How to add Cisco IOS (Dynamips Images) to Eve-ng. Hi, I am using NX-OS92 9.2.1 image for my GNS3 lab on VMware. Eachtime I start my switch it goes to loader mode, I have tried boot (image.bin) sometimes it load but mostly it comes back to loader prompt. I have also different versions of the nexus image, but same issue. What is the issue here? GNS3 will NOT work for Nexus. It's Student's responsibility to test and practice these on REAL Devices such as Nexus 7000 and 5000 Series. Those taking this course should have a basic knowledge of Networking e.g Static Routing, IP Addressing, Average Knowledge of Dynamic Routing.

Here I am listing all the working versions of Cisco IOS which I have tested with the latest version of GNS3.

Update as on 14th May 2018 –

All the IOS, IOU, Nexus and other images has been updated, checked and verified with latest GNS3 & GSN3 VM. Download here –

Feel free to download them and use them for your Cisco certifications studies.

GNS3 is an open source (GNU GPL) software that simulates complex networks while being as close as possible from the way real networks perform, all of this without having dedicated network hardware such as routers and switches.

GNS3 provides an intuitive graphical user interface to design and configure virtual networks, it runs on traditional PC hardware and may be used on multiple operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

In order to provide complete and accurate simulations, GNS3 actually uses the following emulators to run the very same operating systems as in real networks:

  • Dynamips, the well known Cisco IOS emulator.
  • VirtualBox, runs desktop and server operating systems as well as Juniper JunOS.
  • QEMU, a generic open source machine emulator, it runs Cisco ASA, PIX and IPS.

GNS3 is an excellent alternative or complementary tool to real labs for network engineers, administrators and people studying for certifications such as Cisco CCNA, CCNP andCCIE as well as Juniper JNCIA, JNCIS and JNCIE.
