NETSIM Connection Issue - Launched as non-root user

 

Hi,

 

 

I ran into a small problem with my NETSIM’s today.  I launched a small NETSIM simulation on a Linux VM as a non-root user and I found that I was unable to connect to the CLI consoles.  On a hunch I killed the NETSIMs, su’d to root and re-launched the NETSIMS.  This time I was able to connect to the various CLI consoles.

 

 

Is this the expected behavior?  Do you have to be root to run NETSIMs on Linux? (I know that I don’t have to be root on my OS X NSO installation.)

 

 

Is there some way to launch a NETSIM on Linux as a normal non-root user?

 

 

Please advise.

 

 

Regards,

 

 

Michael Bonnett, Jr.

Hi Michael,

 

 

There should be no problem running ncs-netsim as a non-root user on Linux, I guess you have to elaborate on the symptoms of your original problem for us to be able to help you. Start with checking access rights on the files in <your package>/netsim directory.
