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.

    Has anyone come across an issue with Eve-ng where it functions properly for 5mins and then your console freezes; i think the nodes simply go down! It is quite irritating and i have not been able to diagnose this issue!
    Also to “Tshoothelp” i think you need to obtain the L2 IOL image and then follow the steps on Eve-NG “How To” section; once done, you’ll see the option come up.

    hi eve users,

    i notice for my eve setup on ASW1, e1/1 and e1/2, both ports have port-security configured. I have removed them from the config and client 1 and 2 is still unable to rx IP. In fact in all the ticket i open, client 1 and 2 has no IP address at all.

    Is that correct???

    @ObTech how do we run these tickets?

    @Jackie: use GNS3

  43. Burìk
    November 28th, 2019

    @ ObTech

    Thanks so much for this! With all tickets supported, your GNS3 setup is the best of them all, hands down.

    @ All

    However, probably due to a GNS3 bug, labs exported as portable seem to mess up the configurations, only a few configurations were purposely wrong as expected, the others were either solved or had a number of other issues regarding sticky mac addresses, or they didn’t match the actual ticket. I have spent hours to fix them and I was going to upload the fixed portable versions just to find out that once you export them as portable they break again, expecially the sticky mac feature on ASW1 will prevent DHCP to work because the client MAC doesn’t match the configuration. Exporting the configurations seem to work though. So, here they are:

    tiny DOT cc/jod0gz

    Importing them is a pain though because for some idiotic reason the exported names have “startup” in them and once you import them GNS3 expect them to have “private” in the file name. So you either rename them all or you copypaste them in the running config and wr.

  44. Burìk
    November 28th, 2019

    Also, with the latest GNS3 release the VPCS MAC seem to be inconsistent between lab reloads. So if using ObTech labs pay attention to ASW1 if clients 1 and 2 don’t get an IP via DHCP, check interfaces ethernet3/2-3 status on ASW1 for err-disabled conditions. Typical of the GNS3 team, fix one thing, break two. *slow clap*

  45. Burìk
    November 30th, 2019

    Another thing. When you import portable projects make sure you SHUT GNS3 DOWN completely [no need to shut down the virtual machine], otherwise the stupid software sometimes MERGES THE CONFIGURATIONS BETWEEN THE LABS and you end up with a total mess.

  46. Jackie
    December 1st, 2019

    @Burìk good work but are these tickets you uploaded already fixed or have mistakes in them as per tickets to correct them ?

  47. Burìk
    December 1st, 2019

    They have all intentional mistakes in them as per tickets in the PDF file. Some of the tickets by ObTech are either solved or they don’t match the ticket number in the PDF. Not his fault, it’s just GNS3 being GNS3.

    To play safe, assuming you have already set up both GNS3 and the VM:

    1) start the VM and wait until it’s fully booted
    2) start GNS3, go to Preferences > GNS3 VM > set “keep the GNS3 VM running”
    3) File > Import portable project, pick one of the tickets and select the location to save the full project
    4) CLOSE GNS3
    5) Repeat 3 and 4 until all tickets are imported

    Now forget about the portable projects and work only on the newly created projects. If you find out that something doesn’t match the ticket you’re working on, use my configurations as a reference.

    Do we need to practice on Packet tracer or EVE-NG network emulator? I am bit confused loaded first ticket in packet tracer and it seems pretty straight forward so shall I continue Packet tracer or use something else?

  49. Jackie,
    December 3rd, 2019

    @Burìk I am really struggling with your GNS3 and labs. It’e either not loading or comes with server error . I would appreciate any help.

  50. Tarzan
    December 3rd, 2019

    @Burik do we need VMware machine to run GNS3 ? can we not run these labs direct in GNS3?
