hey experts, my first question here.
trying to  test packetfence Network Access Control software, but it is Linux based and I am Windows guy :-)
I downloaded ZEN vmware appliance from http://www.packetfence.org/download/vmware_appliance_zen.html and having difficulties getting it up. There is no real guide there, things like "make sure you have it properly blah blah" doesnt tell me much- what commands do I use? I installed VMware player 4, downloaded and unzipped appliance and started it up. I cannot ping my VM and anything from my VM. I know few Linux commands, found IP address using "ifconfig" but whats next?

You could try running this command to see if the version you downloaded has a built-in "configurator":

root@localhost pf]# cd /usr/local/pf/ && ./configurator.pl

yes there was and I went through it to the end. I think packetfence ZEN comes pre-configured though. Still cannot ping any of the IPs. I have feeling that its something wrong with VM player
