Wireguard VPN (Raspberry PI)

WireGuard is a new VPN protocol that has recently been gaining a lot of popularity.

There are a couple of advantages to using the WireGuard VPN on your Raspberry Pi over OpenVPN.

WireGuard is much faster at making connections than OpenVPN, it can complete a connection within a tenth of a second.

The codebase for WireGuard is also drastically smaller then OpenVPN’s. This allows the software to be more secure thanks to the smaller attack surface and bugs being able to be dealt with easier.

For comparison sake, WireGuard only uses 4,000 lines of code compared to the 70,000+ lines of code that OpenVPN uses.

The only notable disadvantage of WireGuard is that it does store the connecting user’s IP addresses. It does this to improve the connection speed.

The reason for share this article is that we can use it with T3000 to acess the remote devices. you just needs a 1 Pi with wireguard running on your remote site and you can acess all of them from other network by adding them thorugh add remote devices popup . and for client end it can be a Pi or Windows PC.
Actually its create a secure VPN tunnel between the client and server end Communication.

  1. RaspberryPi3 with Rasbian OS
  2. 8GB microSD Card
  3. Pi-Power Source
  4. Ethernet Cable
  5. Putty Software for PC
  6. Public IP on Server Pi.


  • Connect Your Raspberry Pi with your PC through Ethernet Cable (RJ485)
  • Login to your Raspberry Pi using your User Name and Password using Putty software
  • Connect your PC to Internet

A new adapter created with wg0


will show the available interfaces on your Pi.

#sudo Su
#nono etc/wireguard/wg0.conf


PostUp PostDown

Copy the following command below DNS in server PI wg0.conf

PostUp = iptables -A FORWARD -i wg0 -j ACCEPT; iptables -A FORWARD -o wg0 -j ACCEPT; iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE; iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -j ACCEPT;

PostDown = iptables -D FORWARD -i wg0 -j ACCEPT; iptables -D FORWARD -o wg0 -j ACCEPT; iptables -t nat -D POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE; iptables -D FORWARD -i eth0 -j ACCEPT;

Above image it screenshot is the configuration of the wireguard server you can generate the clients configuration file by following the below steps.

Creating Profile for client

you just have to input the names of client file it will auto generate the configuration for that in configs folder.

How to make PI As a Client on VPN Wire Guard

Follow the Same above Step for Client PI VPN Wire Guard As for PI Server

Run this command on Client PI


Run the above commond also on Server PI


You have to copy the Client configuration text override on wg0.config and save it.

And restart the WireGuard service on Client PI

#systemctl restart wg-quick@wg0

You can Ping the sever to test weather wireguard is working by connecting you system on other netwok and activating the wirguard
