Do I need to install a license key in vCenter to get NAT and firewall working? If so, where do I go to get this key?

Hi everyone,

Do I need to install a license key in vCenter to get NAT and firewall working?

If so, where do I go to get this key?

Thanks!

vCenter does not provide NAT functionality - as for firewall functinoality by itself it does not provide any protection but you can implement vShield which provides endpoint/firewall protection - vShield is included with all vSphere license levels.

vCloud requires vCloud Network & Security (vCNS) to be setup.  This requires a vCNS or vCloud Suite licences be setup in vCenter.  (In each vcenter that will be in your cloud).

Normally when getting a vCloud eval you will be given a key that will allow for this - but this key does need to be added to vCenter (the base vCloud install does not add it for you).
