Setup wireguard on local pc and mac laptop (acces from wan remote desktop)

Hi all. I need to setup fast and save connection to access my windows pc (remote desktop) from my mac from wan. I choosed wireguard for connection and will be great to find tool for remote desktop between mac and windows pc windows (server) mac (client) network specs: router lan address: 192.168.2.1 pc lan address: 192.168.2.3 standard 255 255 255 0 mask all devices have static lan addresses I have static wan ip After install wigeuard I made tunnel named "1". Now I can see that I have 2 new network adapters "wg_server" and "1" - if connection is active. When connection is active I cant access other local network devices and cant ping them, I cant even access router gui but this is only lan device I can ping Ping routerwith wireguard off: Reply from 192.168.2.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64 ping router with wireguard on: Reply from 192.168.2.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128 My current wireguard config: server: [Interface] PrivateKey = xxxx ListenPort = 21370 Address = 192.168.2.1/24 Client: [Interface] PrivateKey = Address = 192.168.2.101/24 [Peer] Endpoint = wan ip:21370 AllowedIPs = 0.0.0.0/0 PublicKey = xxxxx

Just to make sure I'm reading this right, you're wanting to access LAN devices from the Windows server while it's connected to the VPN? If so, you'll probably need to tweak the AllowedIPs setting

Alright, so is the issue not being able to connect or not being able to see devices (or the internet) on wireguard?

Gotcha, so couple of things you'll have to address. First, to make the LAN devices available on the Windows machine, you'll need to tweak the configuration and allow the local subnet. Found a reddit post that'll walk you through that: https://www.reddit.com/r/WireGuard/comments/e5mm3z/how_to_allow_local_ips_on_windows_10_client/
