Where do you find your "Netgate Device ID"?



  • I ended up buying the 4960,and I am trying to setup and register for the free pfsense gold support. However I do not know what the Netgate Device ID  in order to register and get the free support and register.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.



  • Isn't that the number on the top left corner when you are on the dashboard page of webConfigurator?
    (Status / Dashboard / System Information / System)
    I think it gets generated automatically when pfsense is installed.



  • haleakalas thanks…..I have not gotten that far since when looking at the quick start guide it says "Before configuring the pfSense appliance it is best to activate the bundled Gold by following the instruction" so that is where I was at. I have not booted it up since I was looking to register first and I could not figure out where the device ID was located at since only thing is the bottom data plate and that is it.

    Looks like I may have to boot it up possibly.

    Take the NDI and then register your device at netgate.com to get the Gold membership.

    Netgate Device ID (NID)

    Updating the doc would save time for next users following the 'Getting Started' manual…
