To install GNS3 -2.1.5 on Ubuntu – 18.04
GNS3 is a Graphical Network Simulator. It allows you to simulate a network on your computer. It is an open source software that simulates complex networks while being as close as possible to the way of real networks performance and also used to emulate, configure, test and troubleshoot virtual and real networks. GNS3 allows you to run a small topology consisting of only a few devices on your laptop, to those that have many devices hosted on multiple servers or even hosted in the cloud.
Let's start with adding the repository that contains gns3.
