Installation of WANEM


WANEM is used to emulate WAN links. It is often used for testing applications over long distances with high delays and packet loss. You can use WANEM running on a physical or virtual machine using the Live CD Image provided here. You can use it as it is or you can install it on your hard disk so you don´t have to do the same configurations every time.

I will show you how to install WANEM on a virtual machine using Microsoft Hyper V.

By the way: I used WANEM v2.3.

The first step is to download the WANEM Image. You can download it from here.

Now you need to create a new virtual machine. I called my virtual machine “WanEm”, assigned 512MB RAM and created a new VHDX hard disk with 10GB capacity.Create_Virtual_Machine_0Create_Virtual_Machine_1Create_Virtual_Machine_2

Now go to you virtual machine´s settings. Since the default Network adapter Hyper V assigns to virtual machines will not work you need to remove it and replace it with a “Legacy Network Adapter“.

Now start you virtual machine and insert the WANEM Image you downloaded earlier.

You will be welcomed by the screen below. Press ENTER to continue.

Installation_Step_1

If you are asked if you want to configure all interfaces via DHCP choose no. You will need to configure a static IP address later so you can access the built-in website to configure WANEM.

Installation_Step_2

Hit ESC to Exit.

If you are asked for a password for the user perc just enter a new password and confirm it by retyping it.

Now exit to the Shell by typing

exit2shell

.

To start the installation enter

knx2hd

.

Installation_Step_5

Choose Partition.

Select your hard disk you created earlier. (Use SPACE to select the disk.)

Now create a new partition. I chose to use the Template.

Installation_Step_8

Installation_Step_9

Now choose Configure Installation.

Installation_Step_10

Now choose your system. I chose debian.

Installation_Step_11

Choose the partition you want to install your system to.

Installation_Step_12

Now you will be asked what filesystem-type you want to use. I chose ext3.

After that you will be asked to create a new user and assign that user a password. And you will be asked to assign a new password to the Administrator account (root). And you need to assign a computer name.

Installation_Step_14

Next you will be asked where you want to install the boot-loader. I chose mbr.

Installation_Step_15

Now you can choose Start Installation.

Installation_Step_016

Now is the last chance to check your configuration. If you hit Next the installation will start.

Installation_Step_17

After the installation process has finished you will be asked to insert a floppy into your floppydrive. Ignore this part and choose No.

Installation_Step_18

That´s it. The installation process was successful.

Now enter

reboot

.

Your machine is now ready to use.

If you don´t want to go through all these steps by yourself you can download the VHD Image I prepared for you from here.

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  2. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger,
    and I was curious about your situation; we have created some nice methods and we
    are looking to swap methods with other folks, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
