That probably won't help, but I know why you are stuck, this is what you want to do. The real nic where the modem is plugged into on your pc, you assign any ip address with no gateway, that nic in vmware should be called "bridged" (it is on my linux machine anyways) the second nic on the real machine will get its ip via dhcp from the virtual machine its called "bridged2" in my vmware. Now the virtual nics go like this. In entangle if you have say a cable modem which assigns you an ip via dhcp, you would pick dhcp for the 1st nic, and the second you would leave static or give it whatever private ip range you want. Here's a pic anyways. (Basically you would setup untangle like you did when you had it on a stand alone machine.)





Oh btw as you can see I also installed FreeNas and have it working, it even got its ip via the untangle router, now to see how that OS works.

So you have 2 bridges running? That is the only way I can see this working in a virtual machine. I don't think vista can create multiple bridges so I'm hosed using Vista as my Host OS.

Is this how you have your VM setup?

Modem --> NIC1 =Bridge1= Virtual NIC1 (Untangle External NIC)
-------------------------------------------------------------
(Untangle Internal NIC) Virtual NIC2 =Bridge2= NIC2 --> LAN

Are you using vmware? If so then yes thats how I have it setup, although the nic1 where your modem goes becomes a dummy nic in vista.

I'm using VirtualBox. I'm creating the bridge in Vista. I end up having to bridge all 4 connections together, which I don't think is going to work. My cable modem is also being a little ***** about not releasing my DHCP lease and won't assign an IP to my second NIC when I plug it into my Vista box. I'll probably just mess with this more tomorrow. Thanks for the idea though. I was hoping to play around with Untangle before I start gutting computers to piece together a dedicated router box.

Not familiar with virtual box, but in vmware when you configured the nics as "bridged" it actually creates 2 separate nics in the VM with their own mac address, I don't actually do any bridging on the host machine running CentOS. On the host I just set a dummy ip on the WAN nic and dhcp on the LAN nic.

As far as I know, i'm good on processing power, I have 1.5gigs to go in this thing, which is more than I need. I have 360gigs of HDD's so storage isn't a problem, and my mobo has 2 NIC's already built in. I'm open to any OS, right now freeNAS is installed on this computer, but I don't mind formatting and starting over again.

As far as computers in the house, and I guess thinks accessing the internet, we have moms laptop, my laptop, my computer, the downstairs computer, the NAS box, and the PS3. With all those computers running I would imagine our router will start to get bogged down, we have a d-link di-624.

Thanks for the help Dman!

Running Untangle on a dedicate hardware.... my download speeds went from 16000kbps to 30000kbps. My upload went from 1200kbps to 9500kps.

I would recommend giving Untangle at least 800MB. I was running the included Spam/Spy/Virus filters, Firewall, and Reports. It was using around 700MB with that. Of course, you can also select a ligher weight distro that needs only 256MB.

I installed CentOS as my host operating system as it is enterprise class linux and super stable. No servers run on it though, I virtualized untangle and FreeNas using vmware 2.0. Makes it easier to back up configurations incase you screw one of the servers up by messing around. With virtual servers it just creates a folder, all you need to do is backup that folder, copy it back and re-import it and the server is back up. No more wasting hours re-installing and re-configuring stuff. FreeNas already has a vmware image file on their site, I just used that and imported it into vmware,, I had to change a few settings since it was made to run on a sun-solaris box.

Heh, thing is, I only get 2.5mb/s down . Man I wish we had internet service like yours!
