Setting up the C2

Installation and Quick Start

To install the Client and Server docker on the same host and set everything up, simply:

wget -O - | bash
cd tuoni

Or if you prefer shorter curl:

curl | bash
cd tuoni

CLI Autocomplete

The setup will also install shell tuoni autocomplete for bash and zsh. You need to source the autocomplete script to enable it in the setup shell:

source ~/.bashrc
source ~/.zshrc
depending on the shell you are using.

All the new shell sessions will have the autocomplete enabled.

After running the installation script and sourcing the relevant rc file, just execute:

tuoni start

This will start the client on port 12702 and server on port 8443 by default using snakeoil certificates. You can change the server port and certificates by editing the config/tuoni.yml file.

The client docker uses nginx docker proxy on port 12702 by default using snakeoil certificates. You can change the port and certificates by editing the docker-compose.yml file.
