Good morning, my lab environment is GNS3 VM running on ESXI, I was able to install the swich simulator appliance and do the labs without the need for an internet connection. On the other hand I did hybrid projects with Fortigate, Sophos, Windows, Linux, pfsense, kali etc and if I need internet to activate trials and download updates.

Subject: Installing in a closed network
New here and have couple of questions. Planning to install this in a VMWare environment in our technical lab network. Both our Prod (bunch of 8320s) and Lab are not connected to the Internet. Before I get started I just wanted to understand if I can install this in the bastioned lab environment or does the software require online connectivity for registration etc.? if so then I guess there's no point for me to proceed.
