  • Does the Tailscale package install Wireguard kernel headers?

    On the otherhand I can see where this is coming from because instead of having to compile wireguard yourself for dsm7 (for example as provided by but can simply install the tailscale 3rd party package via package manager of all you need is the underlying wireguard files.

  • [Guide] Using VPN with Docker Containers on DSM 7
    5 projects | /r/synology | 6 Feb 2022
    Has anyone gotten this to work with Wireguard, though? I know Gluetun supports it, but in all of my attempts I cannot get it to work with Synology, even using this package that supposedly adds the required backend support for Wireguard.
  • Fastest way to set up second NAS for hyper backup
    2 projects | /r/synology | 12 Jan 2022
    I could also have configured the remote nas to connect to my own vpn server (running rapsbian on a raspberry pi using vpn server whichboffers ipenvpn or wireguard) but as I already switched from openvpn (which synology supports natively) to wireguard, that option wasn't easily possible (might maybe also have a docker solution or via which also deals with having to start things manually on dsm7 as no longer 3rd party services are allowed to be started), hence I stayed with Zerotier.

  • Separate Docker Container for VPN?
    3 projects | /r/synology | 24 Aug 2021
    Here’s the “howto” I used to get it working “back in the day”. I had to replace wireguard for OpenVPN as Synology doesn’t support Wireguard directly, and I didn’t feel like installing unofficial kernel plugins
  • Is anyone successfully running Wireguard with a ui in Docker on their Synology box?
    2 projects | /r/synology | 4 Jul 2021
    I'm struggling to find an answer to this after hours of googling and trying a few docker images. I am aware of the third party synology-wireguard package but I would prefer either a docker solution (or a native Synology solution). Can anyone point me to a decent tutorial that you have used or point me in the right direction. I feel like I'm missing something obvious here as I would assume this is a common ask ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
