Re: help me build on VMware demo MEG

I build my lab MEG systems with:

  • 2GB of RAM
  • 2 CPU cores
  • LSI Logic Parallel SCSI controller
  • 64 GB hard drive (thin provisioned to save space)
  • 2-3 VMXNET3 interfaces

With those settings it should install without any complaints.  If you need any decent performance, increase the memory a bit, and add extra disk space.  I can't remember at the moment what the VMWare limits are.

Does that answer the question?  If not, what specifically are you having an issue with?

Re: help me build on VMware demo MEG

What mode do you want to put the appliance in?  The modes and a desciption taken from the Quick Start Guide (for v7.0):

  • Transparent bridge mode — The appliance acts as an Ethernet bridge.
  • Transparent router mode — The appliance acts as a router.
  • Explicit proxy mode — The appliance acts as a proxy server and a mail relay.

Which mode you choose will change how the system is placed in your network.  My preferred method is the Explicit Proxy, as all internet traffic won't go down if the MEG does, but you need to choose what would work best for your network.

As far as testing spam through the system, check out KB article KB76608.
