The following list contains all of the software you will need to install Emulab. We recommend downloading all of it beforehand to avoid delays during the install process. Contact us for any Emulab-specific packages that are not yet publicly available.
FreeBSD (11.2) - [445MB compressed]
FreeBSD is the Operating System for all Emulab servers. Only the "disc1" or "memstick" images will be required for a standard installation.
Note: You will want to install the 64-bit version ("amd64"), NOT the the 32-bit version ("i386"). Make sure that the hardware you are installing FreeBSD on supports 64-bit OSes!

Emulab-tested Ports collection for 11.2 - [60MB]
See the http://www.emulab.net/downloads/ports-README-11.2.txt for details about how this ports tree differs from the standard 11.2 distribution.
