download server and checks for Kerio MailServer updates.If the connection fails,network for
VMware is not set properly.This should not be a problem unless it is desirable to run Kerio
MailServer in the Internet.VMware Virtual Appliance will simply not include the up-to-date
version of Kerio MailServer.
If the update check is completed successfully or if installation of the current version is se-
lected,the installation gets started.First,the installation script opens the license agreement
