MX Linux 17.1 and Wireguard

#1 Post by devva231 »

I have a Dell Optiplex 7010 Mini-Tower, Quad Core i7 3770 (3.4GHz), 16GB DDR3 SDRAM, 1TB Hard Drive; Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on the internal HDD and MX Linux 17.1 64-bit on the secondary (mobile-rack) SSD. I'm looking into getting a VPN set-up exclusively on the Linux dedicated SSD. I have whittled down the possibilities to three VPNs, which use either OpenVPN or Wireguard. So my questions are:

1. Does MX Linux 17.1 have support for Wireguard, either via Network Manager or other means?

I have always turned off the PC when not in use. This means I go in through Windows 'Turn Off Computer', and once that is done, I flip the power switch between the computer and outlet, and cut the power.

2. Will this force me to reconfigure the VPN setup each time, or can it be made 'persistent' to come back on at boot?
