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 macOS.

Steps on how to use it for any OS

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

Firstly let's download and install the Wireguard official client from the Apple AppStore.

Step 3

Now, let's save our wireguard client configs that you have at step 1

Open the Terminal and with your text editor of choice create the file where ever you like the most, I'll call the file rsb-vpn.conf - the name is the least relevant here, but the extension is all that we care about - .conf

nano rsb-vpn.conf

Copy-paste the configs inside the file

Press Control+x then press y to save

Step 4

Finally, open the Wireguard client app and import the config file.

Then hit Allow, when prompted about adding the config file.

Activate the connection.

If you see Status: active, you're done. Enjoy
