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.

You can add applications you’d like to use over the internet.
Some packages are free of charge , some are commercial.
