 6c99433660431fbfa611009037fb1033
 On
Windows
you
can
download
the
command
line
version
of
MD5
from:
 http://www.fourmilab.ch/md5/
 and
run
the
command
line
against
the
file
you
downloaded
 On
*nix
systems
(this
includes
OSX),
you
can
just
run
the
md5
command.
 Step
9:
 
 Click
Next
 Step
10:
 
 Read
over
the
EULA,
if
you
agree
to
the
terms,
select
the
Yes,
I
accept
the
terms
in
 the
license
agreement
radio
button,
and
click
on
Next
 Remember
to
read
over
the
EULA
carefully
so
that
you
understand
the
terms
of
use
 for
the
software.
This
is
especially
true
if
you
plan
to
use
the
software
in
a
 production/for
profit
environment.
 Step
11:
 
 Click
Next
 Advance:
 You
may
change
the
default
install
location
of
VMware
Server
to
anywhere
you
like.
 Keep
in
mind
that
the
installation
will
require
1.7GB
of
space,
and
the
installation
 file
is
600MB.
This
is
also
before
you
create
any
virtual
machines.


 For
safety,
15GB
of
free
space
is
a
good
idea.
The
number
15GB
was
obtain,
from
the
 2.0
GB
used
for
VMware
server
plus
3
x
4.0GB
virtual
machines.
The
last
1GB
is
used
 for
the
Host
OS.
 Step
12:
 
 Use
the
default
seetings
you
see
on
the
screen
and
click
Next
 Note:
A
proper
FQDN
would
be
google.com.
In
the
example
picture,
^_^
is
NOT
a
 proper
FQDN
name.
By
default
VMware
Server
installation
would
use
your
computer
 name
as
a
FQDN,
you
can
use
the
default
name
that
installation
wizard
chooses.


 Your
FQDN
on
this
screen
would
be
different
from
the
example
picture.
The
only
thing
 that
would
be
the
same
would
be
the
default
ports
VMware
server
uses.

 Advance:
 During
the
installation,
VMware
server
will
install
Java
and
Apache
Tomcat.
This
is
 how
VMware
Server
allows
the
administrator
to
manage
the
virtual
machines
 through
the
web
browser.
 Ports
for
HTTP/HTTPS
can
be
changed
to
the
default
port
of
80/443.
On
Windows
 systems,
be
sure
that
your
firewall
Is
willing
to
accept
these
incoming
connections
if
 you
plan
to
allow
remote
management.

 Step
13:
 
 Click
Next
 Advance:
 You
may
uncheck
any
of
these
shortcuts
if
you
know
exactly
where
to
start
the
 application
if
you
need
to
do
so.

Generally
it
is
a
good
idea
to
keep
the
Start
Menu
 Programs
folder
checked
so
that
you
can
recall
some
of
the
Tomcat
configuration
 quickly. Step
14:
 
 Click
Next
 Notes:
 If
for
any
reason
you
feel
that
you
need
to
change
some
settings
do
so
now,
before
 the
files
are
copied
over. Step
15:
 
 Just
wait
for
the
installation
to
complete.

 Step
15a:
 
 Sometimes
your
firewall
would
detect
new
networks,
and
would
as
if
you
would
 allow
communication
to
these
networks.

Click
accept/trust
for
this
new
network
 that
is
created.
There
should
be
2
new
networks.
 Advance:
 What
is
happening
is
that
VMware
Server
created
2
additional
NICs
on
top
of
the
 host
operating
system.

These
two
NICs
will
host
the
NAT/Private
network
 connections
for
your
virtual
machines.
 NAT:
Usually
the
Local
Area
Network
#2,
which
is
created
with
VMware
is
the
NAT
 controller.
All
the
virtual
machines
will
treat
the
host
computer
as
the
gateway
to
 the
outside
network.
This
is
a
good
method
to
test
security
without
interference
 from
the
outside
network.
 Private:
Usually
Local
Area
Network
#3,
which
is
created
for
a
private
connection
 between
the
host
computer
and
VMs.

If
you
want
to
test
some
security
tools
that
 can
cause
harm
to
the
entire
network,
it
is
best
to
practice
on
a
private
network
that
 has
no
link
the
production
environment.

 Step
16:
 
 Enter
the
information
for
Name
and
Company.
Then
enter
the
serial
number
that
 you
obtained
through
email
from
VMware.
 Notes:
 The
only
thing
that
is
most
important
here
is
the
serial
number.
The
 Name/Company
is
not
very
important. Step
17:
 
 Click
Finish.
 
 Step
18:
 
 VMware
Server
requires
a
reboot
of
the
computer.
Make
sure
to
save
all
open
files,
 and
close
any
applications
before
you
reboot.
Click
Yes.
 Step
19:

 
 Open
your
web
browser
and
goto
https://localhost:8333
.

 If
this
is
the
first
time
at
the
page
and
you’re
using
Firefox,
click
on
the
Or
you
can
 add
an
exception
link.
 
 Step
20:
 
 After
clicking
the
link,
click
on
the
button
Add
Exception
 
 Step
21:
 
 Click
on
Get
Certificate.
Then
click
on
Confirm
Security
Exception.
 
 Step
22:
 
 You
should
be
done
and
will
be
able
to
log
into
the
server.
