wg-admin

Build Status

wg-admin is a command-line tool to administer WireGuard configuration files. It maintains a local database of networks, which each has a number of peers. From this database, the configuration can be rendered for all peers.

Deploying the configuration is outside the scope of this project.

Add a Network

The defining attribute of the configuration is a network. This is a range of IP addresses specified as prefix/suffix, e.g. 192.168.10.0/24 or 2001:0DB8:0:CD30::1/60.

Examples:

$ wg-admin networks add 192.168.10.0/24

Add a Server

A server is a peer with a public DNS name that is reachable by all clients via public internet. It's the entry point for clients into the VPN (a.k.a. relay or bounce server).

Examples:

$ wg-admin servers add --name wg.example.com
$ wg-admin servers add --name wg.example.com --ip 192.168.20.128

This command will add a new server with the given DNS name and a default configuration. If no IP address was passed, the next available address in the network will be used. When no port was specified, the de-facto standard port for WireGuard will be used (51820).

Add a Client

A client is regular peer that does not relay (bounce) traffic. It will connect to the VPN via a server.

Examples:

$ wg-admin client add --name Alice
$ wg-admin client add --name Alice --ip 192.168.20.11

If no IP address was passed, the next available address in the network will be used.

List Peers

$ wg-admin peers list
+================+========|=================|
| Name           | Type   | IP Addresses    |
+================+========|=================|
| wg.example.com | server | 192.168.20.1    |
+----------------+--------|-----------------|
| Alice          | client | 192.168.20.11   |
+----------------+--------|-----------------|

TODO If this command is run without a (pseudo) terminal, it will print the name of each peer on a single line, which allows for a convenient loop over all peers, e.g. for writing configuration files (see below for further details):

$ for peer in $(wg-admin peers list); do
  wg-admin config "$peer" > "$peer".conf
done

Generate the Config Files

This command will show the configuration of the server itself as well as the necessary fragments for a particular peer:

$ wg-admin config wg.example.com
[Interface]
Address = 192.168.20.1/24
ListenPort = 51820
PrivateKey = private-key-of-the-server=

[Peer]
# Name = Alice
PublicKey = public-key-of-Alice=
AllowedIPs = 192.168.20.11/32

The result is printed to stdout and could be redirected to a file, or piped into a QR encoder:

$ wg-admin config --client=Alice | qrencode -t ANSIUTF8
