WireGuard® is an extremely simple yet fast and modern VPN that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPSec, while avoiding the massive headache. It intends to be considerably more performant than OpenVPN.
This snap packages the wireguard-go userspace executable (https://git.zx2c4.com/wireguard-go/about/) and the wg and wg-quick binaries built from the main repo (https://git.zx2c4.com/WireGuard/about/).
With an overlay, /etc/wireguard is mapped to $SNAP_COMMON (conventionally /var/snap/wireguard-ammp/common) - so this is where you should put configuration files such as wg0.conf.
Once the config file is in place and you've connected the network-control and firewall-control interaces, run
sudo wireguard-ammp.wg-quick up wg0
to bring up the interface.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
