Introduction

We recently added the Wireguard VPN protocol to both the Lean Seedbox and the Premium Seedbox, so in this article, we will show you how to use it if you are using Windows.

Premium Seedbox

Step 1

As of this moment, Wireguard doesn't come preinstalled on the Premium Seedboxes, so the first step is the installation. Please use the One-Click Installers to install it.

Step 2

After you've installed Wireguard through the OCI, log in to your HTTPS Web Access and access the Wireguard configuration file and the QR code.

Step 3

From here, everything is the same on both Seedbox Plans.

To continue, please move to Step 2 from the Lean Seedbox section.

Lean Seedbox

Step 1

From your Client Area, login to the Wireguard configuration page.

After entering your credentials you'll see your Wireguard Configuration page, which would look like this.

Step 2

Download and install the official Wireguard Client application which is a literally 2-click process.

Step 3

Where ever you want on your Windows create a blank text file and copy+paste your Wireguard configuration there.

Be careful that as you name the file, give it any name you want and at the end of the name add .conf . This is mandatory!

You can ignore the warning and continue by hitting Yes.

Open it with notepad and paste the configurations inside the file.

Step 4

Open the Wireguard Client application and import the .conf file.

Step 5

The last step is to activate the connection, routing your entire traffic through the Wireguard VPN tunnel.

If you're receiving traffic then the tunnel is functional and working properly.
