If you choose to run OpUtils as an Amazon Machine Instance (AMI), you are required to purchase OpUtils AMI from here.
Note: When you access OpUtils 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 and traps to the OpUtils 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. Learn more about elastic IP address here.
To install and run OpUtils in AWS, following prerequisites are to be satisfied,
1. If your requirement is to use OpUtils to manage 250 IP address and 250 ports, it is recommended that you have the below specified configurations.
Note: The above specified are the minimum requirements. You may have to change the configurations to suit the number of IP Address or Switch Ports you are managing. To get additional details on how to create an instance, click here.
2. All devices in your network require access to the instance’s Public IP/DNS. Assure that it is not blocked by a firewall.
3. For proper functioning of OpUtils and its add-ons, certain security ports are required to be available for free use.
For ensuring the complete functionality of your OpUtils instance, the following ports are required. Do confirm that the following ports are not blocked.
|13306||TCP||Static (PostgreSQL)||Database Port||Can be changed in conf/ database_params.conf file|
|1433||TCP||Static (MSSQL)||Database Port||Can be changed in conf/ database_params.conf file/ dbconfiguration.bat file|
|8060||TCP||Static||Web Server Port||Can be configured using ChangeWebServerPort.bat file|
This is a mandatory step for running OpUtils from AMI as well as for running OpUtils from an EC2 instance.
