    Installed a working Wireguard configuration when I updated to 2.5.0. I tested it with Linux, Windows and Android Wireguard clients.

    That said was when the issues cropped up relating to IP6.

    I quit playing with Wireguard and disabled it for time bean.

    I was able to get 2.5.0 working with IP6 except that there were issues, then updated to 2.5.1 but still had issues.

    Relating to Wireguard I have read is that it is a good replacement for IPSec VPN but not so much for OpenVPN.

    Not too concerned at this time as my OpenVPN and IPSec VPN servers work great with Linux, Windows and Android clients.

    The IPSec configuration has a bit more to it than the OpenVPN configuration using the wizard.

    Will continue to test the Wireguard implementation on PFSense. I always tinker with PFSense adding this or that.

    IE: way back when I first connected the GPS with PPS device to PFSense it was a scripted add on then the PFSense folks added it to the base and I kept debugging it and posting on the bugs list and main forum. Sort of doing that now with the newest updated PFSense. In case of a total mess up I keep backups of the configuration, another drive with a working build and another computer with 4-6 NIC ports configured identically to main PFSense box. I will be doing the same "nagging" if I have issues with the Wireguard implementation.

    BTW the new CPE does IP6 fine. It is using T-Mobile network. No outside antenna at this time. 1 bar in the basement and 3 bars on the second floor. I might install it in the attic with a directional antenna. I patched the network cable to the second wan link on the PFSense box. It also provides a phone line via the RJ11 port. Only thing is that it is using an international type dial tone. With the old CPE I could configure it for use in the US. I can't do that yet.
