Return of the Matt: Physical to Virtual and Apache Tomcat

Matt Lestock returns and brings us the skinny on converting physical servers into virtual servers and piping 'em right into your ESXi box while Darren takes the scenic route on a Linux Apache Tomcat install with some Java and bash lovin'.

Matt Lestock uses VMware Converter to take that ugly power hungry idle beast and turn it into a sleek and slim virtual machine, piped stright into your ESXi host.

Darren Kitchen is cooking up a Linux based Java servlet container and HTTP web server with Apache Tomcat. While never distributions and package repositories can make setting up a Tomcat server a breeze, it's nice to have an understanding of the manual process.

Don't forget about our first ever official Hak5 Meetup at Busch Gardens Williamsburg on August 15th. Find all the details at or RSVP on Facebook.
