Download GNS3

GNS3 v2.1.7 has been released for download on June 12, 2018 ! This maintenance version corrects various bugs in GNS3 v2.1.0 which intoduced new features such as packet filters (packet loss, latency, jitter etc.) for links, node duplication and appliance templates which can be installed from within the application. Be careful that project files opened in GNS3 v2.1.x cannot be open in GNS3 v2.0 anymore.

GNS3 virtual machine update from 2.1.3 to 2.1.4 might fail with a permission denied error. The following command solves the issue :

sudo chown -R gns3:gns3 /home/gns3/gns3-server 

Changes in GNS3 v2.1.7 :

  • Do not try to update link if it is being deleted. Fixes #2483.

  • Fix can't add SVG image to project. Fixes #2502

  • Remove unwanted trailing characters and other white spaces when reading .md5sum files. Fixes #2498.

  • Update interface sequence number check. Fixes #2491.

  • Logo should not have context menu, Fixes: #2507

  • Update logo position only when changes, Fixes: #2506

GNS3 2.0 was a major release of GNS3 which bringed major architectural changes, as all the “application intelligence” has been moved from the client to the GNS3 server. GNS3 was only a desktop application from the first version up to version 0.8.3. With the more recent 1.x versions, GNS3 had the possibility to use remote servers.  In version 2.0, multiple clients could control a GNS3 server at the same time.
