    Thinking about having a go with GSA SER. Just wondering what is the best OS to run it on (Going to built a VM for the purpose)?
    Also, is GSA still working well? Any tips/pitfalls to look out for?

    I haven't seen it for any OS other than Windows. But I could be wrong.

    Are you going to use it for first tier?

    Oh I see.
    Well, I would recommend Server 2003 or Server 2008.
    I've heard some bad things about 2012.

    Personally, I like 2008 the best.

    I would stay away from Windows 7 on a server. It's too much for a server.

    I would advice you to email them and ask if GSA is supported on those OS systems before buying it.

    Hope that helps.
    Good luck!

    It's amazing :) I use it on Windows 7 (laptop) and it works like a charm. Just don't forget to run proxies if you're doing it from a static IP.


    My laptop is my portable office, so I'll set up in a place with WIFI and blast from there (while I work on other stuff) for a bit, then move on. If i'm blasting from a static location like home/the office, I'm using Proxies (or at the very least, HMA Pro VPN, although it seems that alot of those IPs are burnt now...).

    Should work fine on any OS really. I have my copies running on dedicated servers running windows server 2008, as there is a 180 day trial on the license, so I just keep reinstalling the server every 180 days.
