In this framework, we got more than 58 tools installed by default and can be installed on more than 100 tools from the server (2.3 TB  archives).

This tool comes with two versions:

  • Lite
  • Pro

In this tutorial, we provide a pro key for our readers.


Let’s start installing it.

We can easily install it on  Kali Linux or Parrot OS. It needs root permission to run it.

First, we open our terminal and type the following command to clone it from the GitHub.

git clone

The screenshot of the command is the following:

clonning from github

Now we go inside the directory of our downloaded tool by using cd command:

cd ehtools

Here we got an installer bash script. We need to grant the permission of the installer script by using the following command:

chmod +x

Then we can install this framework by running the bash script.

sudo ./

The screenshot is following.

version selection

We type pro and hit enter.
Then we need to provide the pro key either bought from Ehtools site or use our key (Will work for everyone).

Please read the pro key from the Screenshot

Now type the pro activation key from the above screenshot and hit enter.

Then it will ask for our desktop environment. We are using Kali Linux’s default Desktop environment Xfce so we type it and hit enter.

Now it will configure the tool and prompts for some configuration settings, everything will be fine just read those and choose yes or no.

Even it prompts for a security login but in our case we got this error.

Operation not permitted

But it’s installed successfully and works well without any trouble.

After the installation process is done we can type sudo ehtools command to run this.

sudo ehtools

And it prompts for our network interfaces (for the first time running) to keep it default we press “Enter”.

Then Ehtools will open it’s main menu in front of us.

We can use its options to save our time in penetration testing jobs, or in a race condition.

It has lots of options in it, even an error solving option (after all we are pro users 🌝).
