Freesco router for VMware

If you aren’t already using FREESCO in your sandbox it’s a tremendous application and allows you to stage  multisite application implementations and upgrades easily in fairly conservative virtual environments.

This link details setting the application up to work properly in vmware. Alternately just go here and download a working OVF: http://www.screencast.com/users/esloof/folders/FREESCO

It’s really useful for firewall labs and topology changes etc. The VM itself uses practically no resources (its perfectly happy with 12-16mb), is hugely robust and has a mind-boggling array of features. Combined with the VMWare Workstations bandwidth limitation for the virtual networks possible to look at how applications perform over varying quality connections to other sites.
