CHR 6.42.6+GNS3 = No RoMON

Tue Jul 24, 2018 4:59 pm

Hi Guys,

I cannot get RoMON to work in CHR 6.42.6 when running in GNS3.

I can connect to the RoMON server without issue, but it cannot connect to the other routers.

Has anyone else experienced this and been able to resolve it?

RoMON uses a MKT proprietary L2 protocol.
The default simulated switches in GNS3 only forward Ethernet frames.

This is why you are not able to use RoMON, or other non-standard L2 protocol in GNS.

Work-around is not to use the GNS3 "switch" object to connect your simulated MKTs, but use something else to do the switching.

the solution is to change the default configuration of the ethernet interface that comes by default virtio-net-pci to some intel or realtek interface I recommend using intel gigabyte ethernet (e1000)
