Short Description
Monitors a docker openvpn-client and manages routes and iptable rules.
Full Description

openvpn-router

Using an openvpn client in a docker container is awesome, but is pointless if you cannot manage to route your traffic through it. There are various ways to route traffic, but most require using the host network, creating routes on the host, or making other odd changes. This tool allows everything to remain in containers.

This is a helper tool for openvpn-client docker image. Its purpose is to help manage iptable rules and routes in various containers based on configuration.

Requirements

  • ekristen/openvpn-client
  • --cap-add=NET_ADMIN on whatever container you want to add routes to

Options

  • --name - the name of the openvpn-client container
  • --network - the docker network in the openvpn-client container to use for routes
  • --nat-source - to get traffic to route properly, you'll have to nat the docker network traffic through the OpenVPN client ip (can be specified multiple times)
  • --route - routes to send to the openvpn-client for specified containers (can be specified multiple times)
  • --route-container - containers to apply the routes to (can be specified multiple times)

Running

docker run -it \
  --name="openvpn-router" \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
  ekristen/openvpn-router \
  --nat-source 172.149.0.0/16
