Question:
How to Setup ann101i Network Bridge?

I can download ann101i from this URL:

https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/ann101bucket/ann101i.ova

I collected some screen shots as I started it up on my laptop.





This image gets to the heart of the matter:



I want to connect ann101i to the internet

To do this I form this picture in my mind:

ann101i -> myLaptop -> Internet

The above ASCII art tells me I need to configure two connections.



The first connection is easy to setup.

I click open tab2 which is called Adapter2.

Then I click two checkboxes: Enable Network Adapter and Cable Connected.

The second connection requires that I know how my laptop is connected to the internet.

My laptop is usually connected via ethernet cable or WIFI.

On this particular laptop ethernet cable corresponds to 'eth9'.

Sometimes it is other names like eth0 or eth1.

If my laptop is connected to internet via WIFI, then the connection might be called something like: wlan0

On a Mac, the connections might be called ... en1: WiFi (airport) or en0: Ethernet



So that should setup the second part of the network bridge.

Next, I should be able to start ann101i and it should then be connected to the internet.



The password for both the ann account and the root account is the single letter: 'a'.





















The above images were useful to a student who needed to install ann101i into VirtualBox on a Mac.
