I am setting up a lab for ASA.  I have the ASA running in GNS3 and I have configured.  What I'd like to do is to use the ASDM for the ASA, but i cannot make the jump from my phyiscal network to my virtual one.  I am running GNS3 v1.4.4 and VM workstation v12.1.1. When I do a ipconfig on my local PC (the PC that the GNS# and VMware are running on), It shows 1 virtual box IP (169.254.185.200/16) and 2 VMWare NIC's (192.168.129.1/24 & 192.168.15.1/24).  I can ping all three IP addresses.  I have bothturned off the firewall  on  the workstation to test connecting to the virtural enviroment and added the subnets to  the allowed list on the firewall both inbound and out bound.  Still no joy.

You need to do it through the loopback. I linked below step by step guide.

Did you connect the right nic to the cloud?
Also, make sure NPCAP is installed. If not, rerun GNS3 installation.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
