Configure basic support for NETCONF

An example that shows the one-time steps you must complete to allow NETCONF clients to access Vyatta NOS.

  1. Initialize NETCONF.
    user@system# set service netconf

    Or, to use NETCONF over a VRF:

    user@system# set routing routing-instance <instance> service netconf
  2. Define the port for NETCONF over SSH.
    Note: This command will over-ride the default SSH port, if it is not already configured. To avoid this problem, also make sure that set service ssh port 22 is explicit in the configuration.
    user@system# set service ssh port 830
    In this case, we've defined port 830.
  3. Commit the change.
    user@system# commit
    You should now be able to reach NETCONF on the interfaces you expect.
  4. Optional: Check that Vyatta NOS is listening on the port you configured.
    user@system# show system connections | grep 830
    tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:830             0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN
    tcp6       0      0 :::830                  :::*                    LISTEN
