Manual Installation

Manual Installation

The latest binary release of ziti-edge-tunnel is distributed as an executable binary in GitHub.

Unzip the downloaded file and copy the binary to a directory in your PATH, such as /usr/local/bin.

sudo install -o root -g root ./ziti-edge-tunnel /usr/local/bin/

Create a POSIX group named ziti if it doesn't already exist. Members of this group can access the identity files and send IPC commands to the socket server.

grep -q '^ziti:' /etc/group || sudo groupadd --system ziti

Create a directory to hold the identity files.

sudo mkdir -pv /opt/openziti/etc/identities

Run the Manually Installed Binary

You must run the manually installed tunneller as root because only the Linux package configures ambient kernel capabilities that enable managing DNS and IP routes with reduced privileges.

sudo ziti-edge-tunnel run --identity-dir /opt/openziti/etc/identities
