Running with Docker

Here's a quick command to run the server to try it out.

docker run \
  -it \
  --rm \
  --cap-add NET_ADMIN \
  --device /dev/net/tun:/dev/net/tun \
  -v wg-access-server-data:/data \
  -e "WIREGUARD_PRIVATE_KEY=$(wg genkey)" \
  -p 8000:8000/tcp \
  -p 51820:51820/udp \
  place1/wg-access-server

If you open your browser using your LAN ip address you can even connect your phone to try it out: for example, i'll open my browser at http://192.168.0.XX:8000 using the local LAN IP address.

You can connect to the web server on the local machine browser at http://localhost:8000

Development

The software is made up a Golang Server and React App.

Here's how I develop locally:

  1. run
    cd website && npm install && npm start
    to get the frontend running on
    :3000
  2. run
    sudo go run ./main.go
    to get the server running on
    :8000

Here are some notes about the development configuration:

  • sudo is required because the server uses iptables/ip to configure the VPN networking
  • you'll access the website on
    :3000
    and it'll proxy API requests to
    :8000
    thanks to webpack
  • in-memory storage and generated wireguard keys will be used

GRPC codegeneration:

The client communicates with the server via gRPC-Web. You can edit the API specification in

./proto/*.proto
.

After changing a service or message definition you'll want to re-generate server and client code using:

./codegen.sh
.
