Netify for ClearOS


ClearOS is an open-source, Linux-based OS platform that is designed from the ground up to be extensible. ClearOS provides any combination of network, gateway and server functionality to small/medium sized business, non-profit organizations, education/government and distributed enterprise.

Supporting best-in-class open source and 3rd party applications through one secure, intuitive web-based interface, ClearOS is about choice - giving administrators the ability to run services on-premise or in the cloud, or both - "Hybrid Technology".

ClearOS makes an ideal gateway and Netify is offered in the ClearOS 7 Marketplace. If you have or are thinking of using ClearOS as your gateway to the Internet, you can be up and running in under 15 minutes!

ClearOS 7


In the ClearOS GUI (Webconfig operating on port 81), click on the "Marketplace" heading after logging as 'root' or some other user having permissions to access the Marketplace. Scroll through the app until you find Netify or enter "Netify" in the search filter. Click on "Select for Install" and click on the "Download and Install" button as you would install any other app in the ClearOS Marketplace.

Command Line

If you prefer the Linux command line, up-to-date Netify packages are maintained in the ClearOS repository "clearos-contribs". This repository should be enabled by default, but to be safe, run:

yum --enablerepo=clearos-contribs install app-netify


Once the app is installed from the Marketplace or command line, use Webconfig to navigate to:

Network Network Intelligence Netify Agent

In the Settings section, click "Edit" and update the Netify Agent field to Enabled. Make note of your Provision Code - you will need this on the Netify portal when you provision your new agent.

ClearOS 6


The Netify Webconfig app has not been ported to ClearOS 6. Command line installation only.

Command Line

To install the Netify agent on ClearOS 6, run:

yum --enablerepo=clearos-contribs install netifyd


Once the netify package has been installed, edit: /etc/netifyd.conf And make the following changes:

enable_netify_sink = yes

After saving the file, restart the daemon with:

service netifyd restart
chkconfig netifyd on
