Just another person frustrated with trying this :)
It does seem that this guy has found a way though SmoothWall Express 3.0 under Hyper-V - Virtual PC Guy's WebLog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
Looks like our SEGFL are going smoothwall this weekend, but I would much rather have a virtualized version than another box sitting in our server room.
MAC address spoofing was probably the only thing I hadn't tried. Sadly for me, I gave up/caved in and purchased the applience in the end
Now were in Q1 - 2011, any news about hyper-v support?
Tried looking around the site but couldn’t find anything..
There's a new kernel coming out this week (or that will be the start of staged release), which does a better job of hyper-v. I say better job... it is probably the best we can hope for in terms of the drivers etc. but installation may still require a little manual tickling, and we don't know for sure wether this will give good enough performance (we know it will be better... but better enough is hard to tell until it is in customer hands).
