  • Is there a way to check if Ipv6 subnet (prefix) is routed to the VPS?
    2 projects | | 29 Jan 2022
    I had the same problem, IPv6 was working but the browsers were not using IPv6 at all, IPv6 test showed IPv6 was available but the browser was avoiding it, so I changed the subnet from fd00:00:00::0/8 to 2000:00:00::0/8. If you use any script like to install Wireguard, when it asks you to choose IPv6 subnet the change ULA to GUA and your device will start using IPv6 by default, just enable ipv6 forwarding in /etc/sysctl.conf

  • Android and Windows Clients Work, Ubuntu Client doesn't get internet
    2 projects | | 22 May 2021
    I setup a Wireguard server on a VPS using this script on Ubuntu Server 20.04. My Android and Windows client work and connect fine, but when I try to add a Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 (minimal install) client, it looks like it connects, but I can't ping the private IP of the Wireguard server or and get no internet. I created a client config on the server using that script
    2 projects | | 22 May 2021
    I used a script to create the config, so I'm not 100% certain I'm reading it right, but I believe that list of allowed IP's is listing all public IP ranges excluding the private IP ranges like but including which the wireguard server uses. I wanted to be able to make LAN connections to other devices on my local network (which is also in the range, I'm on a campus network. But the 10.8.0.x range hasn't interfered with anything yet on my other devices). With Wireguard enabled on the Ubuntu desktop client, I can still access the local network, but not the internet. And from my Android phone, I can get to the web interface of my local home assistant server by IP address when connected to Wireguard. On Windows I had to uncheck "Block untunneled traffic (kill switch)" to allow LAN connections.
