WarpSpeed makes it easy for developers to access cloud infrastructure via the powerful WireGuard® VPN protocol. It can also be used to enable remote workers to access the internet securely while on public WiFi.

Deploying the WarpSpeed VPN Marketplace App

The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager.

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Compute Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  2. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.

  3. Fill out all required Options for the selected app as well as any desired Advanced Options (which are optional). See the Configuration Options section for details.

  4. Complete the rest of the form as discussed within the Getting Started > Create a Linode.

  5. Click the Create Linode button. Once the Linode has provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the Linode is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail. To determine if the installation has completed, open the Linode’s Lish console and wait for the system login prompt to appear.

  6. Follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section.

Software installation should complete within 10-15 minutes after the Linode has finished provisioning.

Getting Started after Deployment

Accessing the WarpSpeed VPN App

  1. Configure your custom domain to point towards the IPv4 (and IPv6) address of the newly created Compute Instance. Review the DNS Manager guide for instructions on setting up your DNS records in the Cloud Manager and read through DNS Records: An Introduction for general information about how DNS works.

  2. Once your domain has been configured and has finished propagating, enter the domain within a web browser to access the login page.

  3. Enter the Admin Email and Admin Password you defined during the initial deployment of this Compute Instance.

Now that you’ve accessed your WarpSpeed VPN instance, check out the official WarpSpeed VPN documentation to learn how to further configure your WarpSpeed VPN instance.

Currently, Linode does not manage software and systems updates for Marketplace Apps. It is up to the user to perform routine maintenance on software deployed in this fashion.
