How to update to 7 and other questions

Postby Paradise » Jul 13 11 3:46 am

Hi,

i have WinGate 6 running on Win7 x64. So my first question is how to update WinGate 6 to 7? Just install over it?

Second question is if i need to by another license (upgrade) or if the WinGate 6 license works with 7?

Third: Is there any benefit of using Windows Small Business Server instead of Win 7? I mean it from the WinGate site and not what WSBS can do what Win7 can't.
I use WinGate just for DHCP, NAT, Routing. Are there performance benefits with WSBS or something?

Regards from Germany

Hi

If you're just using NAT, DHCP and routing, then it's ok to just install over the top. You will lose any service policies is the main thing.

If your WinGate 6 license had current version protection as at 1 Jan 2011, then it will activate in WinGate 7, otherwise you'll need to renew it.

SBS vs Windows 7. For network packet-level stuff I wouldn't expect to see much difference. The server OSes tend to perform better than the desktop ones for proxies etc.
