Websockify

GitHub GitHub issues npm npm

Websockify is a simplified reimplementation of NoVNC's websockify and is provided as a global npm package for ease of use.

Prerequisites

Installation

To install Websockify globally, run:

npm install -g @teampanfu/websockify

Usage

To use Websockify, provide the WebSocket server port and the TCP server port as arguments.

websockify 9090 8080

This command initializes the WebSocket server on port 9090 and forwards traffic to the TCP server. Optionally, include the IP address with the TCP server port:

websockify 9090 192.168.1.1:8080

Adjust the port numbers and, if needed, include the IP address according to your specific configuration.

SSL Certificate (WSS)

For secure WebSocket connections (WSS), use SSL certificates. To enable SSL, include the --cert (-c) and --key (-k) options in the command, providing the paths to the SSL certificate and key files, respectively.

websockify 9090 8080 --cert /path/to/certificate.crt --key /path/to/private-key.key

Creating SSL Certificates with OpenSSL

If you don't have SSL certificates, you can create them using OpenSSL. Here's a basic example:

openssl req -x509 -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout private-key.key -out certificate.crt -days 365 -nodes

This command generates a self-signed certificate (certificate.crt) and a private key (private-key.key). Adjust the parameters as needed.

Debugging

To enable debugging mode, use the --debug (-d) option:

websockify 9090 8080 --debug
