Bring up a Site VM

Step 1/3 Launch VM


Download VM appliance (VirtualBox or VMware) from Software menu. Note: you can reuse the downloaded image at multiple sites.


Import the .ova appliance to your hypervisor software. For example, with Virtualbox, you can do the following:

Setup bridged networking

Your VM needs to attach to an local interface of the host machine in bridged mode. Set the interface appropriately.

Setup IP address

The Sproute Gateway VM needs an IP address for forwarding. In normal setting, it would automatically acquire an IP address from the Internet edge router, via DHCP. For easier operation, we recommend reserving the DHCP IP address through MAC address mapping (refer to your Internet gateway manual).
