To connect to your AlgoVPN using WireGuard from Ubuntu, first install WireGuard:
# Ubuntu 19.04 and earlier: # Add the WireGuard repository sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wireguard/wireguard # Ubuntu 17.10 and earlier: # Update the list of available packages sudo apt update # Install the tools and kernel module: sudo apt install wireguard openresolv
For installation on other Linux distributions, see the Installation page on the WireGuard site.
The Algo-generated config files for WireGuard are named
configs/<ip_address>/wireguard/<username>.conf on the system where you ran
./algo. One file was generated for each of the users you added to
config.cfg. Each WireGuard client you connect to your AlgoVPN must use a different config file. Choose one of these files and copy it to your Linux client.
Finally, install the config file on your client as
/etc/wireguard/wg0.conf and start WireGuard:
# Install the config file to the WireGuard configuration directory on your # Linux client: sudo install -o root -g root -m 600 <username>.conf /etc/wireguard/wg0.conf # Start the WireGuard VPN: sudo systemctl start wg-quick@wg0 # Check that it started properly: sudo systemctl status wg-quick@wg0 # Verify the connection to the AlgoVPN: sudo wg # See that your client is using the IP address of your AlgoVPN: curl ipv4.icanhazip.com # Optionally configure the connection to come up at boot time: sudo systemctl enable wg-quick@wg0
If your Linux distribution does not use
systemd you can bring up WireGuard with
sudo wg-quick up wg0.
