  1. Hey, nice!

    How did you join a vm with gns3? Do you have any write tutorials on this?

    Thanks in advance,


  2. Thank you Heloisa,

    The procedure is to drag two Clouds in GNS3 Working area, configure the first Cloud for VMWare (vmnet1) Network Device and The other Cloud for the local PC or Another VMWare Network device (vmnetx) (to do this in GNS3 you will require Administrator Access).

    Now Put a router, in the working place, I have seen in some particular scenarios that a switch is required (specially for ASAs); now connect the 2 clouds to the Router who will interconnect those 2 (many) subnet together.

    check this Blog for a graphical representation

    Please let me know how it goes for you

    HTH & Have Fun
