Introduction

We have recently introduced the Wireguard VPN protocol with the Lean Seedbox and in this article, we will teach you how to use it, for those of you who are using Windows.

Steps on how to use it

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 litterally 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 out Wireguard VPN tunnel and just check that it works.

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