So is this Router Mode?: Diagram5.jpeg
Brian if you look in the hacking forum there are several posts that outline the procedure for installing the VMWare tools. You can install the ISO of Untangle directly in a VM, just use the Debian 5 preset, 32bit or 64bit of course based on your deployment choice. Untangle runs just fine without the VMWare tools.
If you need further assistance please start your own thread.
J2897 that images doesn't have enough information on it to imply router or bridge operation. You need to understand what layer of the OSI stack you're using here, I can't tell you that. That is networking 101 you're going to have to understand yourself before you will make any progress.
You mean the ubunto linux presets? There is no debian presets in the list, unless I go with other.

When I boot the Untangle VM for the first time, is the DHCP Enabled by default?
Assuming the answer to Question #1 is 'yes', what will the default IP address be to access the Untangle GUI? I ask because there will obviously be no Monitor (VDU).
I have a feeling that a Bridge is a Layer 4, and a Router and a Switch are both Layer 3. So I'm going to have to assume that I'm using Layer 3 of the OSI stack (I don't have a Bridge, just a Switch connected to a PC and the ESXi host - and the ESXi host is also connected to a Modem). And therefore, I'm going to have to assume, that I am in Router Mode and that the Untangle Virtual Appliance is also set up by default as Router Mode.
... I'm going to sleep. I'll have another read of Wikipedia tomorrow, but I really don't remember anything about an OSI Stack when I set the Physical Untangle Server up.
