    I am in the process of setting up a new Debian 5.0 Lenny based VMware 2.0 server and will follow your most excellent tutorial, however....

    I would really appreciate some guidance for the addition of a monitored UPS to my reconfigured VMware 2.0 server.

    My investigations so far have discovered that the UPS has a Linux driver : Winpower_setup_Linux.tar.gz and that a pre-requisite is a Java Runtime Environment JRE1.3.1

    Questions:

    Is there any security issue adding this JRE to a Debian Server?

    Is there any advantage finding the latest release from java.sun.com - I believe JRE 6 is the latest?

    Do you have a short tutorial on how to achieve this 'safely' and securely?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm sorry, but we don't have such a tutorial.
