WireGuard automated installer | Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora

edited April 30 in General

Lightweight WireGuard installer, written entirely in bash.

GitHub:
https://github.com/Nyr/wireguard-install

One-liner:
wget https://git.io/wireguard -O wireguard-install.sh && bash wireguard-install.sh

Supported distros:
- Ubuntu 20.04 and 18.04
- Debian 10
- Centos 8 and 7
- Fedora 32 and 31

FAQ:

Will it work in my Raspberry Pi?
Probably, I don't have one to test. Install the raspberrypi-kernel-headers package and hope for the best. But you should consider using a distribution with built-in kernel support when it becomes available.

OpenVZ support?
News on this soon. I have something in mind, but I want to do it right and it's a decent ammount of work. That's why I wanted to release the current version of wireguard-install, which is fully compatible with everything else first.

Can you add x feature?
Maybe, if it's worth it. But I'll keep the installer simple and functional, so keep that in mind. Niche features are unlikely to be implemented.

I like the project, how can I help?
Tell other people about it! wireguard-install is new and many people do not yet know about it. Some other low-quality tools based on my openvpn-install work exist, with credits and copyright notices removed. It's a sad sight to me after nearly a decade maintaining openvpn-install.

    How about IPv6? Is there an Angristan variant that does?

    My pronouns are asshole/asshole/asshole. I will give you the same courtesy.

  • @WSS said: How about IPv6?

    IPv6 is natively supported, same as openvpn-install.

    @WSS said: Angristan variant that does?

    None of my work has anything to do with him, he just created a dubious quality fork of my OpenVPN installer and last I checked, he was getting funded on Patreon for it. Attention to detail between the original work and the copy just can't be compared. One was created by someone who is competent at networking, security and system administration and the other was forked by someone who wanted a "secure" version of my work because the default RSA key length was "insecure" for him.

    I'm sorry, I was attempting to tease you. I had no idea the asshole was making money from this.

    I've used your openvpn script more times than I can count for a quick VPN setup because it's just so easy, glad you've branched into wireguard too. Nice work!

  • Thank you very much for spending time into doing this. I've used your openvpn script many times in the past.

  • Thanks.
    I am using this https://github.com/complexorganizations/wireguard-manager/blob/master/.github/README.md

    Was waiting for your one.

    That repository is based on Angristan+l-n-s, both of them are forks of my original work and the author is either unaware or trying to hide that fact. But whatever it is, my original copyright is not being respected. I will not go into the technical part of the scripts here, already did that over at LET in case you are interested, but his repo is forked from Angristan so to put it short I'd suggest not to waste your time.

    If you want to experiment with other VPN installers, I'd suggest looking at the following ones:
    https://github.com/StreisandEffect/streisand
    https://github.com/trailofbits/algo

    They use very different approaches than my minimalist bash script but work reasonably well and are well maintained by technically competent people. I'm sure there are even more options, but that's what I am aware of :)

    Only UDP is required, you can remove the TCP port :)

    @Nyr I am searching for wg API which automates account creation or in short perform CRUD.
    Do you know any? Right now I am looking at github.com/alectrocute/wg-api (beta) and github.com/suquant/wgrest (limited functionality)

    You already know more than me! I'm new to the whole WireGuard scene and not familiar with third party projects (yet).

  • Until I read this thread, I’d somehow managed to miss wireguard going v1, so thanks!

  • Great @Nyr B)

    If 127.0.0.1 is chosen for DNS, will users use the Unbound resolver on the server ?

  • @Nyr It would be great if you included Unbound on this script

  • What's Min ram on KVM vps required to work well?

    Mostly lurking for now.

  • @cybertech
    Worked on 512mb KVM.
    Wireguard Go works on 128mb ovz

    The script looks pretty good... Nice work.

    @cybertech said:

    I've got WireGuard running on a 256 MB KVM with no issues. On Linux, at runtime it's just a kernel module so the memory requirements are lower than other VPN apps that need userland apps to be running.

    @bibble said: If 127.0.0.1 is chosen for DNS, will users use the Unbound resolver on the server ?

    The "current system resolvers" option means exactly that: the resolvers currently used by the system, whatever it is in resolv.conf. So that's not necessarily 127.0.0.1, and even if it is, 127.0.0.1 would of course not be valid for VPN clients.

    With that said, with WireGuard the DNS configuration is directly in the client.conf file, so you can easily configure 10.0.7.1 which is the server address.

    @sonic said: It would be great if you included Unbound on this script

    Would you want the script to set up a recursor, or to integrate with an already running one? The second is very easy, read my comment just above this.

    @cybertech said: What's Min ram on KVM vps required to work well?

    That depends on the OS and other factors, but others already explained what to expect. If you have only 256 MB, I'd suggest to use Debian.

  • Works like a charm. And WireGuard is much faster than OpenVPS. Double the throughput.

    Thanks for this script @Nyr

    Cloudflare DNS is good and no logging policy so it's OK to use them. Great option for small VPS!
    Unbound DNS is lightweight, I would go with unbound if my VPS had more than 512 MB RAM
