    910The tool consist of a web interface that connects to the slice's nodes and allows you to change the routing paths and generate traffic between selected nodes. The interface has desktop-like windows that can be moved around and resized as you please.

    1618Each circle represents a node in the network. The lines represent links. Note that the global node (GN) does not have links, it acts in the background. Left click and drag a node to rearrange them. For this tutorial arrange them so they match the geminiportal layout like so:

    2022As you rearrange the nodes, note the window directly below the topology window. This is the information (Info) window.

    2426This window has some brief information about the node or link that the cursor is currently over. This case has information about '''VM-1'''. The icon represents a virtual machine. The hostname is pcvm63-2.uky.emulab.net.
     
    5456Set the path from '''VM-1''' to '''VM-4''' to follow links '''lan3''', '''lan5''', '''lan4'''.  Do this by left clicking on the links while holding the shift key. Once the three links are selected, click the [[Image(add_path_button.png)]] button. The results should look like this:

    6870Now add another path (in addition to the existing path) between '''VM-1''' and '''VM-4''' that follows links '''lan3''' and '''lan0'''.
