I am looking at using a network emulator and virtual devices (ex: EveNG or GNS3 or VIRL) and in these cases the devices could be accessed via a console port that can be accessed via telnet IP:Port where the IP is 127.0.0.1 and the port is allocated by the emulator. There is no authentication for these devices
How does NSO handle these devices? How do I configure the authentication for these devices?
After posting I did some more research and my conclusion was that I can't and I should not use the NEDs in the free demo for this. That NED that comes with the free version is old and it lacks most of the options that come after ned-settings. I do not have any of the below options. I learned that they exist from someone who tried to help me.
