FIRST plugin can be configured in three ways; the Welcome dialog box when initially installed, the plugin main window and manually modifying the config file (no recommend for most).
When FIRST is initially installed and IDA is loaded a Welcome dialog box will appear. This only appears when FIRST is not configured.
The configuration requires a valid API key that can be obtained from the server (go to first-plugin.us to register with public server). Make sure to test the connection and select Save
Plugin Main Window¶
To access the plugin’s main window, users can either press 1 from a IDA Pro View window or by the IDA Pro Edit menu (Edit > Plugins > FIRST). Once the main window is open select the Configuration tab from the left panel. From here the connection details can be updated. Selecting the Test button will test if a connection to FIRST can be made. However, it does not save and use that server connection until the Save button is selected.
