Prework

  1. Download and install VirtualBox on your machine, we have tested versions 4.1.14
    • For convenience we have included the the Virtual Box software for popular operating systems in the USB stick.
    • If your computer runs Ubuntu 10.04 which comes with VirtualBox 3.1.6_OSE, please download the latest version of VirtualBox.
  2. Copy the VM image from the USB stick to your computer.
  3. Run VirtualBox and Import Appliance (File->Import Appliance), accept the default settings for the VM.
    • If you are using a FAT32 filesystem you will NOT be able to load the image.
  4. Start the VM and log in
  5. Change the default password, on the task bar on the top, click on the right on the user 'geni', and choose the Change Password button.
  6. Verify that the VM has connectivity. Start Firefox (shortcut on the top bar) and try to load Google. If you can't reach any website, restore VM's Network connection.
    • On the far right on the top bar, there is the network icon (two opposite facing arrows).
    • Click that icon and choose 'Auto eth0'.
    • Try loading the webpage again.
