What is opConfig?
Network Configuration And Compliance Management
Configuration and Compliance Management is now easier to implement than ever before using opConfig.
opConfig continuously monitors the configuration of devices discovered by Open-AudIT Enterprise or managed by NMIS, tracks changes and stores a complete history of configuration information.
opConfig can assist with risk management and regulatory compliance (APRA, PCI-DSS, SOX) for device configuration, software versions and hardware. Organizations can efficiently manage the backup and comparison of configuration information, aiding in the quick resolution of problems and compliance with standards.
"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."
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."
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!"
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."
Director of Operations
"Our engineers prefer using opCharts as the speed and responsiveness of the GUI makes it a far more usable product then our previous app."
"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."
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."
"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."
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."
"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."
Core Network Engineer
"It’s not that companies *can* do automation, it's *how* you do automation, and at the end of the day Opmantek showed they were much better at it.’’

Please note that NMIS must be installed on your machine before adding opConfig or most other FirstWave network management modules. Please ensure you have installed NMIS before installing opConfig. 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 opConfig Wiki.
1. Download the opConfig installer
If you haven’t already, hit the download button above and download the opConfig 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 opConfig-<version number>.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 opConfig 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 opConfig.
Good news! Each of FirstWave’s network monitoring software modules offer a free time-unlimited 20-node license. The first time you open each program, you will be given the opportunity to activate a free license.
Time-limited trials are also available if you want to test the software on a larger network, and licenses for running FirstWave’s software modules on larger networks are available by request.
opConfig allows you to explore the details of the network which you have configured in NMIS. You can use opConfig to improve visibility and maintain consistency across your whole IT environment through advanced tracking of device and network configuration settings.
Explore FirstWave’s extensive software documentation
You’re now ready to configure opConfig to exactly your needs and to begin monitoring events on your network using the guides on the FirstWave Wiki. In no time at all, you’ll have a fuller view of your network than you’ve ever had before.
