  1. I imported the virtual machine into our inventory and started the squid appliance up, but I do not see an eth0 interface. This is common with vmware and the Ubuntu OS. To fix this, from the terminal, remove the following file:
    #sudo rm -fr /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and reboot.
  2. How can I access Webmin? You can access Webmin by going to (replace with your real IP address). Login using username squid and password motava
