have you always wanted to replace the default symbols in EVE-NG and use your own ? Today I will show you how to do this with little effort and even provide you with clear and beautiful blue network icons.
- installed and functional version of EVE-NG in your preferred environment
- running SSH-Server on port 22
- WinSCP or another SFTP-client
How to add your own symbols in EVE-NG
In the directory /opt/unetlab/html/images/icons are stored all the symbols you can select when adding a device in the lab in EVE-NG. Now you just need to have your own custom symbols in the png-format and in the size 52x52 pixels.
Now just start your preferred SFTP-program, mine is WinSCP, and connect via SSH to the directory and upload your symbols.
Adding provided blue network symbols
Download the network symbols as zip-file from The NetworkBergs Github and upload the zip-file to a random location in your EVE-NG machine via SFTP.
Now unzip the file in the EVE-NG machine with the following command via SSH.
Now move all the png-files in the correct directory for the symbols and we are finished !
before vs after
Here you can take a look at an example with the new symbols in comparison to the standard-symbols in EVE-NG.
I hope you have fun with the new symbols and my tutorial was useful : )
