Server and Domain Isolation Demo VM’s

Thanks to Dugie for bring this to my attention – there is a great server and domain isolation demo set of virtual machines available for download here:

Now, there are two reasons why you should check this demo out:

  1. It is a great ‘ready to go’ demo of why you want to use IPSec in your environment.  We use it here at Microsoft corporate – and it is in my personal opinion (as an ex-IT administrator) absolutely wonderful. 
  2. Even though it is a 5 VM demo (AD Server, secure server, boundary server, trusted client, rogue client) the download is a mere 256mb.  Read that one again and go download it now.

Of course – the magic of this particular VM set was put together by one of our virtual machine MVPs (one of the first two virtual machine MVPs actually): Ronald Beekelaar.

My hat is off to you Ronald – I have already showed this setup to a number of people on the team internally 🙂

Cheers,
Ben
