Long story so ill try keep it quick.

 

I've Recently moved from Orcon to Voyager as they were highly recommended. Now can not get WireGuard to connect. I use wireguard to access Unraid and a Win10 VM running BlueIris.

 

Wireguard on Unraid was working mint before the change. Things I've tried since the change to get this working.

 

  • Reinstall WireGuard on Unraid, Android and Windows Laptop with all new keys etc.
  • Changing the Default UDP Port did not work.
  • Changed router from Pfsense to a FritzBox! - Nightmare job reconfiguring the network do not recommend doing that again was a waste of time.
  • Calling Voyager was pretty pointless as the lady had to call her manager and then called me back with a sorry we can help contact your VPN Host. Um that is me!
  • Then sent me an email with a forum post from 4 years ago for OVPN.
  • Tried Lowering WireGuard MTU to 1000 from 1492(Voyager recommended via a link to this Forum post).

The conclusion I have come to is UDP getting blocked by Voyager as all online port checkers are showing as blocked.

 

Do i stay with Voyager and keep trying to get something working? Possibly with OpenVPN on PFsense? Or can anyone recommend an ISP that works?

Silly question, Did you update your public IP in the WG config etc etc etc?





Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Yep that happens when you re install WireGuard and with the port changes you need to generate new keys.

Heya @shrub

 

Voyager does not shape, or firewall your connections.
We will not be preventing any traffic to or from your connection.

 

I would recommend checking any firewall/NAT policies on your CPE - specifically if they're bound to a previous IP etc.

 

Feel free to PM me with any details you need to assist if you are still having issues.

If that was the case, a WHOLE bunch of stuff wouldn't work either. I'm guessing a NAT rule is still referencing your old public IP, hence not forwarding traffic.

 

Also, most of the "port checkers" only test for TCP applications.

This has now gone a bunch weirder. I have just rebooted ONT and pfsense. Its now magically working again. I have rebooted numerous times over the week and got nothing and this time it works... 

 

Its good to know Voyager truly is unlimited. 

 

Thankyou

There's nothing "magic" about routers... They do what they're told, either by the user or via automation of some kind - e.g. dynamically adding addresses to firewall rules based on the interface.

i wouldn't go that far... mikrotik have some really fancy "magic" that can really make for a bad day if you leave it to it's own devices!

Correct that is why my rb750 is back in its box collecting dust on the shelf.

Haha that's my point though. They do what they are told - if you don't set stuff, it won't do what you want it to do.
