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 Linux.

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.

Disclaimer: I will use Ubuntu 18.04 for this example, so all the above versions (20.04; 21.10) will also work just fine using this method.

Step 2

Open you 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 

Check the official install guide if you will: https://www.wireguard.com/install/

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

Step 5

Check your new IP from here.
