GNS3 1.5.2 Released!

Posted by mblackwe Employee Aug 23, 2016

GNS3 version 1.5.2 has been released. This is a minor release to fix some issues found in version 1.5.1




  • The GNS3 server default port has been moved from 8000 to 3080.
  • Qemu VM type has been dropped when adding a new Qemu template using the Wizard.
    • Please download a template from the marketplace to install pre-configured VMs as described in this documentation.
  • Please report bugs/issues found in that release. We cannot possibly test every use case and we depend on reports to improve GNS3 (Thanks!).

Files for Windows and Mac OS X can be downloaded from here.


Linux installation


For Linux users we recommend an installation via Pypi.

Hi everyone. We are working on a plan to create a Getting Started Guide for SRM customers (for reference, here is the getting started guide for SAM). We have an outline we would like to get your feedback on. If you've purchased/implemented SRM in the past 6 months, please send me a note - The interview should take around 30 minutes and we will get you 2000 THWACK points in return. Thanks!
