Chapter 1


When I wrote rConfig initially, I wanted a simple, easy-to-use Network Configuration tool. A tool that took a few minutes to install, did not require tons of expensive extra bloated software and had a fast interface. I learned a lot, but to craft rConfig by hand to achieve those goals was an amazing experience. It is used by over 10,000 network professionals today. I am very proud of this fact.

We will always need Network Configuration Management, and my goals for rConfig are to improve, iterate and add value through content, so you - the Network Engineering Professionals of the world may focus on your core work. Adding value to the organizations you serve.
