vmware use and possible risks
« on: August 24, 2015, 01:05:27 AM »

I was using different computers or VPS for each friend but i am moving to a new office with a very powerful desktop and i would like to check the vmware option but i have some questions before starting this :

1. Is it safe to have all friends + base account(with alert services) to a single desktop?
2. If I setup a vm running windows 7 , 8.1 or 10 for each friend will i have any risk to be identified as a single user if every vm is only used for web browsing for each friend?
3. Is there any special network setup needed (mac address , etc)
4. Each vm will run vpn or elite proxy in order to access the internet with different ip address. Is there anything in addition to be checked?
5. Is there any problem if a link is copied from the main user to the vm machines?
6. Can I use different monitor for each user without using a multi-port graphics card? I don't like multi windows ,prefer extra monitors.

Any additional comments - suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks

None replied for more that 3 months.
I paid a pro ,made the setup and had all my questions answered.
I suggest you to do the same and keep this forum only for fun since really useful info simply don't exist or not shared..

If two wrongs don't make a right, try three.

Hi Looter,

Thanks for the update. I agree, really useful info is heals back a lot. But don't give up.

I've been looking around for the same type of info. I've just set up a vpn and have seperate (cheap) laptops for each different account because I'm not so tech savy. It also helps me keep from accidentally using the wrong account on the wrong screen.

Also I am running a different os on each one. I hope your setup works well, good luck  :)

5. Is there any problem if a link is copied from the main user to the vm machines?

>> Generally no problem. Only if link contains some userid but in betting bussiness I didn't see that.

Only problem that I can see is human error. So be carefull, do not login at some machine with wrong account.

Wow. So you expect people to answer your questions but once you get the answers elsewhere you keep it for yourself and don't answer the same question from others? That's very funny.

If you want useful info regarding vpn and vps you can search my post history , I have covered this topic . For the current topic none shared anything , tried to make the setup alone and failed so I hired a pro. End of story.
