It just appeared on the main product page recently....Barracuda Spam Firewall Vx and also offering the SSL VPN as a virtual appliance. Very little detail on how they work with existing products or what level of features are included.

- time drift is a huge issue with Linux under vmware unless you ntp time sync very often or fine tune the kernel settings- the vmware EXi native virtual nic has much higher performance than the emulated default nic- some vm host info can not be gathered without the toolsSo I know I would not be thrilled about the tools not being installed or having it as an option.

http://www.barracudanetworks.com/vm would be a good place to start. (or the 'available for vmware' button on the spam firewall page, that works too)

Was a bit of a lazy question on my part, I was just shocked to suddenly see mention of it - I have long considered just virtualising one of my current boxes, but deicded it probably wouldn't be legal anymore!I found the details after I posted it.Cheers

Did you ever get an answer for this? VMs without VMware tools installed can create all sorts of little problems in a well oiled ESX cluster.
