Running Cisco ASAv on EVE-NG

Published by Keyboard Banger on


For this you’ll need:

  • to install a EVE-NG home lab
  • get a ASAv image, in the format of asav{xxx}.qcow2

Here is a bunch of resources to help you do that:

At the end, note that:

  • in order to access the ASAv appliance through EVE-NG, you must use HTTPS and not HTTP.
  • the Vmware networking mode can be set to Bridged, and not necessarily to “NAT” as stated by all the videos. I used VMnet0 and have set it to “bridged”. In this case, when building a network item to connect ASAv to the host network, I chose cloud0 which corresponds to Vmnet0 card.
