I need to tunnel Wireguard thru a OpenVPN tunnel on a Windows client. Is it possible to use Wiresock to create a nested Wireguard —> OpenVPN tunnel? If possible, can you provide guidance on the configuration?
I installed OpenVPN and Wirguard Windows clients on a Windows device. I start the OpenVPN client to establish the OpenVPN tunnel. I then start the Wireguard client and want to tunnel through the OpenVPN but cannot get it to work. I removed 0.0.0.0/o and ::0 from the the Wireguard conf file.January 29, 2022 at 8:39 pm #12057Vadim SmirnovKeymaster
I had not tested nested tunnels with Open VPN Client, but I have tested the official Wireguard VPN Client along with Wiresock VPN Client to organize nested VPN tunnels:
WireSock VPN Client is compatible and can be used with official WireGuard for Windows to organize nested WireGuard tunnels completely on the client side. In such configuration, the official client organizes the external tunnel (to the first WireGuard Server instance) and WireSock VPN Client the internal one (to the second WireGuard Server instance). You only need to remember to adjust MTU parameter for the internal tunnel accordingly to avoid fragmentation and throughput degradation.
However, I can’t see why it could not work a similar way with Open VPN Client… But please note to use the Wiresock VPN Client instead of the official Wireguard for Windows.January 29, 2022 at 10:30 pm #12058
Thank you for the response. Can you provide the config files you used to tunnel Wiresock through Wireguard? I am new to this and trying to learn how to do this.January 30, 2022 at 2:59 pm #12059Vadim SmirnovKeymaster
I’ve just set a nested WireGuard tunnels setup to test and provide you with some examples. Regretfully, there is one problem, the last version of WireGuard for Windows I have tested nested wireguard/wiresock tunnels was v0.5, and it looks one of the more recent updates has broken this setup (internal handshake packet sent by wiresock can’t reach the destination).
However, recently, I have added a new feature to Wiresock which allows sending a handshake packet through the SOCKS5 server. Please see the related post on bypassing Egypt’s WireGuard ban here. And surprisingly, this allows to resolve the issue, handshake packet is not recognized by stock Wireguard and reaches its destination.
The Wireguard for Windows configuration (external tunnel):
[Interface] PrivateKey = PRIVATE_KEY_HERE Address = 10.10.11.3/24 DNS = 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 MTU = 1412 [Peer] PublicKey = PUBLIC_KEY_HERE AllowedIPs = 0.0.0.0/0 Endpoint = WIREGUARD_EXTERNAL_SERVER_IP:50812 PersistentKeepalive = 25
Wiresock VPN Client configuration(internal tunnel for Chrome browser only):
[Interface] PrivateKey = PRIVATE_KEY_HERE Address = 10.66.66.2/32, fd42:42:42::2/128 DNS = 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 MTU = 1332 [Peer] PublicKey = PUBLIC_KEY_HERE AllowedIPs = 0.0.0.0/0, ::/0 Endpoint = WIREGUARD_INTERNAL_SERVER_IP:50812 AllowedApps = chrome DisallowedIPs = 192.168.1.0/24 Socks5Proxy = SOCKS5_PROXY_ADDRESS:1080 Socks5ProxyUsername = SOCKS5_USERNAME Socks5ProxyPassword = SOCKS5_PASSWORD
SOCKS5 handshake feature is not released yet, but if you’re interested in testing it, then you can download binaries here. Just copy these over the installed ones in C:\Program Files\WireSock VPN Client\bin.January 30, 2022 at 3:30 pm #12060
Thank you for the response and taking the time to test and provide a solution.
