Changes in WireGuard® implementation

author David Wibergh, about Announcements

In our release statement for the WireGuard beta test we mentioned that changes to our implementation might occur. We can now notify that two changes have been implemented:

Streaming services

Enable streaming services is now enabled for all WireGuard connections. It is not possible to disable the feature. The streaming services setting in the profile page only affects OpenVPN.

The reason for this is that since we push all WireGuard keys to all servers, the additional firewall rules create inefficiencies and slower throughput. By enabling streaming services for all WireGuard users, our VPN servers no longer need to create thousands of routing rules.

Port forwards

Port forwards for WireGuard are now connected to specific keypairs, instead of all keypairs.

The reason for this is that our initial implementation had a bug, causing port forwards to only work for the keypair that was last created.
