Hi guys,

I have same doubts. I have passed the written and want to continue to the LAB. I have an access to INE and have several rack rental tokens, I have been practicing with them for the last year following the advanced technologies path. But nowadays I want practice too with the SPOTO labs that you can find in the forum.

What will be the best approach for this? I think these files (SPOTO and others) are prepared for running under IOU Web. And also I think several are ported to EVE-NG by people like us preparing these exams.

Would it be possible to load these configurations/scenarios to for example INE Rack-Rentals with not to much effort? I think you won't be able to do that and also you won't be able to have the topology on an image, click to access the routers, etc. Because of this I am planning in moving now to IOU or EVE to practice this mock labs from SPOTO. What do you think? I still have some rack rental tokens so I could continue using INE but don't know the best approach.

I started with rack rentals but switched to iouweb to pass for my number.  rack rentals were too inconvenient and you can't make the custom labs that you'll want to create.  I will probably be switching to Eve NG to continue my studies.  Rack rentals are great to learn a concept though, to break a concept down to the simplest form, in my opinion, if you have a gap in your understanding of a technology.

EVE and IOU are perfect for CCIE RNS and Security, i am not sure about other area's.
