To connect to your AlgoVPN using WireGuard from Ubuntu, make sure your system is up-to-date then install WireGuard:
# Update your system: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade # If the file /var/run/reboot-required exists then reboot: [ -e /var/run/reboot-required ] && sudo reboot # Install WireGuard: 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.
As of the
v1.0.20200510 release of
wireguard-tools WireGuard supports setting a DNS search domain. In your
wg0.conf file a non-numeric entry on the
DNS line will be used as a search domain. For example this:
DNS = 172.27.153.31, fd00::b:991f, mydomain.com
will cause your
/etc/resolv.conf to contain:
search mydomain.com nameserver 172.27.153.31 nameserver fd00::b:991f
