Starting Point 2.0 (Eve-NG installation) – 5.3.2019

Umm.. yeah, bro. I had a blog before. I had different priorities at the time, but now I’m back at it. You got beef? Or are you vegan?

Today, I have Eve-NG configured on the Google Cloud Platform… This ended up being a total waste of time. More about this later (See my GNS3 post).

My total cost was roughly $90/month. With me shutting the server down when I didn’t use it, the monthly cost was $20… It became more of a hassle. I deleted my compute instance and moved on.

I subscribed to INE’s All Access Pass. This was great, because for me, I paid $300(ish) about three years ago for their CCNA class, and this meant that I would have all of their classes for $99/month. I plan to have my employer pick up the tab in the new year if I end up liking the subscription.


If you’re installing Eve-NG on Google Cloud Platform, you may need to use the following:

##Community Edition installation repo command
wget -O - http://www.eve-ng.net/repo/install-eve.sh | bash -i 

If you’re like me and pre-installed the pro version, then you’ll need this:

## To roll back from EVE-NG Pro to the Community Edition, issue the following commands in the CLI of EVE

> apt install eve-ng eve-ng-guacamole

> systemctl disable docker

> systemctl disable docker.service

> systemctl stop docker.service

> systemctl disable udhcpd

## Reboot EVE

Finally, do not forget about the license files!!
