Yggdrasil is supported on Windows. You can download the latest installer from GitHub.
Starting with version 0.3.13, Yggdrasil on Windows uses the Wireguard TUN driver. If this is not installed on the system already, it will be installed automatically by the Yggdrasil installer.
For this reason, it is important that you use the correct installer for your
architecture - make sure to use the
x64 installer on 64-bit Windows and the
x86 installer on 32-bit Windows.
Please note that the OpenVPN TAP driver is no longer supported.
Once Yggdrasil is started, a new virtual network adapter will be created called
Yggdrasil by default, although this can be renamed using the
in the configuration file (below). The virtual network adapter will not be
visible on the system when Yggdrasil is not running.
The Yggdrasil installer will automatically generate an
configuration file, if one does not exist, in:
Yggdrasil is installed as a Windows service that starts automatically with
Windows. You can start, stop and restart Yggdrasil using the Services MMC
services.msc) or, in more recent versions of Windows, the “Services”
tab in Task Manager.
You will need to restart the Yggdrasil service after each change to the configuration file.
Windows Firewall may prompt for the Yggdrasil process to allow incoming or outgoing connections. If so, you should allow this or Yggdrasil may not be able to establish peerings correctly.
Note that Yggdrasil, by default, does allow incoming traffic over the
Yggdrasil virtual adapter, therefore you may wish to designate the
virtual network adapter as a public network in the Windows Firewall so that
unexpected incoming connections are blocked automatically.
If you do, pay particular attention to ensure that file sharing (SMB), remote procedure call (RPC) or remote desktop (RDP) services are not allowed on public networks unless you explicitly need them to be accessible from remote Yggdrasil hosts.
yggdrasilctl utility is also installed into the same location above. You
can query Yggdrasil’s runtime state using this tool using a Command Prompt or
PowerShell command line, e.g.
"C:\Program Files\Yggdrasil\yggdrasilctl.exe" getPeers
