[SOLVED] [Neo2] Can't install Wireguard on Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I'm running Armbian Ubuntu Server on my Neo2 and works quite good. I just can't install Wireguard. I have installed kernel headers from armbian config, bit still fails. I use the ppa repo. 

Kernel stable latest, 4.19.57

 

Any ideas how to proceed and install?

And what you get if you type:


modprobe wireguard

... module is already present.

Nothing, empty.

and what is dmesg saying ?

I'm feom phone now, but strange, last two lines of dmesg say ok. Even if I had error during apt install. 

 

[ 76.932990] wireguard: WireGuard 0.0.20190702 loaded. See
 www.wireguard.com for information.

What do you think, is it actually working?

Module is loaded and Armbian's job is done. Now you need to proceed to Wireguard manual to understand how to configure things. You can skip a part for compiling a kernel module since its a part of the kernel.

Excellent! I will do the configuration, sure. 

So it is not a problem that modprobe doesn't give anything back? Strange, that I had apt isntall error too. But I will check. Thanks.

That's normal. You will only get an error if module does not exists.

You always need to check what's in the kernel log after you load the module. There goes the output.

No idea since I am not the author of the software you are installing.

I managed to configure Wireguard on my remote NEO2 server and my home server. The NEO2 is configured as the server. It works amazing. Fast and easy, waaay faster then SSH tunneling, not to mentione OpenVPN. Sure, it maybe not as secure as OpenVPN or SSH, sinve no audit yet on Wireguard, but in my use case it is perfect. 

Great job and thanks for your support. 

It is awsome what a small piece of board like NEO2 can do with a great and optimized OS like Armbian :)
