WireGuard has native client installations for both Android and iOS that we can use to test or monitor our Telnyx Edge instances.

Android/iOS and the Telnyx Network

This is probably the easiest way to test out the service with a simple and effortless 3 steps to follow.

Step 1: Telnyx Configuration for Android/iOS

Reference the introduction to Telnyx Networking section located here: Telnyx Configuration

Copy and take note of the Peer Configuration file along with the private key that you got assigned from the above tutorial, it should look like the following:

Peer Configuration file.

Step 2: WireGuard Setup for Android/iOS

Install the client on your preferred platform; Android or iOS

On the top right, there will be a + button for us to add a peer. Click on it.
Here we can add the configuration settings that we generated from Step 1.

The interface should look like the following for Android and iOS respectively:

WireGuard section.
Edit configuration section.

Step 3: Test

We can test to see if it's working by checking the portal and seeing the last seen status change:

Mission Control Portal.

or you can curl/trace into your server to confirm the Global IP that is configured to it.

Example Response:

--- ping statistics ---

round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 183.040/183.495/184.512/0.471 ms
