    Default Installing GNS3 on a dedicated server

    I have an unused server at my house, and I'm thinking of turning it into a dedicated GNS3 machine, which would be accessed remotely from my other computers. I'm not very familiar with the program. Is this a realistic idea, and if so, what OS and/or hypervisor should I run under it? The hard drive is empty now.

    One option is to install VMware ESXi on the server and then deploy the GNS3 VM appliance. This is what I'm using. I have GNS3 installed on a second virtual machine running windows 7, but it connects to the remote server (GNS3 vm appliance).

    If you don't want to do that, you could also install a Windows OS on the server and install GNS3 locally on it. Remote desktop to the server when you want to use it
