You can run lokinet inside an lxc and this is a preferred way to run lokinet on a vps or box with a public ip.

install lxc:

sudo apt install lxc

you do not want lxd, that is lxc with more things you probably dont need and their cli tools are totally different.


create the lxc:

sudo lxc-create -t debian -n lokinet

set up the config options needed for lokinet to run in an lxc

# this goes at the end of /var/lib/lxc/lokinet/config

# bind /dev/net into the container for /dev/net/tun
lxc.mount.entry = /dev/net dev/net none bind,create=dir
# allow /dev/net/tun to exist
lxc.cgroup2.devices.allow = c 10:200 rwm

# auto start the container (optional but nice to have)
lxc.start.auto = 1

start up the lxc sudo lxc-start -d -n lokinet

then attach to the inside of the lxc and install lokinet as you usually would.

sudo lxc-attach -n lokinet

apt update && apt upgrade
apt install curl gpg
curl -so /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/oxen.gpg https://deb.oxen.io/pub.gpg
echo "deb https://deb.oxen.io $(lsb_release -sc) main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/oxen.list
apt update && apt install lokinet && exit

set up an exit node to make sure clearnet traffic goes over lokinet. see this page.
