Practice TSHOOT Tickets with Packet Tracer & EVE-NG

March 6th, 2019 in Guide Go to comments

Special thanks to Buddy who sent us these files. Please say thanks to him. Now you can practice most TSHOOT Tickets with Packet Tracer v6.1. Please download all the tickets in one file here: https://www.networktut.com/download/Cisco_PT_6_1_TSHOOT_Package.zip. All the guides were included in that file.

Note: Please use at least the final Packet Tracer v6.1 (STUDENT Release) or above to open them. Below is a screenshot of the pkt files:


From Buddy:

Please notice: It’s mainly all the Packet Tracer TSHOOT L2 based trouble tickets, that needs to be reconfigured with STATIC IP addresses at the PC Clients by today

Thus when reconfiguring the two PC Clients with static IP addresses, please remember to also EXCLUDE the two Client IP addresses (.3 and .4) within the DHCP Pool at DHCP Server R4, at the same time.


Special thanks to Marcus for creating the TSHOOT topology with EVE-NG network emulator (currently this is one topology file with working configuration, not the tickets). You can download this file here: https://www.networktut.com/download/TShoot_300-135-TT_EVE-NG.zip. Below is screenshot of the EVE-NG file:


+ EVE-NG emulator must be installed to open this file.
+ This file uses these IOL images (but you may use other IOL images):
 – i86bi_LinuxL2-AdvEnterpriseK9-M_152_May_2018.bin
 – i86bi_LinuxL3-AdvEnterpriseK9-M2_157_3_May_2018.bin
+ Importing steps:
1. click ACTIONS/Import external labs
2. select target lab but don’t unzip it then import
3. BEFORE starting any nodes on ASW1,ASW2,DSW1,DSW2 select the Layer2 IOL image that is present in your eve.
4. click More actions/Start all nodes

    I had been trying all day today to get the EVE-NG working with the above listed topology and tickets from NetworkTUT. However after getting the EVE to work and routers to turn on I realised that the supposingly Full Working Topology actually does not work and has missing configurations. It is a beta or under development I guess and will be fine however it is not ready for the test takers to practice tickets.

    What is it that you cannot do in Packet Tracer as for learner or new user that would be the best product and doesn’t need any router images and this and that?

    @Marcus I used to load the tickets in the EVE-NG topology based from the links provided by Marcus..I am just trying to verify the same scenario in packet tracer/tshoot exam wherein I tried to ping from client 1. It suggest that for ticket 1 if you have this, its some missing config in ospf.
    ping —failed
    ping —success

    But in eve-ng, both ping are failed..is ticket 1 in eve-ng the same as the packet tracer? vice versa? I cant find the point on how to use eve-ng for preparation in tshoot tickets..Am I missing something???

    Well, looong time no see U Guys!

    Here’s three quite USEFULL Packet Tracer TSHOOT Tips, when troubleshooting the original (not very new) 642-832 Packet Tracer TSHOOT infrastructure here at Network TUT:

    Pls. change the PC1 and PC2 Client IP address setup from “Dynamic IP DHCP” to “STATIC” IP Addressing setup, within ALL PT IPv4 Tickets, since the original TSHOOT IP DHCP setup ain’t used any longer at the PC Clients within the current TSHOOT exam by today!

    Pls also remember to wait about TWO minutes from Ticket Start for the following eBGP startup message at CE Router R1:

    R1#%BGP-5-ADJCHANGE: neighbor Up <—- !!!

    B4 starting any Troubleshooting within each individual IPv4 TSHOOT Ticket!!!

    (Since NOW we're getting our much needed eBGP routes into the R1 IP Routing Table, and our (IPv4) Tickets is therefore fully up and running at that moment!)

    Finally, pls note that present IPv6 based TSHOOT Tickets needs some "config updating" due to the current Packet Tracer Software release! –

    (There's a need for some Bug Fixing etc. within some of the current IPv6 Tickets by today Q1 2019 !)

    Anyway – Have fun and Good luck at exam to anyone of you Guys!

    Pls notice – It’s mainly all the Packet Tracer TSHOOT L2 based trouble tickets, that needs to be reconfigured with STATIC IP adresses at the PC Clients by today

    Thus when reconfiguring the two PC Clients w. static IP’s, please remember to also EXCLUDE  the two Client IP addresses (.3 and .4)  within the DHCP Pool at DHCP Server R4, at the same time.

    Anyone having troubles finding the answer I finally found it… Here is a screenshot – the toolbar is hidden and you need to click the ARROW to bring it out.

    See screenshot here link – just remove the spaces so the link works
