Wireguard

To date, I haven't had the need to use it. So who uses it? And for what purpose?

I use it to connect my US VPS as well as trying to use it to connect to AirVPN but its been iffy lately there.

The theory is its lighter on resources than OpenVPN, a cleaner/smaller code base and it works on the principle the connection is assumed always up - so you don't get the firewall bouncing problems of OpenVPN when it has to re-connect.  Its supposed to make it more stable on lossy networks as packet loss doesn't mean bringing down the connection and establishing the link again, though its not really been my experience.

I run Wireguard on a RaspberryPi installed using PiVPN <https://www.pivpn.io/>. It allows me to connect to the Internet via my home when I am away.

Wireguard is working well today, MUCH faster than OpenVPN.


Not sure why upload is so low on OpenVPN, maybe an issue with that AirVPN server:


OpenVPN is basically CPU bound here on the Celeron N5105 in the router.
