Initial device setup is described in the Getting Started section. This section focuses on how to configure the device once it is up and running.

SH-wg is configured using a web interface. If you are connected to the same network as the device, you can access the web interface by opening a web browser and navigating to http://sh-wg.local/. Alternatively, you can enter the device IP address.

The web interface displays the Status page by default, as shown below. You can navigate to other pages using the top right menu.

The Status page shows useful information on the device and its operation.

The Configuration page allows adjusting run-time configuration settings. Specific configuration options are described in the following sections. Note that when changing configuration settings, restarting the device is required for the changes to take effect.

Finally, the Control page allows controlling the device. At the moment, there are options only for rebooting the device and for resetting the device to factory defaults.

WiFi Configuration

The next three boxes allow changing the WiFi network settings. In client mode, the device connects to an existing WiFi network using the provided name and password. In access point mode, the device creates its own WiFi network using the provided name and password.

Firmware Update Configuration

By default, the SH-wg device tries to check online for available firmware updates every now and then. If the device is connected to Internet and an update is available, it is downloaded and installed automatically.

If you would like to disable automatic updates, change the Enable Firmware Updates selection to False.

Protocol Configuration

Most panels on the Configuration page are dedicated to configuring the different data protocols supported by the device. The YDWG RAW UDP control panel is shown below.
