Today we successfully tested wireguard to provide IPv6 VPNs to our customers. It turned out that it is so easy to get it running that we decided to put it into production right away.
We have also open sourced the setup of our vpn infrastructure so that you can easily replicate it, if you are a service provider.
Last but not least, if you are looking to get an /48 IPv6 network, you can get it exclusively on our crowdfunding page. It is encrypted from your point to our endpoint in Switzerland and you can use it through NAT and with dynamic IPv4 addresses.
OpenVPN vs. wireguard
You might wonder why we are offering wireguard based IPv6 VPNs instead of OpenVPN. There are two reasons for it:
- OpenVPN does not work without IPv4 inside the tunnel (tested on openvpn 2.4.0)
- Wireguard works with plain public/private crypto and does not need certificates - this makes handling much easier
