In this section, we cover how to install Mycelium. For this guide, we will show the steps on a full VM running on the TFGrid.

Currently, Linux, macOS and Windows are supported. On Windows, you must have wintun.dll in the same directory you are executing the binary from.

Full VM Example

  • Deploy a Full VM with Planetary network and SSH into the VM
  • Update the system
    apt update
  • Download the latest Mycelium release:
  • Extract Mycelium
    tar -xvf mycelium-x86_64-unknown-linux-musl.tar.gz
  • Move Mycelium to your path
    mv mycelium /usr/local/bin
  • Start Mycelium
    mycelium --peers tcp:// quic:// --tun-name utun2
  • Open another terminal
  • Check the Mycelium connection information (address: ...)
    mycelium inspect --json
  • Ping the VM from another machine with IPv6
    ping6 mycelium_address
