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

    Pls carefully look at the MIDDLE/BOTTOM Area of the PT Screen – There’s a “Toolbar” (Outside the PT Workspace) here!
    Then find the text “Ticket Answers:” here, and Click at the small “v” sign right NeXT to this text
    Now within the actual Pull Down Menu, simply select the the Ticket answer or Tech Note you need!
    A new (separate) Window now Pops up, which can be Resized at you need! – That’s it!

    Thanks Buddy

  5. A tech note regarding Packet Tracer 6.1 “show ip bgp xxx” commands:
    December 4th, 2014


    While Troubleshooting TSHOOT Ticket: 3 and 5, within Packet Tracer release 6.1 – pls be aware, that output from the following two commands:

    R1#show ip bgp summ – and:

    R1#show ip bgp neigh

    isn’t 100% correct – (there’s a minor issue in showing the correct “eBGP connection states” within the output for the two PT 6.1 commands in the two tickets)

    The problem has already been reported to the PT R&D Team.

    Because of this, pls use instead:

    R1#show ip route bgp – and:

    R1#show ip bgp

    while troubleshooting TSHOOT Ticket# 3 and 5 within the current Packet Tracer 6.1 release!

    Thank you.

    I just want to say Excellent work Buddy for this accurate simualtion of the Tshoot exam. I just did the exam Yesterday and passed with a 987/1000. My God bless you and everyone else who helped to provide this simulation :)

  8. ccnper
    December 7th, 2014

    Whats the problem with TT3? I’ve spend an hour on investigation but I can find anything that’s wrong… I can see that R1 and ISP are unable to establish a tcp session, but they arebe able to ping eachother. I would run the command debug ip bgp but that command is not available :(

  9. ccnper
    December 7th, 2014

    Ah I found it…. Bloody type in the neighbors command! neighbor remote-as 65002 should be

  10. Buddy
    December 7th, 2014

    Yep, excactly ccnper! – You could also look at the eBGP neighbor address in the output from:

    show ip bgp summary

    and then notice the wrong “.56” address here, but ignore the WRONG eBGP connection state (at the rightmost bottom corner) within this output, as mentioned above here

    Pls also remember to study diverse usefull Tech notes + ticket answers etc within the Menu at the MID/BOTTOM PT Screen (just outside the PT Workspace) – Just click at the small “v”-sign there to select a Menu Option :)

    Have fun!

    I done my exam today and I got 1000/1000 score.
    Thanks to networktut & buddy for the labs & tips.

    Inside the exam, tracert is not available for client PC, debug is also not available.
    So there is no choice but try to ping 1 by 1, 1st step must do ipconfig to reduce the possible problem area to check.

    Most of the labs are still valid, except there are some tricks on the ospf to eigrp redistribution.
    They already have the default metric configured, so be sure to check on it and dont simply select the answer with the configuration of metric in behind.

    Also for the OSPF over IPv6 they have change it to between R2 & R3 instead of R1 & R2.
    Have to check properly and dont rush.

    Mine TT dont have eigrp different AS & EIGRP passive interface.
    DD & MCQ is same with some wording changed especially TMN.
    Do read the README b4 start the labs, as it can clear some of the doubts and save some times.

    Hope my comment can help those that going to take the exam.

    Whats wrong with TT2? I type on DSW1 standby 10 track FastEthernet 0/1, then show standby, but still DSW1 is standy. It should be active, active id DSW2.

  18. Michael
    December 29th, 2014


    Try this on DSW1 within TT2 – It should work ok:

    sh stand br
    conf t
    int vlan 10
    no standby 10 track g0/1
    standby 10 track fa0/1
    int fa0/1
    no shut
    Then a small pause for HSRP convergence, and:
    sh stand br

    Anybody done exam could please advise on how many topology diagrams we will see in exam
    Is this just the one -Which is first on tshoot website or all the topology diagrams included on the page of tshoot website


  20. networktut

    @ASI: You can find all three topologies of the real exam at https://www.networktut.com/tshoot-share-your-experience and please read https://www.networktut.com/tshoot-faqs-tips to understand more about this exam.

    CCENT done, CCNA done, CCDA done, SWITCH done, ROUTE done all in 12 months. Now TSHOOT. I admit, I am having a difficult time understanding where to start preparing for TSHOOT. Anybody have any pointers?

  22. UCvoice
    January 9th, 2015

    Never mind…I am starting with the GNS3 TSHOOT TT videos, then going to practice them in Packet Tracer 6.1. Sounds like the winning plan to me.

    Any updates with regards to Ticket 15. I’m unable to get a DHCP assigned address and there is no reason that I can see for it. The DHCP pool is fine and i’m able to ping the web server from the access switch

  24. Buddy

    As mentioned in Answer 3 within the PT MID/BOTTOM pull Down-menu for PT TT#15, just change exsisting IP helper-address on DSW1 (vlan 10) to match configured Loopback x I/F-address:

    on router R4, like this:

    DSW1#conf t
    Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
    DSW1(config)#int vl 10
    DSW1(config-if)#no ip helper-address
    DSW1(config-if)#ip helper-address
    DSW1(config-if)#no shut

    Then checking for a valid (10) IP address on Client 1, as shown here:

    Packet Tracer PC Command Line 1.0


    FastEthernet0 Connection:(default port)

    Link-local IPv6 Address………: ::
    IP Address………………….:

    Then testing IPv4 connectivity throughout the total TSHOOT Topology:


    Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

    Request timed out.
    Reply from bytes=32 time=36ms TTL=122
    Reply from bytes=32 time=75ms TTL=122
    Reply from bytes=32 time=82ms TTL=122

    Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 3, Lost = 1 (25% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 36ms, Maximum = 82ms, Average = 64ms

    Showing that everything works 100% OK after solving PT TT#15

    I just want to say I absolutely love this site. I passed ROUTE and SWITCH all within the last 3 weeks, and I’m taking TSHOOT on the 28th.

    I’m going to wreck this test.. it’s going to be like a crime scene.

    Yes, The actual TT questions on the exam are almost all the same like the PT Tickets here on Net Tut – (That’s the whole point by developing and presenting them here)…

  32. Sam
    January 27th, 2015

    Just click @ the small “v” sign right next to the “Ticket Answers:” text at the bottom/center PT window (just below the PT workspace), to find TT Names & answers + tech notes and tips & tricks etc.!

  33. sunny
    January 29th, 2015

    what V are you reffering to i don’t see it. can you post screen shot?

  34. Buddy
    January 29th, 2015

    Just look after (and click on) the “v” at the RIGHT side of the PT “Ticket Answers:” MENU Text, located at the BOTTOM of the PT Screen (just at the RIGHT side of the PT Device Ikons there)!
    The PT TSHOOT “Ticket Answers:” Menu, is a Pull Down Menu where the individual Ticket Answers (1, 2 and 3) can be selected –
    The Menu also (quite often) contains usefull Tech Notes + Tips & Tricks for the Tickets!

  35. jon
    January 29th, 2015

  41. Trip
    April 1st, 2015

    Hi All Tshoot Winner,

    In these packets tracer files (Ticket 1 to 15 ) all configuration and error is same which is only ip helper-address . This is not right config. The right config should be ip helper-address

    Please recheck and update .


  42. Mark
    April 2nd, 2015

    Nope Trip – ALL provided PT Tickets are equipped w. CORRECT ip helper-address of:, and Thus NOT, which is a WRONG ip helper-address within the official TSHOOT Topology!
    Pls read further instructions within PT Ticket # 15 answer – it explains it all!
    For instructions on accessing PT Ticket answers, pls. study Post above by Jan 29, 2015 from Buddy.
