Step 1e: Install required packages into the Go! Virtual Machine

The Go! virtual appliance does not come with all of the packages that it needs pre-installed. This is done to keep the size of the install wizard for the virtual machine at a reasonable size. In this step, the remaining required packages will be downloaded and installed. To do this, open a command shell with the Go! SSH Client (see Step 1d), and enter the following command:
$ sudo -s
$ apt-get update
$ source /opt/goembedded/bin/

Step 1f: Configure Windows Networking.

The next configuration task is to set up Samba Windows networking in the virtual appliance. From the left panel menu of webmin, select "Servers", then "Samba Windows File Sharing", which will open the Samba configuration screen in the right panel. If the "Samba Windows File Sharing" option is not shown under "Servers" in webmin, then you need to press the "Refresh Modules" button in the left menu. In the right panel of "Samba Windows File Sharing", select "Windows Networking" to open the "Windows Networking Options" screen shown below. Change the "Workgroup" to a value appropriate for your Windows network (your local domain or workgroup name), and click the "Save" button.


Now you must update the Samba user password for go to match the value you set for the go user. When you pressed "Save" above, you should have been returned to the "Samba Windows File Sharing" screen in the right panel. Scroll down to the bottom of the right panel, and press the "Edit Samba users and passwords" choice. Next select the "go" user from the "Samba User List", which will open the "Edit Samba User" screen shown below. Next to "Password", select the "New Password" choice, and enter the same password you set for the "go" user, and press "Save".


The next thing you must do on the virtual appliance is regenerate the SSH keys it uses, so that if you have multiple instances of these appliances on your network, they don't all use the same SSH host keys. To regenerate the keys, open a command shell with the Go! SSH Client (see Step 1d), and as shown in the screenshot below, enter the following commands:
$ sudo rm /etc/ssh/ssh_host_*\\
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server
