Install a WireGuard VPN client & server in a few minutes

Installation of WireGuard server in CoreELEC:

1.- Install the docker addon if you haven’t done this yet.
2.- From an SSH terminal execute the command:

 docker create \
 --name=wireguard \
 --cap-add=NET_ADMIN \
 --cap-add=SYS_MODULE \
 -e PUID=1000 \
 -e PGID=1000 \
 -e TZ=Europe/Paris \
 -e SERVERURL=<external_ip_of_server_or_ddns> \
 -e SERVERPORT=51820 \
 -e PEERS=test,x96air,rpi4,odroid<,other_devices> \
 -e PEERDNS= \
 -p 51820:51820/udp \
 -v /storage/.config/wireguard:/config \
 -v /lib/modules:/lib/modules \
 --sysctl="net.ipv4.conf.all.src_valid_mark = 1" \
 --restart unless-stopped \
 --net=host \

3.- Start the server in SSH with: docker start wireguard
4.- The client configuration files are in /storage/.config/wireguard

Note.- --net=host allows identifying the IP of each of the clients

Installation of WireGuard client in CoreELEC:

Create the file /storage/.config/wireguard/wireguard.config with the following content:

 Type = WireGuard
 Name = WireGuard VPN
 Host = <external _ip_of_server_or_ddns>
 Domain = COREELEC
 WireGuard.Address = <private_ip_addres_from_file_peer_test.conf_in_server>/32
 WireGuard.PrivateKey = <privatekey_from_file_peer_test.conf_in_server>
 WireGuard.PublicKey = <publickey_from_file_peer_test.conf_in_server>
 WireGuard.DNS =,
 WireGuard.AllowedIPs =
 WireGuard.EndpointPort = 51820
 WireGuard.PersistentKeepalive = 25

Next in Kodi System-CoreELEC-Connections enable WireGuard VPN.

In android it is even easier, you just have to import the file peer_test.conf from the server to the WireGuard application.

Note.- The server and client may not work in LibreELEC and you may suffer a headache for this reason, all because the developers have blacklisted wireguard. Edit the file /storage/.config/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and remove wireguard from the blacklist.
