VMware & ]project-open[


#1

Would it be possible to run VMware on my account so I could test ]project-open[ ?

VMware Player 2.0.1 for Linux (.rpm)

or

VMware Player 2.0.1 for Linux (.tar)


#2

No.
Did you even bother to read the TOS?

If you were on a dedicated or private server plan, it would be possible, but then I imagine you’d already be well aware of that fact.

I wish I knew what the TOS is :slight_smile:

Now that I know what the TOS is, I don’t understand how it addresses my point. I should probably try in the beginners’ forum.

I was somehow looking for a more technical explanation about the limitation.

The big hangup is that VMWare is a persistent process, which is frowned upon. DreamHost (stress the "host) part, is primarily for hosting (websites, mail, files). Not as a personal computer that’s running Linux.

The Terms Of Service: Material Products 6 & 7 explain this.

Thanks for the clarification, sdayman. :slight_smile:

I just thought most people knew what a TOS was… apparently not! My apologies :frowning:
