Netify for OPNsense
OPNsense 64-bit - Versions 19.7.x, 20.1.x
Up-to-date Netify packages are maintained in our FreeBSD repository. To install the package, run:
pkg add http://pkg.freebsd.org/freebsd:11:x86:64/release_3/All/libunwind-20170615.txz pkg add http://pkg.freebsd.org/freebsd:11:x86:64/release_3/All/google-perftools-2.7.txz pkg add http://download.netify.ai/netify/freebsd/11.2/stable/netifyd-3.00_1.txz
OPNsense 32-bit and other versions
Sorry, we do not support 32-bit or other versions of OPNsense.
Netify will automatically detect the network interfaces and roles defined in OPNsense.
With the installation and setup completed, you can now start and enable Netify:
netifyd --enable-sink echo 'netifyd_enable="YES"' > /etc/rc.conf.d/netifyd service netifyd start
With the Netify service installed, configured and running, it is time to provision your unique install. You will first need to fetch the provision code from your Netify Agent install using the following command:
# netifyd -p Agent UUID: AA-BB-CC-DD
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.
