Wireguard support

Postby rage77 » Fri Nov 27, 2020 3:55 pm

Hi!

I would like to request Wireguard support for Asustor NAS. PPT and OpenVPN is supported since way back in the day, now there's a new and improved protocol that is more stable and less resource demanding. Would be awesome if we could have this supported by default in our NAS.

I second this request. WireguaRd is definitely more efficient and fast, and most modern VPN servers are using it now.

While we are adding it, can we add split tunneling? Would be nice to have some apps run through the VPN and others bypass it without having to manually toggle the VPN off and on constantly.

Hi,

This require an update of the kernel and some modules
I have try to compile the kernel module (I do it on other platform) for 4.14.x
... x seem to be 88 in A.D.M. (so generate error when compiling kernel modules) when builtin and external modules need to be in at least 4.14.18x for a correct compile of wireguard module (even compile works, loading failed because other modules need are not at correct level (some udp (udptunnel for ex.)

So the solution is to ask Asustor to add the module or update the kernel to integrate patches require.

Sent a ticket and asked Asustor to add Wireguard support. Don't know if this is ever going to happen though...

Probably not. Except for ADM, everything else is pretty much abandonware and I have yet to see the first feature request honored by Asustor.

When my product no longer lives up to my demands I'm tossing it and switching to another brand. This abandonware thingy with apps and features really sucks.

Hi,

Wireguard was difficult to implement (kernel module) with 4.14.x ... due to compatibility problems (missing ipv6 structure in 4.14.88 base of 4.14.x from Asustor)
with A.D.M. 4 and new kernel (5.x) this issue are off ... so if kernel source is correctly provide by Asustor ... module must be available when GPL source is out.

For the tools to manipulate wireguard ... Entware APKG include it and dus to the fact it's command line interface ... script-server APKG can create a WebUI for this command ...

But sure if Asustor can provide kernel module directly ... it can be a good idea ... even modules change frequently ... and it's not due to Asustor :D

AFAIK, WireGuard version 1.0 is a part of Linux Kernel 5.6. But ADM4 is based on Linux Kernel 5.4. Are you sure that with newer ADM chances are higher to get Wireguard working?
