Run WireGuard & Transmission in a Docker Container

Sebastian

docker-wireguard-transmission

Update 2021-05-23: This project is no longer maintained because there is a more clean way of achieving this with only a compose file. Check out my other repo here: SebDanielsson / compose-transmission-wireguard

I just released my first Docker image! It's based on Alpine Linux and runs both WireGuard and Transmission in one container that weights in at about 30 MB. I've customized Transmission to run the excellent Secretmapper / combustion web interface and also applied my SebDanielsson / dark-combustion color palette.

If you're new to Docker you might want to check out my post "Get started with Docker", covering the basic commands for administrating images, containers and docker-compose.

Usage

docker run

docker run --name wireguard-transmission \--privileged \-e "USERNAME=transmission" \-e "PASSWORD=transmission" \-e "INTERFACE=wg0" \-e "KILLSWITCH=wg0" \-p 51820:51820/udp \-p 9091:9091 \-v /path/to/wg-conf-dir:/etc/wireguard \-v /path/to/transmission-conf-dir:/etc/transmission-daemon \-v /path/to/transmission-complete-dir:/transmission/complete \-v /path/to/transmission-incomplete-dir:/transmission/incomplete \-v /path/to/transmission-watch-dir:/transmission/watch \sebdanielsson/wireguard-transmission
