Some Mikrotik and RouterOS Links to get it running on ESXi for experimental purposes.

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/27

RouterOS runs on many kinds of hardware. Of course on the MikroTik hardware itself (which always comes with a license), but also on x86 hardware, even virtualized systems.

In that respect, it looks a bit like pfSense, or Endian, but on steroids and closed source.

Here are some links focused on MikroTik  on ESXi (which is great for experimental purposes):

How to Mount and Unmount ISO Files in Windows 8+ (via: TheUnlockr)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/27

Sound of facepalm hitting my head, as I totally by accident found out that as of Windows 8 (un)mounting of ISO files is built into Windows.

Mounting

  1. Open the folder where you’ve stored your ISO file.
  2. Right-click on the ISO and select Mount
  3. You’ll now see the ISO mounted inside your Computer.
  4. That’s it!

Unmounting:

  1. Open Computer on your PC.
  2. Right-click on the virtual drive that was created while mounting ISO file and select Eject.
  3. The drive disappears after the ISO image is “ejected”.
  4. That’s it!

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/27

IBM isn’t all about dry corporate stuff and sometimes hard to read redbook documentation (:

I love the way they lead you do build your own VI cheat sheet step by step in vi intro — the cheat sheet method.

It is basically a vi tutorial that helps you to build up your own cheat sheet.

VMware Workstation 10, VMware Player 6 Regular/Plus, VMware Fusion 6 Regular/Pro: what to choose? (via: VMware Workstation 10 released Sept. 4 2013, but you might be fine with the free VMware Player 6 Plus | TinkerTry IT @ home)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/27

There is an interesting post by TinkerTry IT @ home | VMware Workstation 10 released Sept. 4 2013, but you might be fine with the free VMware Player 6 Plus that helped me making up my decision what to buy.

Basically you have these products on the non-server side of things:

(Note: you can find many downloads through Google search for site:www.vmware.com/go)

I bought these:

  • VMware Fusion 6
  • VMware Workstation 10

My reasoning: Read the rest of this entry »
