Windows installation

Instructions to install Gunbot on a Windows machine.


  1. Unpack the release .zip file to a new folder
  2. Start running Gunbot by double clicking gunthy-win.exe
  3. Open localhost:5000 in a browser on the same system to access the Gunbot GUI. Modern browsers recommended, preferably Chrome or Firefox.
  4. The interface will prompt you to create a password, and configure the exchange connection.


On some Windows installations the file will be blocked by default and won't open. If that happens, right click gunthy-win.exe and open the properties dialog. Then use the unblock option:

Unblocking is needed on some Windows installations


Depending on your systems settings, you may need to add a firewall rule to allow for incoming traffic on TCP port 5000.

Security notice

Gunbot is intended to run on your local system. Making the Gunbot GUI available from outside networks is inherently risky, only do so on your own responsibility.

Considerable efforts went into securing the GUI, but please understand that achieving 100% security is not realistic.
