Meile dVPN GUI for Linux, OS X, and Windows - Powered by the Sentinel Network - a blockchain decentralized VPN.

Full Version

The full version 1.8.0 has been released to GitHub. Branches include main, osx-fiat-intel, windows, fiat, osx-fiat, pip. The exception is that we did not include the which contains credentials for the FIAT gateway. Please navigate the various branches to understand the different interworkings. It is our intention to eventually merge all branches into a unified code source.


The current release is version 1.8.0. Please note this does not use Windows APIs to ask for Administration privleges and relies on an open source implementation called "gsudo". Gsudo is just a hack to ask the user to modify network adapters so that Meile may connect without issue.

Also, Meile opens a debug console in the background. Do not close this otherwise the app will close as well. We are working on getting a Microsoft Developers Certificate so we may sign the app for official release. Also, when we get the certificate we will eliminate the debug console as well. This is all in the works.

Download: Meile for Windows (v1.8.0)

Mac OS X

Download the latest release as a DMG: Mac OS X v1.8.0

The OS X M1/M2 and Intel builds are packaged as a disk image (DMG). To install, simply download the correct DMG for your architecture (Intel or Apple Silicon). Double click on the DMG file and move the Meile app bundle to your desktop or to the Applications folder.

Both the OS X Intel and Apple Silicon release are signed by a Apple Developer Certificate. There should be no errors when running these.


pip install is not currently available for Mac OS X. We are working on bringing this as a separate packages.

Debian .deb package

The latest version of Meile GUI comes packaged as a Debian archive. Simply download the latest release: Meile Releases

and run apt for your build:

sudo apt install -y ./meile-gui-v1.8.0_ubuntu22.04_amd64.deb

This release will install wireguard tools, resolvconf, curl, and net-tools alongside the Meile GUI. To connect to nodes or disconnect requires "sudo" privileges. You will be prompted by your system dialog to enter your username's password to give authorization to complete the connection. This is due to how Linux handles permissions with regards to network interfaces.



Or goto your panel menu under Internet and there will be a clickable icon.

Debian Virtual Machine (.deb)

Because there were issues loading certain mesa OpenGL drivers in various Debian Virtual Machines, we have included a separate .deb archive that automatically configures the system to handle the Meile dependencies. Please use this version if you are running a Debian flavor in a virutal machine (VM).

Debian/Ubuntu 20.04 Virtual Machine

Debian/Ubuntu 22.04 Virtual Machine

Redhat/CentOS/Fedora (.rpm)

Download the latest RPM for RedHat releases:

RedHat RPM (fc36)

RedHat RPM (fc37)

Install the rpm from a terminal via dnf (RECOMMENDED):

sudo dnf install meile-gui-v1.8.0-1.fc36.x86_64.rpm

or via rpm:

sudo rpm -i meile-gui-v1.8.0-1.fc36.x86_64.rpm

dnf is recommended as it will install all dependencies for Meile to function correctly.

Installing via pip

Meile dVPN GUI v0.14.1 is now available as a pip packages as well. These are pre-releases scheduled to be built into a binary. First install system dependencies:

sudo apt install -y  wireguard-tools openresolv mesa-utils libgl1-mesa-glx xclip python3-devel curl net-tools python3-venv

Then install via pip

pip3 install meile-gui

via a virtual environment:

mkdir ~/venv && python3 -m venv ~/venv/meile
source venv/meile/bin/activate
pip3 install meile-gui

Upgrade via pip

pip3 install meile-gui --upgrade

To run Meile GUI after pip install do the following:



The FIAT gateway is not included in the pip package. This is due to certain credentials needing to remain secret for OPSEC reasons. The pip package will continue to get updated with the FIAT release with bug fixes and feature additions.

We consider the pip releases to be pre-releases of the compiled binaries. Pip is considered the bleeding edge of Meile releases

Packaged Binaries

We package the following binaries with our releases:

We have built tun2socks, v2ray, and sentinel-cli from source on the target architectures. Cloudflare warp is closed-source and so we packaged the binaries direct from the install link above.

Note: we use v2ray version 5.1.0 as this is what the dvpn-node software also uses and it is recommended to use the same client version as the server version.

All suggestions are welcome.

Creating a Binary for your distribution:

In order to create a binary for your distribution some packages need to be installed first.


pip3 install pyinstaller

Install a python virtualenv:

sudo apt install python3-venv

Then clone the repo:

git clone

Switch to the pip branch as this is the one without FIAT gateway

cd meile-gui && git checkout pip

Then run a python virtual environment and install meile-gui. This will find all the dependencies for meile-gui.

python3 -m venv meile-gui && \
source meile-gui/bin/activate && \ 
pip install -r requriements.txt  && pip install -e .

Once meile-gui and it's dependencies have been installed within the python virutal environment, a binary release can be created:

bash pyinstaller.cmd

That's it. Navigate to the dist folder where the binary will be.


For windows, install the necessary pip packages found in and run the following with pyinstaller

pyinstaller meile_gui.spec

This will build the binary found in the dist directory of the Meile tree.


Because we are working on a small grant with no VC funding, any additional contributions to our developer team is more than certainly welcomed. It will help fund future releases.
