LISP runs great in GNS3/dynamips

So if you're interested in testing LISP, download the latest engineering release from for the 7200 (contract required, of course) and give it a try.  I've been very happy with LISP and after extensive testing in GNS3 have been running LISP VPN in production now for months as an alternative to DMVPN.  I can post some configs if anyone is interested, although it is very easy to configure.

Hi Matt,

which IOS version do you use with GNS3 to run lisp on the 7200?

Hello Matt

Can you share with me the GNS3 configuration for LISP?

Also I shall be thankful for IOS.

Now I design a networking solution for a two data centers and I must ensure seamless mobility for a virtual machines. I would like to use LISP for the task.

Later I can provide you the results of the proof test.

Hi Sergey,

I recommend to use c7200-adventerprisek9-mz.152-4.XB10 for GNS3. I tested it with a LISP+GETVPN solution and it works great.

Hi Sergey,

I build a little lisp lab for you which is similar to the real lisp project I am working for. Here are some short explanations:

DC: Represents some networks at the datacenter. These networks are the destinations for the trafic from the sites.

DCXTR: Lisp router for the datacenter with static routing to the datacenter networks and

MRMS: Map-Resovler and Map-Server

Site1: 4 local networks and one management address configured as loopbacks will be propagated with lisp; ip sla with tracking to generate traffic to the datacenter

I skiped the GETVPN configuration and the redundant DC configuration to keep it simple. Hope it is ok in this way...

If there is someone interested I could add a GETVPN configuration to this small lab.

Hi Sergey,

I didn't try "lisp host mobility solution" yet, but I will go through the document this week and set up a test solution in GNS3.
