Download the Untangle Server. You can then run any free or paid applications or packages. Paid applications and packages will install with a 14-day trial.
The Untangle Server needs a dedicated PC to run on. We recommend at least a Pentium 4 Processor (or a similar AMD processor), 80 GB hard drive, 2 network cards, and 1 GB of memory. See additional hardware details.
The PC does not need an operating system; the Untangle Server installs its own operating system. On installation, the Untangle Server completely erases any content or data that may exist on that PC's hard drive.
ISO images are mainly used as source files from which to create CDs. Older Windows operating systems may require the use of special software to burn ISO images.
You will need to download special software to burn the USB images.
Tip: Burn the image to two CDs so that you have a backup, or save the ISO image so that you can make a backup CD later.
Once you download the image ( .iso file) from Untangle's website, simply use ISO CD burning software to recreate the physical CD-ROM install media.
Tip: Double-clicking the downloaded .iso image file will likely launch your burner software with the image file preselected. When your burner software has launched, simply insert a blank disc and click the Write button.
To recreate the physical CD-ROM install media (using Burn At Once software):
ISO CD Burners :
|Windows||ISO Burner (Free)||Download|
|Windows||InfraRecorder (Open source)||Download|
|Windows||Burn At Once||Download|
|Windows/Vista||ISO Recorder (not tested by Microsoft)||Download|
To install from a USB drive:
Now it’s time to boot your dedicated PC using the image you just made. You will then run the install wizard and reboot the PC.
In order to install the Untangle Server onto an existing computer using an image, as outlined in the Untangle Server Quick Start Guide , you need to boot from the drive containing the image. If this is your first time booting from an alternate drive, have no fear. Do the following, but read all the steps before you perform the following procedure because precise timing is required:
To change the boot sequence:
Important: After you install the Untangle Server, the Untangle Server shuts down. When you turn it on again, repeat Steps 4-6 to change the boot sequence back to its original order so that the Untangle Server can boot from the hard drive. If you don"t, the Untangle Server boots from the selected drive thereby reinstalling the software.
Congratulations! You’ve sucessfully installed Untangle. Just click “Launch Client” and follow the instructions on your screen.
