hello all. I, being new to the fabulous world of pen testing am now looking into setting up a lab with something like xenserver, but have a few noob questions.. 1. if i set up a bunch of VMs on a xenserver and connect that server to my home network via an ethernet connection, can i actually attack those VMs from a real world linux machine on the same real network, or only from another virtual machine on the xenserver? 2. what are the best options hardware and price wise for the xen server? I was looking at the really cheap ($99) Kangaroo by intel.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883722001&cm_mmc=unlocked-_-article-_-kangaroopc-_-NA Idon't know if any of you have played with this little "pc." and I am wondering if you can actually ditch windows 10 on it and install xenserver. another option might be this little guy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883254005 .. I know Darren and Shannon did a little diddy on using a nuc for xenserver, but being so uncertain about whether xenserver can do everything i want (see question 1), i really don't want to drop $600 (call me a cheapo, but i have spent a lot of money latly on this new little hobby) Thanks to anyone who cares to take the time to educate this noob. sincerely, onus
I watched Hak5 1818 and 1819 a few weeks ago thinking it was the current Hak5 and I became obsessed. Being a noob, I immediately proceeded to build a home lab on a nuC6i7KYK, maxed ram and a 250gb drive. It took me about a week to brute force my education on XenServer and Xen Orchestra. I've got them both up and am running a few VM's. This is when I realized I have this awesome piece of hardware running a headless server. This is where I need some advice: Is it possible to build a front end on the nuc so I can utilize it as a daily desktop while keeping XenServer running under the hood or do I need to install a distro first then run XenServer on top? Don't get me wrong running a VM through console is pretty cool, it just I feel a little stupid buying a 4k monitor to look at XenServer's customize System menu.
