EVE-NG Integration releases

This repo contains the equivalent of EVE-NG (aka UNetLab) Windows Client Side Pack for Ubuntu/Debian and other Linux distros.

Currently supports the following URL schemes:

  • telnet://
  • capture://
  • docker://
  • vnc:// (via Vinagre)

Includes a script to work with .rdp files that are generated by EVE-NG.




Ubuntu and derivatives

You can install eve-ng-integration from the official PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:smartfinn/eve-ng-integration
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install eve-ng-integration

or download .deb packages from here.

Install script

Alternatively, you can install eve-ng-integration from terminal using the following command:

wget -qO- | sh

This method works on most Linux distros. Tested on Arch Linux, Manjaro, Fedora, openSUSE, CentOS, and potentially works with other systems.

If your Linux distribution is not supported yet, don't give up, try Manual install or open a new issue.

Known issues

  1. Error Couldn't run /usr/bin/dumpcap in child process: Permission denied when starting Wireshark

    Add your user to wireshark group:

    sudo usermod -a -G wireshark $USER

    If you use a Debian-like distro, you can run the next command and choose answer as Yes:

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common

    You will need to log out and then log back in again for this change to take effect.

  2. Error End of file on pipe magic during open when starting Wireshark

    Install ssh-askpass package for your distro, or setup SSH key-based authentication with EVE-NG (UNetLab) machine.

  3. Click on a node does not open an app (opens another app) in all browsers

    Execute the following commands to set the eve-ng-integration.desktop as default handler for telnet, capture, and docker URL schemes:

    mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications/
    xdg-mime default eve-ng-integration.desktop x-scheme-handler/capture
    xdg-mime default eve-ng-integration.desktop x-scheme-handler/telnet
    xdg-mime default eve-ng-integration.desktop x-scheme-handler/docker
    xdg-mime default eni-rdp-wrapper.desktop application/x-rdp
  4. Does not work in Google Chrome but works in another browser

    Quit Chrome and reset protocol handler with the command:

    sed -i.orig 's/"\(telnet\|capture\|docker\)":\(true\|false\),\?//g' "$HOME/.config/google-chrome/Default/Preferences"

    NOTE: Path to the Preferences file will be different for Chromium and other Chromium-based browsers.

  5. Does not work in Firefox but works in another browser

    Go to Preferences → Applications (or paste about:preferences#applications in your address bar) and change Action to Always ask for telnet, capture and docker Content Types.

  6. Firefox says The address wasn't understood when you clicked on a node

    • Type about:config into the Location Bar (address bar) and press Enter.
    • Right-click → New → Boolean → Name: network.protocol-handler.expose.telnet → Value → false (Repeat this for each supported protocol)
    • Next time you click a link of protocol-type foo you will be asked which application to open it with.

  7. Chrome/Chromium downloads RDP files instead of opening

    To make RDP file open on your browser, instead of downloading, you have to download the file type once, then right after that download, look at the status bar at the bottom of the browser. Click the arrow next to that file and choose "Always open files of this type". Done.
