Router/Firewall on Hyper-V? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm wondering If I could consolidate my Linux router/firewall (smoothwall) into Hyper-V freeing up another computer from running all the time. I don't have much experience with virtual machines, but here is my question. Would I need to install the Linux OS as a guest OS in Hyper-V? Also, the Linux machine has 2 network cards red(internet) green(lan). Would I need to put those 2 physical cards in the 2008 server? When I install Linux, would it find the cards if it's running through Hyper-V?
