VMware OpenBSD suitable as gateway?
Hi, I have recently installed VMware on my Windows XP Pro machine, and downloaded the OpenBSD vm file. If I was to only use Windows to boot (i.e. once booted, vmware loads, boots OpenBSD, Windows never used again till shutdown) would the security/server implemenations of the OpenBSD os be affected?
If the VM version takes control of networking over Windows, I would assume it would be as if it was only OpenBSD running.
What would be the recommended course of action? Should I simply buy fresh components, install OpenBSD as the only os, and dedicate it? Or would my XP version running it perform the same?
Naturally I'm new to this, so I want to take the most secure, stable and reliable route as possible.
Thanks in advance
