Manual Installation

  • Install WireGuard client
    • To begin securing your network, if you don’t already have WireGuard installed, download and install the latest WireGuard Windows Client. This simple step ensures you have the foundational software needed for a secure connection.
  • Install WireSock VPN Gateway
    • Next, enhance your network capabilities by downloading and installing the appropriate WireSock VPN Gateway installer for your target platform. Choose the installer that corresponds to your system architecture to ensure optimal performance.


Setup WireGuard Server

To configure your server, start a command prompt as Administrator and execute the following command:

wg-quick-config -add -start

Be sure to record the UDP port number displayed, as it will be crucial for later steps. The screenshot below offers a visual guide through the menu you will navigate.

Carefully follow the prompts to configure your WireGuard server endpoint. Remember to take note of the UDP port – it is essential for your VPN’s functionality.

Port Forwarding

For a seamless connection, set up port forwarding by consulting the port forwarding guide specific to your home router or VPS provider. Proper configuration here is key to ensuring your VPN is accessible from outside your local network.


Encountering issues? If you face any challenges with your VPN after installation or updates, a system reboot can often resolve these problems. Should the difficulties persist, reach out for support by posting a message in our dedicated support forum.
