Traditionally, the first post in the series describes how to setup a development environment. This time I’ll do it DevOps-style. I’ll show how to use Packer to automatically create and configure a VM with UNetLab and Jenkins pre-installed.
In this post we’ll look at how to create arbitrary topologies and push configuration to Nodes in UNetlab via REST SDK. We’ll conclude by extending our sample application to create and configure a 3-node topology and enable full connectivity between all nodes
In this post I’ll show how to build REST SDK to authenticate, create labs and nodes in UnetLab. I’ll briefly cover the difference between composition and inheritance design patterns and demonstrate how to use test-driven development
This is the first, introductory, post in a series dedicated to REST APIs for Network Engineers. In this post we’ll learn what REST API is, what are the most common tools and ways to consume it. Later in the series I’ll show how to build a REST client to control UnetLab, a very popular network emulation environment.
This post will demonstrate how to automate the build of a typical enterprise branch network consisting of a pair of WAN routers, a core switch and 3 access layer switches. I will show how to create the initial bootstrap configuration and enable basic routing with OSPF
