IP Address Audit And Management

opAddress: Track Your IP Address Space

What is opAddress?

Track your IP Address Space

Eliminate IP address conflict by regaining control of the IP address used in your organization using opAddress.

IP address space auditing, tracking, allocating, and managing require a simple, accurate, and extensible system to be effective. opAddress acts as a lightweight IPAM solution, providing periodic scanning of subnets to determine the use of address space and allowing quick and easy editing and reallocation.

opAddress can handle complex environments with multi-tenancy, overlapping address spaces, and complex security domains with ease.


"We take new ideas to FirstWave about how we'd like to see their products work and they add our ideas to the product roadmap. The relationship could not be any easier. I consider them an extension of my team."

Dayle Wilson

Chief Product & Operating Officer


"After a long and in-depth search for a network monitoring solution, we found [FirstWave] the best fit for all our needs. With their excellent support, onsite training, and almost unlimited ability to be customized to fit our needs, it was no contest."

Kurtis Bredda

Director of Network Services


"NMIS is hands down one of the best data collection monitoring suites we have ever used. The data and enriched alerting it provides is exactly what we were looking for to make data-driven network decisions for upgrade and growth. It has set us on the path from reactive to proactive!"

Jodan Long

Director of Network Operations


“After years of having multiple monitoring systems, we finally have a single one that works and is configurable to meet our needs.”

Paul Pyyvaara

Director of Operations


"Our engineers prefer using opCharts as the speed and responsiveness of the GUI makes it a far more usable product than our previous app."

Art Smolecki


"With NMIS and FirstWave we have a true partner that we can rely on to make sure we are on top of any issues on our network and have good data and analytics to make sure our customers get top-notch service."

Bill Farmer

Senior Platform Engineer


"As a telecommunications provider with a country wide presence, we rely heavily on to-the-minute alerting, live graphical statistics and reporting. NMIS provides the flexibility to satisfy all of those requirements."

Leigh Havas

System Administrator


"NMIS for the win! I like that it's agentless, and when you do need support you get quickly connected to engineers, not jumping through hoops and waiting."

Phil Shannon

Senior Systems Engineer


"Great features right out of the box, such as business rules and the ability to model any piece of equipment. All of the key features can be accessed through the GUI, but I can edit everything in the command line if I need it."

Davide Yachaya


"NMIS is open-source, easy to deploy and maintain. The feature set of this product is amazing as it allows you to monitor every single Network device within our organization."

Hensley Dass

Core Network Engineer


"It’s not that companies *can* do automation, it's *how* you do automation, and at the end of the day FirstWave showed they were much better at it.’’

Milan Atanackovic

Vice President Of Engineering

Quick Setup

Install +

Please note that NMIS must be installed on your machine before adding opAddress or most other FirstWave network management modules. Please ensure you have installed NMIS before installing opAddress. NMIS is the underlying software required to run any of FirstWave’s individual network monitoring and management modules and can be installed on Linux. If you do not have a machine currently running Linux, you can download and install the FirstWave Virtual Machine, which includes NMIS and all FirstWave network monitoring software modules. The following installation guide should be sufficient for most users’ needs. Advanced instructions and troubleshooting are available on the opAddress Wiki.

1. Download the opAddress installer
If you haven’t already, hit the download button above and download the opAddress Installer. The Installer comes as a .run file.

2. Run the Installer in Linux Terminal
Open the Linux Terminal. Start a Terminal instance as the root user through the following command, entering your password when prompted: sudo -i
If you have not been granted access to the root user, contact your system administrator. Once your terminal session is run by the root user, run the shell command to begin the installation process

sh opAddress-.run

Press Y or Return/Enter when the installer prompts you. Several times throughout the installation process you will be prompted to approve the various components of the opAddress Module as they are installed on your machine. Please take note of any relevant information as you approve each step. When the installation is complete, the following will print on the Terminal:

You’re now ready to license opAddress.
