For type of source, select Virtual Appliance

Clipboard04

Press Browse and navigate to the red4server.ovf file

Clipboard05

Click Next on the Virtual Appliance details page

Accept license agreement

Clipboard07

For destination select the type of platform you are running. In this case we will select Other Virtual Machine.

Enter a name for your inventory and a directory where you want the vm files to be stored

Leave defaults: “Import and Convert (full-clone)” and “Allow virtual disk to expand”

The Virtual Appliance will be imported. This will take a few minutes. When finished press close

Clipboard14

Press the green start button to power on the virtual appliance

Clipboard15

The server should boot up in less than a minute. When prompted login in with username: red5 password: password.

Clipboard16

Carefully follow instructions to change password. Note: you must first enter the default password and then enter a new password twice to change it.

To change password at a later time enter the command passwd at the command prompt.

Clipboard18

Carefully follow instructions to set static ip address. Note: you will need to enter your password again for network changes to take effect.

To change your ip address in the future, you will need to edit the /etc/network/interfaces files and to change DNS /etc/resolv. In order for changes to take effect enter the command /etc/init.d/networking restart (or just reboot)

Clipboard23

The server is now ready to go.
