Google them. If you can’t find them let me know. It is pretty easy.
