I’ve been messing around before with Gnome Terminal but was unable to make GNS3 automatically open all router telnet sessions in a single window and multiple tabs. There are some solutions when you google for it but it includes download scripts and making some changes.
Thanks to Darren who posted this in the forum there’s an easier way to do it:
- Make sure you have “konsole” installed otherwise install it by using ‘sudo apt-get install konsole’
- Start GNS3.
- Go to “Edit” then “Preferences”.
- Open the “Terminal Settings” tab.
- Enter this line at the “Terminal Command” box:
/usr/bin/konsole –new-tab -p %d -e telnet %h %p >/dev/null 2>&1 &
That’s it. If you want to see an example check this youtube video:
