Leave defaults: “Bridged Networking”
The Virtual Appliance will be imported. This will take a few minutes. When finished press close

The server should boot up in less than a minute. When prompted login in with username: red5 password: password.
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.
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)
The server is now ready to go.
