but if you login in eve

if not, your network is not ok

Hi @ccieaa

I ran into the same issue. I think it's a bug of the latest EVE-NG Community version or something related.
I was able to solve this issue with the following workaround:

1.When you configure the Management IP through the Configuration Wizard, select the DHCP option (Do Not select the Static option because you will run into the same issue again)

2.Once you finish and you access the emulator with the DHCP IP, then modify the file:

# vi /etc/network/interfaces

3. You should only modify the eth0 interface on the file. Here's a config sample of what I used in my case:

# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet manual
auto pnet0
iface pnet0 inet static
bridge_ports eth0
bridge_stp off

4. Sace the change

5. Restart the NIC so that it can take effect the new config. Use the command below:

# /etc/init.d/networking restart

6. You should now be able to access your emulator with the new Static IP.

I hopw that this guide is clear and that it works as it has worked for me.

Good luck :D

This is the exact solution.
I've been surfing the internet for days to find this answer.
Thank you.
