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.

I have this problem too with gns3 and vmware esxi.

i used “eve-ng” before and it just works with RoMon excellent.
