How to Configure Switching on GNS3 Etherswitch modules and VLAN Database – Video 12 GNS3 Labs for CC

VIDEO 12 in the GNS3 Labs for CCNA 200-301. Be sure to subscribe and check out the rest of the series for the rest of the labs!

Here is a link to the first video in the playlist for the Complete GNS3 Labs for CCNA 200-301 Exam:

The purpose of this video is to explain and demonstrate switching on gns3. It is possible to get switching emulation working on gns3. Gns3 Router images allow for switching modules that can be used for switching. You can configure vlans and trunks on the gns3 switching.

There are GNS3 switching limitations however and I’m going to show you how to make the best of it. I will also show you how to use the gns3 vlan database and vlan configuration in gns3.

I go through the gns3 vlan database functionality while configuring vlans on etherswitch modules in gns3. VLAN configuration in gns3 is pretty easy and I’ll show you how in this gns3 vlan tutorial.
