    Oracle Database Firewall re-images the server on installation and installs Oracle Linux automatically.

    There is a step-by-step video tutorial on installation & configuration available here:

    Hi there,

    I am trying to install the DBFW in a virtual environment and have successfully completed the steps until "ORACLE Database Firewall Tutorial - Part4: Integration Standalone Firewall With Management Server". What befuddles me more is to how did we get from Part 1 to Part 4 without being able to configure *network settings" on each of the three VMs listed below ?
    1. FWMS (Management Server)
    2. DBFW (Firewall with three network interfaces)
    3. Analyzer (Windows Server 2008 R2 VM)

    I am using VM Workstation 8 and the latest updated editions of DBFW and compatible Oracle Enterprise Linux. I created a host-only network on VMWare and I am able to connect (more specifically ping) FMWS from Analyzer. I put every single interface on DBFW on the same subnet, which I think is part of the problem. I didn't understand the phrase "in-line" as described in

    Please help me in getting the VMs to talk to each other so that we can proceed further to creating a DBFW demo environment on VMware.

    Ok i understood your problem.
    On your DBFW VM, the first and the second sockets should be Host Only and the third one Internal. (Better try using VirtualBox)
    Tell me if you got the network install screen at DBFW.
    If you entered network correctly then enter the IP address in the browser of the host machine and you'llget the log in screen.
    Write me for further info.
