  • [Networking] The fall of PFsense's Reptuation
    The wireguard maintainer, Jason Donenfeld, is pretty darn active about getting wireguard adopted across all platforms. He has developed executables for just about every popular platform there is. The creator of Linux has praised his efforts. He's a pretty big deal.

  • VPN constantly disconnects
    I got constant disconnects with the PIA Android client (which seems to misinterpret any packet loss as a disconnect despite WireGuard being a connectionless protocol) so I switched to using the official WireGuard client instead with the help of my Linux shell script for PIA which I also use on my desktop.

    Don't the official wireguard clients work? https://www.wireguard.com/install/
  • Any way to force SoulseekQT to only work through my VPN?
    reddit.com/r/Soulseek | 2021-07-23
    Forget the VPN client supplied by the service. Instead, download certificates/config files and use third party VPN software like WireGuard.

  • noob webcam question
  • Is WireGuard / OpenVPN dead on CaC
    Just fired up a Developer v4 instance, and used Angristan's Wireguard setup script to deploy a VPN server. Fully functional for both my Windows client and Android client. Using both IPv4 & IPv6, with Cloudflare for my clients' DNS resolvers. No VPN leakage detected.
