    In the third part of this series on Netmaker/Wireguard for the home LAN, (part 1, part 2) let’s set up another wireguard network, featuring our external vps server which we’re going to use to browse the web from a different IP address to dodge ISP filtering, much as one might via a commerical VPN provider.

  • Netmaker/Wireguard for the home LAN part 2 - Home LAN Gateway

    This is part 2 of the “Netmaker for the home LAN” article, and in it I’ll go over instructions for setting up a home LAN gateway using netmaker and wireguard.

    This will consist of a single node running on our LAN server which is also running the netmaker instance we set up in part 1. I’ll also describe the process of connecting “external clients” to the network, phones, laptops etc. This is netmaker’s term for wireguard clients that aren’t directly managed by netmaker.

  • Netmaker/Wireguard for the home LAN part 1 - Installation and Config

    Wireguard Logo Netmaker Logo

    I’ve recently been working on setting up a personal VPN “infrastructure” with wireguard. Previously, I’ve been using a very simple setup to tunnel from my home connection to a server hosted in the US, to get around ISP web filtering.

    Recently, when out and about in a coffee shop, I found myself needing access to files on my desktop workstation, and had to traipse home to complete my work. This pushed me over the edge into finally setting up a home VPN, in order to securely access my home LAN from the internet.

    While wireguard is easy to configure, it (deliberately) doesn’t include any features for provisioning new clients or managing configurations generally. This is where netmaker comes in. It’s a configuration management layer for wireguard, capable of pushing out wireguard configurations to clients. It’s capable of provisioning complex fully meshed networks, but we can use it to manage a fairly simple wireguard setup.

    In this article I’ll describe how I run netmaker with docker-compose, and how I handle some aspects of the configuration. There are also steps to bring the whole thing up. In part 2, I’ll describe the LAN gateway implementation, and part 3 will go over the “personal VPN” aspect.
