When I start VPSC, in GNS3 I get the following,

  1. When I try and click test under Dynamips I get Failed to start dynamips
  2. When I try and drag a router over to the main screen I get  Cant start Dynamips on port 7200


Copy the file cygwin1.dll from your VPCS folder into your dynamip folder.
