Looking for your experience with the best settings for a smooth software testing environment in various OSes. How many cores, allotment of RAM, HD size and type etc.
Windows, 7, 10 as well as Windows Server 2016, Tails, and Mint. I have a 6850k, 32GB of DDR4 3200, and a GTX 1070TI.
I’ve been running VMs on a spindle drive, just recently moved to an SSD….yeah that’s embarrassing hence why I am here making sure I haven’t missed something else hampering my performance.
Also, wanted to check in with the latest PFSense setup. I always had trouble getting my VMs online and secure since my workstation that has vmware uses a VPN. Seemed to only be able to connect if I let the VM bypass the VPN an get an IP directly from my ISP. I guess what I am trying to say is that given my workstation in behind a VPN and I want to run a VM securely, what are the recommended approaches?
Thanks for reading!
