rConfig Update - November 2013

Thats right! rConfig has passed the 1000 download mark. I am absolutely delighted with this milestone and in some ways cannot believe it made it this far. rConfig was released on 14th December 2012 and has a nice steady growth rate to this point, nearly a year later. With the release of rConfig version 2.0, came some new and exciting features as voted for by the rConfig community. Also a few weeks after version 2.0 was released I considered it to be a stable rev. What does that mean? It means that the first iteration of a major release was bug free. Now, how many times do you see that in the industry.

That said, there is still work to do, and some of you guys have been actively engaged with me to get some features added and add support for new manufacturers of networking equipment. Over the month of December I plan to spend more time on rConfig development.

I have also spent some time this month installing a demo version of rConfig on the website. This is accessible via a registered login. It means you and your friends can check out the rConfig UI before you download it. It has some limitations but it should give those of you who have not used rConfig before a general feel for how it works.

If you wish to make a donation to the project, you may do so by logging on to with your credentials. The Paypal ‘donate now’ button is on most pages, but you will easily find it on the ‘about’ page. You can also support the project by purchasing Custom Support under the support section. Installation and Premium support options are available if you need help installing rConfig or troubleshooting any issues. You can also have specific/ custom features added for the Premium Support option also. Donations will be used to support the project directly for example hosting fees and developement environement fees.

Remember to keep the feedback coming, either to me directly or on the rConfig forums.

Happy Networking!!
