This is a reblog from http://inetpro.org/wiki/Connect_IOU_with_real_networks_or_dynamips and is a perl script that allows Cisco IOU to connect to external resources. I haven’t test this myself.
This was sent in. Got lots more flexibility and more easily adapted for changes in your IOU image (if there are ever any). Comments are my own (hopefully they are accurate).
Wendell Odom has asked the question “If Cisco Would Give Us Anything for Learning/Testing..”. Here is my response.
Here is a bash script for starting multiple IOU instances in a reasonably painless way. It’s not elegant, but I’m not a proper Linux nerd to make it any better than this.
This is a simple bash shell script that looks for all IOU processes that have been started with the ‘wrapper-linux’ utility and then kills those processes.
