A web service to generate a VMWare View TC iso
« on: June 16, 2012, 12:09:38 PM »
http://repurpose.vmwaredotg.com/
http://mattlesak.com/virtualization/2012/6/15/tinycore-vmware-view-repurposed-desktop-goodness.html

It's a nice webpage with customizable parameters, returning a ~38mb iso with the settings given.

On the downside, doesn't seem to be GPL compliant, no sources anywhere. The blog link above doesn't seem to be the service creator's though, no idea who to contact.

That is one anonymous website. No links, no copyright, no nothing.

It's hosted by Verizon and the domain is from Key Systems, but indeed quite hard to find any concrete info.

Hi curaga
That's interesting, I used wireshark to capture the IP address (46.34.89.224) and traced it to Madrid, Spain.
Their ISP is   NAP de Las Americas-Madrid.

Touche, I had used the main domain (vmwaredotg.com), not the sub-domain.

Guys,

actually I am the creator of that tool. I work as a Systems Engineer at vmware and I played around with tinycore and came up with this solution.

Apologies but it wasn't planned to go "public" in such a way. The next tool version will have a valid license statement and will be published as a virtual appliance as well.

We are also working to release it as a vmware fling to support the tinycore project.

The website btw is a vmware view demo service.

best regards,
fabian

Hi tcbuilder
Welcome to the forum. Well, mystery solved. I guess that was meant to be a test run that got away from you
and became public. That's funny.

Oh, no problem then. Looking forward to the next version, it's clearly a useful service and good PR for us too.
