As someone who travels often, and always looking to make use of the travel time, I was pleased to find that I can suspend and resume the Dynamips routers. This saves me battery on longer trips, or lets me have more CPU when I running other applications such as Parallels / VMware to give me some Microsoft Visio joy. iTerm sessions are not terminated by doing this, they just don’t show any data until you resume the sessions.
I wanted Dynamips to act more like the way I think and it keeps on opening multiple terminal windows but I like to use iTerm.
To get started with my lab faster I use iTerm to prepare a full set of possible sessions. This post walks through how to do this which should help you to get started faster. Also some keyboard shortcuts.
I have a directory ‘dynalab’ in my ‘Documents’ where I have put ALL my Dynamips / Dynagen related files. I created a directory there which has all my IOS images, this makes more sense to my mind. Makes it easier to backup.
