Netify for NethServer


NethServer is an operating system for Linux enthusiasts, designed for small offices and medium enterprises. It is based on CentOS.

It takes a modular approach to adding functionality under a unified configuration and UX framework, allowing an admin to support:

  • Mail Server
  • Web Server
  • Groupware
  • Firewall and Gateway (IDS/IPS, VPN etc.)
  • Private Cloud

NethServer makes an ideal gateway and Netify packages (and an add-on repository) are pre-compiled for NethServer for easy installation from the command line. If you have or are thinking of using NethServer as your gateway to the Internet, you can be up and running in under 15 minutes!

Up-to-date Netify packages are maintained in the Netify repository here.

rpm --import
wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/netify.repo
yum clean all
yum 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, set to run on boot and extract the provisioning UUID code using the following commands:

sudo systemctl restart netifyd
sudo systemctl enable netifyd
sudo /usr/sbin/netifyd --provision


Once you have the provisioning code, you will need to create a Netify account (if you don't have one already) and run through the simple provisioning wizard. Once complete, metadata and analysis will start to be available in under a minute.
