Abstract

This paper describes User-mode Linux (UML) and discusses the theory and implementation of the creation a networked "laboratory suite" of UML instances on a single host, allowing them to communicate with each other and the outside world, and allowing remote users to access the virtual machines via a graphical interface. There is discussion of the potential applications of the virtual environment, particularly in an educational setting where students can be given superuser access to their own virtual machine. Benefits of the use of the virtual lab as opposed to a conventional lab are discussed, and an illustration of student use of the virtual lab is provided for illustration. The aims and methods of further research, and the testing of the virtual platform itself are finally considered.
