Wireguard client connection/disconnection notification

alfiosalanitri profile image alfiosalanitri Updated on ・1 min read

With this tutorial you can setup your server to send an alert to telegram when a client is connected or disconnected from the tunnel.

The script sends a message to telegram if the client hasn't activity with the server for x (15 default) minutes.

Prerequisites

  • Server with Wireguard and root privileges (read this post to install wireguard)
  • curl sudo apt install curl
  • Telegram Bot (how to create a bot)

Installation

TIME_LIMIT=15 (alert will be sent after 15 minutes of inactivity)
TELEGRAM_CHAT_ID="your-chat-id"
TELEGRAM_BOT_ID="your-bot-api-key"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Add execution privilege to wg-clients-guardian.sh
sudo -s
chmod +x /path/to/wireguard-client-connection-notification/wg-clients-guardian.sh
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • create the cron job
* * * * * cd /path/to/wireguard-client-connection-notification/wg-clients-guardian.sh && /path/to/wireguard-client-connection-notification/wg-clients-guardian.sh > /dev/null 2>&1
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Do you want to receive an email instead of a telegram notification?
