- Install a Linux operating system on a computer that will host the VPN server. WireGuard is primarily developed for Linux, and it is recommended to use a distribution that is actively maintained and has good support for WireGuard, such as Debian or Ubuntu.
- Install the WireGuard kernel module and userspace tools on the server. This can usually be done using the package manager of the Linux distribution that you are using.
- Generate a private/public key pair for the server and for each client that will connect to the VPN. This can be done using the “wg” command-line utility that is included with WireGuard.
- Create a configuration file for the VPN server and for each client. The configuration file specifies the parameters of the VPN connection, such as the IP addresses, ports, and keys.
- Start the WireGuard VPN server using the configuration file. This can usually be done using the “wg-quick” utility, which is included with WireGuard.
- Configure the firewall on the VPN server to allow incoming connections to the WireGuard port. On Linux, this can be done using the “iptables” utility.
- Connect the clients to the VPN server using the client configuration files and the “wg-quick” utility.
We recommended to read the WireGuard documentation and online resources for more detailed instructions on how to set up a WireGuard VPN server. You may also need to configure the router and firewall settings of the network that the VPN server is connected to in order to allow incoming connections to the VPN.
