You will need to have git and ant installed to build netifera. On Debian or Ubuntu Linux systems you can install these tools with the following command.
|$ apt-get install git-core ant|
The next step is to clone the stable public Netifera Git tree with this command:
|$ git clone https://github.com/netifera/netifera.git|
Cloning the tree should have created a directory called /netifera. Enter that directory and run the ant command.
|$ cd netifera|
This will launch the Netifera build. The first time you build Netifera an archive file of about 150mb will be downloaded from the netifera.com webserver containing the build environment and dependencies. When the build completes, the output is unpacked into a directory called netifera-build. You can now launch netifera from here:
|$ netifera-build/netifera &|
If you prefer, a .zip file containing the build is available in this directory:

This is the line to change:
Once you are ready, you can launch headless netifera with the following command:
