Question: Can I setup Zeroshell as my primary windows Firewall; Virtually?

I would like to install “Virtual Zeroshell” on my Windows Laptop.
The reason is so that I can setup OpenVPN LAN to LAN connections to my other Zeroshell Servers & configure the Laptop to use Zeroshell and traverse the OpenVPN LAN to LAN networks.

I am trying to not have to Connect and Disconnect [too & from] each Network using a Windows OpenVPN client.

***Is It Possible***

What you could try is to install Zeroshell in a VMWare Player and force the Windows Default Gateway to be the IP of Zeroshell, but at the moment I wouldn't know how to help you.

I will take you suggestion and test it.

I imagine that if this works, in will turn a standard windows OS in to a very powerful “Windows/Zeroshell Encrypted Server/Router”.

Do you think it will be something you would consider testing?
This way if I run into any issues; and I will; I can look to you for directions and or answers.
