What is VPN ?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows users to send and receive data through shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Thus, applications running on an end-system (PC, smartphone, etc.) over a VPN may benefit from individual network features, protection, and management. Encryption is a standard aspect of a VPN connection but not an intrinsic one.

What is WireGuard

WireGuard is a straightforward yet fast and modern VPN that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPsec while avoiding the massive headache. It intends to be considerably more performant than OpenVPN. WireGuard is designed as a general-purpose VPN for running on embedded interfaces and super computers alike, fit for many circumstances. Initially released for the Linux kernel, it is now cross-platform (Windows, macOS, BSD, iOS, Android) and widely deployable. It is currently under a massive development, but it already might be regarded as the most secure, most comfortable to use, and the simplest VPN solution in the industry.


  • robust and modern security by default
  • minimal config and critical management
  • fast, both low-latency and high-bandwidth
  • simple internals and small protocol surface area
  • simple CLI and seamless integration with system networking


  • Alma, Alpine, Arch, Archarm, CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, Kali, Mint, Manjaro, Neon, Oracle, Pop, Raspbian, RHEL, Rocky, Ubuntu
  • Linux Kernel 3.1 or newer
  • You will need superuser access or a user account with sudo privilege.


Lets first use curl and save the file in /usr/local/bin/

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/complexorganizations/wireguard-manager/main/wireguard-manager.sh --create-dirs -o /usr/local/bin/wireguard-manager.sh

Then let's make the script user executable

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/wireguard-manager.sh

It's finally time to execute the script

bash /usr/local/bin/wireguard-manager.sh

In your /etc/wireguard/clients directory, you will have .conf files. These are the peer configuration files. Download them from your WireGuard Interface and connect using your favorite WireGuard Peer.

Which WireGuard client do you recommend?

Is there WireGuard documentation?

How do I install a wireguard without the questions? (Headless Install)

  • ./wireguard-manager.sh --install

Are there any good alternative to self-hosting vpn?

Why is all the code in one place?

  • Consider a remote control, you can have thirty different remotes each doing a different job, or you may have a single remote that does everything.

Which port do I need to forward for wireguard, and which protocol should I use?

  • On the udp protocol, either the port of your choice or the default port of 51820 must be forwarded.

For unbound, which ports do I need to forward?

  • Because all DNS traffic is routed through the vpn, you don't need to forward those ports 53.

What is blocked if I enable the content blocker?

  • Advertisement, Tracking, malware, and phishing are all prohibited.

What kind of information is collected and how is it gathered?

  • We do not collect or retain any logs; everything takes place on the system, and logs are never sent outside of it.

If I want to set up my own VPN server, what should I purchase?

How much should the entire cost of constructing your own VPN be?

  • The hardware has a one-time cost of roughly $75 USD, as well as monthly costs of energy and internet.
