Installing ViBE Firmware onto a Virtual Machine


Requirements
Before you start, please ensure that:

The host machine is running VMware ESXi (5.1 or higher).

vSphere client is installed on your PC.

You have an available unique public IP address to assign to your ViBE server and GSM
Gateway (if needed).

Step-by-Step Procedure
1) Download the setup files. The ViBE server setup files are available on the Voipex FTP server.
ftp://ftp.vibesupport.com
Username:
vmware
Password:
vmw4r3v01p3x
(The OVF ViBE firmware image file is contained in the ViBE-ESXi.zip file).
2) Connect to the host machine using vSphere.

server is called ViBE Appliance.

You now need to configure the WAN interface IP address and default Gateway of the ViBE server.
7) Select the Console tab to access the virtual machine.

8) Click on the console window to access the command prompt. To get out of the console
window press Ctrl-Alt.
The default gateway and IP address now need to be configured so that the server can be accessed via
the internet.
To configure the IP address, enter the command:ifconfig eth0 public.ip.address netmask netmask
For example:
ifconfig eth0 188.146.156.101 netmask 255.255.255.0
The default gateway now needs to be configured. Use the following command:route add default gw default.gateway.ip.address
The ViBE server can now be accessed via the Web browser.

Go to a web browser and enter the public IP address of the ViBE server.
The default login is admin and vmwarev1b3.
Once you have logged in you need to configure the WAN network to have the IP address previously
configured in the console window (this is because all settings configured in the web browser take
precedence over those configured on the command line). All settings configured via the command line
will be overwritten by the browser-based settings once any of them are changed. Therefore the WAN
IP address needs to be configured immediately to prevent loss of access via the internet.

Licenses
Any new VMware installations benefit from a valid evaluation license for 60 days. Unlimited licenses
are also available free on the VMware website:
https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/p/landing.php?p=free-esxi5
You can register an account for free. Once you have done this, login to your account and you will then
be provided with a license key as well as download links for vSphere and ESXi
Once you have received your license, you will need to apply it to the host machine. This needs
to be done in vSphere.
1) Select your host machine (not the ViBE appliance).
2) Go to Configuration > license features and click Edit on the far-right of that window.
The edit window will pop up as shown below.

3) Enter the license key in the window shown.
