Now the simplest way to get genus 3 to talk to the physical network is to use the NAT device however the NetID device allows connections out of genus 3 but doesn’t allow connections back into gns3.
Configure a Cloud device on GNS3 and link it to the NIC (Network Interface Card) installed on the PC.
Connect the Cloud device to the rest of the virtual topology. In my case I have a DHCP enabled router with IP address 172.17.5.1. So, If I configure GNS3 device to autoconfigure IP with this method, and it works, this means that connection is Ok.

Why are virtual devices on GNS3 cannot Ping the physical host network?
Otherwise the default gateway used 192.168.10.254 might go somewhere else… Basically these physical devices and virtual resources in GNS3 use the same NIC. So they all work with the same MAC address on all local networks. They can’t ping each other because ARP and broadcasts don’t work.
Can you connect GNS3 to a physical PC?
GNS3 was physically installed on a Windows PC (firewall also disabled). The PC can ping the same regular gateway and the same public IP addresses. Either IPv4 or IPv6. However, R1 is having trouble pinging the PC itself, even though several of them are on the same subnet. Neither IPv4 nor IPv6.
Can a GNS3 router Ping a physical host?
However, I cannot ping my traditional PC or TFTP between my GNS3 router. I disabled the firewall and it still doesn’t work.

If it’s Windows, Windows Firewall can be enabled in most cases.
