Wireguard is rubbish

Question

EricD

I accepted the new wireguard in my latest upgrade and after a couple of days of use it just hangs on "reconnecting". Lucky it's not a car as I would have no brakes or steering.

Wireguard as a protocol is excellent, I just gave TG's implementation a spin and it's working fine on Windows 10 though I haven't used it for a prolonged period of time. I also run a home Linux server with a Wireguard server so I can VPN in from wherever I am and speeds are excellent.

Have you submitted logs etc to the support desk? This is only a user forum with occasional additions from the TG team.

I think you waste your time, this user just came to show anger and probably left long time ago. If he would be unsatisfied, he had enough time to test it and can get his money back if any was paid. He could write to support, he could ask here, he could seek for help elsewhere too, but no, without any understand this guy means a protocol is rubbish, even Mr. Linux implemented it into kernel ;)

I can only confirm your post about excellent protocol. It is quite new and newbies have to look longer for the info but on other side it is the most simple protocol. On one location, I had some headache not knowing why my servers cant be reached from outside, it worked only sometimes and only if peer was locally connected. As the config is bulletproof and applied on other places, I could actually take out possibility that on my side is something wrong, so I checked the ISP and bang, the ISP uses APN behind a proxy, that was the flash then, as peer cant establish then a connection unless one was established previously (explains in fact why connection locally and then remotly worked for some period of time). At the end, simply changing my APN to one with a fixed ip which also can port forward and uses no proxy, from that point everything worked like a charm.

The story about APN is the only issue which I actually had with running wireguard server before resolving it. On the same time, I can confirm that TorGuard's VPN servers never had issues with mobile providers even if they are behind a proxy.

every car is unlucky if its driver cant drive, you wouldnt drive a car without brakes or steering, what made you then confident to drive at all? I guess nobody forced you to use wireguard, whatever protocol you did use, why did you switch at all?

So, why is wireguard rubbish as a protocol? I guess I did not understand your comment.
