build untangle VM with virt-manager
OS type : Linux
Version : Debian Lenny
Please note that untangle requires at least two NICs. So before installing untangle , please add two vNICs or more.
the installation is very easy .. just click , click ..
untangle requires at least two NICs.
In my environment , I added only one vNIC.
shutdown the untangle VM , add one more vNIC which means that the untangle VM has two vNICs totally , and boot the VM again.
OMG , the VM has not recognized the vNIC I added after the installation..
I still face the same error after adding one more vNIC and rebooting the VM.
Okay , I’ll reinstall untangle..
build the VM again.
add two vNICs before the installation and then start the installation.
select the network topology. one is router mode , the other is bridge mode.
okay , I finished the initial setup.
The following is the Web GUI.
