GNS3 v1.2.3 VPCS not working on OSX

Today, I was testing some stuff, and instead of using another router disabled routing which would eat up some resources on my laptop. I thought of using VPCS which came in with GNS3. Since VPCS takes up very little memory, and all I want is to have hosts that can receive IP addresses, can ping, etc. It seems like VPCS is the best choice, for my laptop which is MBA mid 2012.

When I dropped a VPCS on my GNS3 canvas, I got an error message stating This node isn’t initialized. vpcs_based_config.txt could not be found. I checked the location of the supposed to be config of VPCS. I found no .txt in the folder.

I opened the GNS3 > Preference > VPCS > Path to VPCS base script file and pasted this location.


At this point, I got the VPCS working. I am able to console to the VPCS 🙂
