Cannot connect via Winscp

Here you can ask EVE-NG team to add new images to the list to play in lab.

Do not ask questions like "where I can get image x or Y" in that forum

Cannot connect via Winscp

Post by mikelibero » Wed Nov 22, 2017 4:08 pm

Hi,
I'm trying to setup my eve-ng for the first time now. Using:
Vmware 14
16gb ram
Intel core i5-5300 2.30GHz
Linux eve-ng 4.9.40-eve-ng-ukms-2+ #4 SMP Fri Sep 15 02:07:02 CEST 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

After successfull install Im trying to install Cisco IOS according to instruction, but cannot connect to my maschine with Winscp using FTP.
I get an error :
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
Connection failed.


Trying to connect with sftp - server reject sftp
Trying with FileZile - same issue.

No idea where to start to troubleshoot. Any idea what am I dooing wrong?

you have not installed IP of this EVE VM.
Please recheck video how to install EVE OVA and set IP
As well it can be your Antivirus who blocks everything

Thanks Uldis,
I saw that the installation went not exactly in the same way as in the Video you mentioned.
I was not ask to set the mask, dns and so on. After chosing static host ip I,ve configured the address but then the maschine went directly to the "proxy step"
Also the maschine didn't started automatically. I,ve restarted it alone but after that I see different ip address...but still I am able to log in to Eve with browser.
Im using no Antyvirus...i will try to install everything from the beginning..

no its not possible mate:)
you simply to fast clicked enter...
or not choose static IP setup..
if in wizard you leave dhcp then it immediately jump to proxy

Try again

Q: How to reset EVE management IP settings / DNS / NTP / Root password ?
A: from the EVE cli type: rm -f /opt/ovf/.configured. Then reboot and login from cli again. Your EVE will jump to initial setup wizard.

I believe you that I did something wrong, but I've installed eve from the beginning one more time and the situation saw almost the same :)
I definitely chose static IP but next step was "proxy settings" No question about mask and dns....the diffrent now is that I can connect with winscp, so the actual problem is solved.
I gonna make short video from the new installation when I find some time, and paste here link to YT, so you can maybe see what is going on :)
