Burning the ISO Image
The ISO image is prepared to perform the boot from a DVD reader, USB device or as an ISO file for a virtual machine.
In order to burn the ISO image from a Linux system to a USB device, the following command needs to be used if the USB device is mapped in /dev/sdd:
[root@machine ~]# dd if=redBorder-3.1.80-11-x86_64-6.5-proxy.iso of=/dev/sdd bs=10M
Installing the ISO
Once you have booted the redborder ISO, you will see the installation menu. To perform the installation, select the option: Install Client Proxy:
Once in the installation process, you only need to confirm the installation destination and root password (by default, the root password will be redborder).
NOTE: Redborder is prepared for unattended installations, so you should be especially careful with the time you have to respond to these three questions if you wish to modify the default options.
You can configure the IP of the proxy manually or through DHC.
The cloud address field can have an IP (belonging to the redborder manager), or a redBorder Live domain. In this case the redBorder Live domain will be used.
If you wish, you can enter each of the required parameters manually (as shown in the image).
- IP Address: client proxy IP address
- Netmask: client proxy Netmask
- Gateway: client proxy Gateway
- Nameserver: client proxy DNS
