How do you set up “ip route” for default gateway to another router (R2) directly connected to R1? I tried “ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 fastEthernet 0/0 192.168.137.2” & many other ip routes commands like this but no success. Can YOU PLEASE MAKE A VIDEO or PM or reply back to answer question Matt Haedo May 27, 2014 Thanks for another great video Keith. It’s important to note that enabling ICS (internet connection sharing) will prevent AnyConnect from connecting. To get this to work, simply stop the ICS service, connect with AnyConnect, and restart the ICS service. damien dyell May 27, 2014 THANK YOU!! First off – I have a year subscription at CBTNuggets.com (which is totally worth it!). I just passed ICND1 and I am working towards ICND2 now with Jeremy. However I decided to watch Keith’s series on GNS3 which has been awesome up til the nugget in which we connect GNS3 to the internet. I have windows 8 and I have been stuck on this nugget for a week now, this youtube micronugget just got me past that! So Thanks, seriously! But I wish the CBT website had an alert or note within their GNS series notifying us that the instructions for bridging the loopback to physical adapter and then using them in GNS3 will fail if you have windows 8. Anyhow, I am just glad that I found this micronugget linked in a forum.. can’t wait to continue the journey of networking. zaxaev imran May 27, 2014 GREAT :) agatheiz May 27, 2014 Great vid. Thank you! Hatim El Oufir May 28, 2014 I did the same thing, but when I try to ping to the loopback interface that didn’t work for me ! HELP enorej May 28, 2014 Hi Keith, I was having issues connecting ASA on GNS3 to the internet on Windows 8, you do have one video but its for Windows 7.

Keith Barker explains how to connect GNS3 in Windows 8: http://cbt.gg/14DmbBy Keith Barker May 28, 2014 Open source software, with fairly new Windows versions ? There are still some issues to work out, and sounds like you are running into some. I don’t know why adding the switch would cause a failure. As a work around, avoid using a switch. If you must have a switch, you may want to use a router switch module in GNS3, which can provide similar functionality. Hope that helps, Keith animounted May 28, 2014 Thank you for this video, I was struggling with the old method wondering why I couldn’t get it to work. I’ll have to try this out next time I am playing with GNS3. Love these micronuggets, keep em coming! GROV3R 117 May 28, 2014 Hi keith, Great Video but i am in a bit of a strange problem. I am running windows 8 pro with GNS3 0.8.5. I am able to connect GNS3 router to my pc’s loopback but if add a switch between the router and cloud than there is a lot of packet loss. Can you explain the reason Why is that? THanx. Keith Barker May 28, 2014 Thanks for the feedback. Glad you like the videos! Keith Keith Barker May 28, 2014 Hi Patrick- I am not sure there is a working solution for that with VBox/GNS3/Win8.x at the moment. I would be interested in any testing you do that may allow it.
