Hello,

the result is perfectly fine. Video mode means that the text-console you see in the screenshot above is primarily sent to the VGA output. On physical hardware this would mean the text console (and all kernel messages) would go to an attached monitor, in VMWare they will go to the console.

The other option is to send all output primarily to a serial output. MWG does not come with an X Server and/or a graphical console like Windows. You need a client PC and a browser and point it to the Web Interface, as Erik explained.

Best,

Andre

Connect your browser to

http://192.168.133.134:4711

You should choose Redhat 5 64-bit or Centos 5 64-bit for the VM guest OS.

Hello,

for the Web GUI admin/webgateway should work fine.

To start with Web Gateway there are several options. You could start with the following video series:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D56wGhy6qkk

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnU0Xh5_nIQ

to get a brief overview. You should also obtain a copy of the MWG 7 product guide, which is available from the contentsecurity.mcafee.com portal of from the KB at mysupport.mcafee.com.

You may also want to look at http://www.mcafeequickstart.com/ for more information about traning options.

I hope this helps.

Best,

Andre

If you modify any of the block templates you will get to the "template editor". On the left you can see all "templates" that currently exist, and a "file system" view. In the files ystem view you will find the index.htm which is used as a template for all the block pages which are displayed. You can also find the link to the McAfee Logo there:

You can upload new files like pictures by using the "Add"->"Existing file or directory" button. Once you added a picture, you can modify the link to point to the new file name.

In the UI, please try this:

Instead of "URL Filter" and "URL Blocked" you can use any  other rule set that contains a block action. Unfortunately there is no "global" button that opens the template editor for you, so you have to use a block action to get there.
