Use our Wireguard VPN on Linux

Do you feel you need more security? Learn how to use our Wireguard VPN tunnel and secure your network connections while masking your IP

Updated over a week ago


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.

Disclaimer: I will use Ubuntu 18.04 for this example, but this is a general tutorial for any Linux Distro out there.

Step 2

Open the preferred Terminal app and let's get to work.

Firstly, let install wireguard. Switch to the root user and do:

apt update; apt install wireguard resolvconf -y 

You may check the official install guide if you will:

Step 3

Now, after that's installed, you need to save the configurations and for that open your text editor of choice and paste the configurations inside /etc/wireguard/wg0.conf:

nano /etc/wireguard/wg0.conf

TIP: Use CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste inside the Terminal

Use CTRL+X to exit and Y to save the file.

This is how yours should look also.

Step 4

Finally, let's bring up the connection with: wg-quick up wg0 and if you want to bring the connection down you can do it with wg-quick down wg0.

If you want to always connect to this VPN tunnel at boot then, on your host run:

sudo systemctl enable --now [email protected]

Step 5

Check your new IP from here.
