How to install Network Configuration Manager in AWS

Installing Network Configuration Manager in AWS helps in ensuring world class network configuration management for your network while eliminating the need for a physical server.

You can use Network Configuration Manager in AWS using one of the 2 methods:

Running Network Configuration Manager from AMI

Purchase Network Configuration Manager AMI from here. 

  • While purchasing, you will be prompted to select the EC2 instance of your choice based on certain preconfiguration.
  • Select the required instance and launch AMI using "admin" as username and instance Id as password.

Note: When you access Network Configuration Manager using the public IP/DNS address, note that the "Public IP/DNS address" changes when the instance is stopped/terminated. As in a network, devices need to forward syslogs & traps to the Network Configuration Manager server, the public IP has to be updated in the end devices every time it changes. Hence it is recommended to use an elastic IP address for seamless managing . For more details on Elastic IP address click here.

Running Network Configuration Manager from EC2 instance


Before installing Network Configuration Manager at AWS, ensure that you meet the following pre-requisites

  1. Say if you are planning to manage up to 500 devices using Network Configuration Manager, we recommend you to have the following instance configurations
    • EC2 instance type m4.xlarge or above
    • OS - Windows 10/8/7 or Windows server 2008 or above ( upto 2019 supported ).
    • 20 GB memory space ( minimum )
  1. Note: The above specified are the minimum requirements. You may have to change the configurations according to the number of devices you are managing and additional integrations / modules ( such as firewall, IP address management etc ). To know more about creating instance click here.
  2. Ensure that the instance's Public IP/DNS is not blocked by any firewall and is accessible to all devices in your network.
  3. Ensure that the required security ports are available for use.

Steps to install and run amazon from EC2 instance

  1. Remotely connect to your EC2 instance
  2. In that instance, open your web browser
  3. Download and install Network Configuration Manager. 
  4. Login to Network Configuration Manager using "admin" as username and "admin" as password.

Important Note: 
Ensure that the following ports in your Network Configuration Manager instance are not blocked for proper functioning of Network Configuration Manager and its add-ons ( this step is a must for running Network Configuration Manager from AMI as well as for running Network Configuration Manager from an EC2 instance):
