Hello everyone, I have just been given the green light to invite people to my Networks class on
Thursday night July 31, 2008 from 5:30PM to 7:30PM
in Room 228 of the Commerce and Finance building at the University of Detroit Mercy McNichols campus.
Therefore I am inviting Detroit members of both BDPA and NSBE. Please spread the word to other members, because I know I forgot some people.
The topic will be a demonstration on how to use VMWare within a Network Environment.
I will go over installation, using VM images, running Frenzy BSD and some variation of Knoppix for running security services on a network, testing Network services with virtual machines before deployment (Fedora and XAMMP), and how the concept of backing up functional virtual machines, before a good one is lost. Time permitting I may even throw in a FreeDOS demonstration running a couple old DOS games, just as a way of changing things up. If you find this of interest please let me know, and from there I can decide whether or not its worth it to make arrangements for refreshments. I should also have a flyer for this done by the end of the week.
