Running node as docker image on Testnet

Ensure that You have the latest version:

# docker pull mysteriumnetwork/myst

Run node with VPN service on port 1194

# docker run --cap-add NET_ADMIN --net host --name myst --rm mysteriumnetwork/myst service --agreed-terms-and-conditions

Note1. By adding --agreed-terms-and-conditions command line option you accept our Terms & Conditions

Note2. It's mandatory to run container with --net host to correctly detect VPN service ip which needs to be published to clients, assuming that host has external interface with public ip

Note3. It's mandatory to run container with --net default --publish "1194:1194/udp", assuming that host machines is Windows/OSX. We support --net host only if host machine is Linux.

Note4. It's mandatory to run container with --net default --publish "1194:1194/udp" and do port forwarding PUBLIC_IP:1194 -> NODE_IP:1194, assuming that host doesn't have external interface with public ip. E.g. My publicly visible ip is [78.X.Y.Z] and my laptop's local ip [], so I port forwarded 78.X.Y.Z:1194 -> in router, which I have access to.

Node system requirements

Current node binaries should run on x86-64 linux architecture. Other architectures might work, but are not being tested. We test our docker images on Ubuntu 16.04, Debian 9 and CentOS 7.

To be able to run docker image, Your OS should support docker. This usually means that Your OS should have linux kernel version >= 3.10

Since Mysterium Network node is written in go its memory footprint is quite small. Most of the resources will be consumed by OpenVPN, Ethereum wallet (integrated into our binary) and system itself.

Minimum resources we tested with was 1GB of RAM.

It is suggested to run a node on a decent network connection to give VPN users best experience.

What OpenVPN version is required?

If You compiled a node or client on Your own, check that OpenVPN version on Your system is >= 2.4.4
