Using SDM with GNS3

I have a Cisco IOS image for router  3745.
in GNS3 I selected the 3700 router,started it and configured both interfaces(int f0/0 and f0/1) with ip addresses and can ping both IP addresses(from Dynamips window).

f0/0 ip=10.10.10.1
f0/1 ip=192.168.1.1
my computer has a static ip of 10.10.10.2
I can't ping any of the router interfaces.
when I run SDM and enter an Ip of one of the interfaces or the hostname of the router, I get the message shown in the attached screenshot.
Any help on how to get this fixed?

Thanks

You will need to setup a loopback interface to connect your GNS3 routers to. Here is a link that goes over connecting a loopback to gns3.

http://www.blindhog.net/how-to-integrate-a-microsoft-loopback-interface-with-gns3/

After you have connection between the routers and your computer you can then configure the router for SDM. ONce that is done you should be able to access the router via SDM

here is what you need on the router for SDM access along with a link to a cisco guide
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps5318/prod_installation_guide09186a00803e4727.html#wp70999


Router(config)# ip http server
Router(config)# ip http secure-server

pn the demo it looks like the user already has a loopback interface on his PC 10.100.100.50.

So you configured the cloud and attached an Ethernet connection on GSM router to the cloud loopback adapter?

interface is no shut ?

Yes...
When I run the Network Device list (GNS3 batch file) it doesn't show the MS -Loopback adapter, so when I configure the cloud the MS-loopback is not showing there.

I also see the MS-Loopback showing as an Unidentified Network in control panel, though I can ping it from within my PC.

Im not sure about other versions of windows but my XP boxes i usually have to restart windows for the loopback to interact with GNS3.
Also make sure you do not have Windows firewall or other security tools blocking the communication on the loopback

Not familiar with IE8 or windows 7 but it looks like either your system or the browser is blocking java from launching SDM. Make sure popups are allowed and java is allowed to execute from IE8

From past experience i know SDM does not play nice with newer versions of Java. Try uninstalling and then install a older version (say 6.6 or later)
