Gateway Proxy

The Gateway Proxy tool is more than just a proxy, it offers a range of useful functionalities for node operators and Swarm developers. For more in depth documentation of its features, refer to its README doc on GitHub.

Public Gateway

The tool can be used to set up a public gateway which can be used to host public facing applications or websites to users on the web who aren't running Bee nodes.

Stamp Management

In addition to acting as a proxy, it also includes convenient features for managing stamps such as automatically buying new stamps or automatically extending the life of existing stamps.


Authentication can also be enabled so that only authorized requests are fulfilled. This is a useful feature for protecting your node if its API endpoint is publicly exposed.
