NOTE: IxANVL supports the US English versions of the Windows OS. Although, IxANVL may run on other versions of  Windows OS, they are not officially supported by Ixia. If you attempt to install or run IxANVL on any version of Windows OS other than the U.S. English versions, the IxANVL installation or operation may fail.

Linux OS: 

CentOS 7.5 (CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804, Kernel 3.10.0-862.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP)

DEPRECATED OS:

Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit
Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

 

CentOS-6.5  (64 bit) with kernel 2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64

Important Note: Java has a known caveat that requires an extra rpm file, xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm, that sometimes is not installed by default on an RHE 5.0 machine. As the IxANVL installer is a Java-based application, it is required that this file be installed in order to function normally. Please refer to the Linux installation notes below for a workaround to fix this problem.
