Re: Wireguard - No internet access with PiHole

Yes, that does seem like the same issue I have. To be clear I don't have any issue with Wireguard at all, the issue is with the PiVPN install (which is used for OpenVPN, not Wireguard). Wireguard is installed via dietpi-software and has no issue. It sounds like the issue described on Github is affec...

Re: Wireguard - No internet access with PiHole

Joulinar - on my Pi both WG and PiVPN (hosting OpenVPN) are installed, both via dietpi-software. Would that explain why I have to set the forwarding by script at reboot otherwise the OpenVPN cannot connect to anything outside the Pi (to my network or the Internet)? It's all working fine now, but on...

Re: WireGuard Updates not available

More generally, if you haven't already I would suggest looking into both fail2ban and unattended-upgrades as packages that might be useful to you (although the latter takes a little configuring to get running properly). The former can be installed within DietPi, the latter would be via apt or apt-get.

Re: Wireguard - No internet access with PiHole

One comment on that change - I had to do it on my Pi (hosting both Wireguard and PiVPN) and after reboot the change reverted (and PiVPN lost access to anything outside of the Pi). As a temporary measure I've set up a systemd service to run a script setting that traffic forwarding again on boot-up, b...

Re: PiVPN Not Setting Internet Traffic Forwarding (With Temporary Fix)

To come back to this one for a moment, I looked into sysctl.conf and see the line net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1 is correctly in there and uncommented, so in theory this should be set on reboot. However on my system the value is still resetting to zero at every reboot? So there's something wrong here that'...

PiVPN Not Setting Internet Traffic Forwarding (With Temporary Fix)

Just thought I'd report this here in case anyone else falls over it. Been rebuilding my VPN box (Pi2 with DietPi, Wireguard, PiVPN [for OpenVPN] and a few bits like Fail2Ban and RPI Monitor) and came across the problem with the OpenVPN server. It sets up fine and devices can connect to it via profil...

Re: Wireguard Fritzbox Network

Firstly posting private keys like the above in public is not a good idea. I would remove them as soon as you can from your post and then regenerate new ones on your devices. Your problem is you're mixing up the IP addresses of your normal network (your 192.168.178.x) with the proposed IP range of th...

Re: DietPi for newbie

One other small comment - when you put the uSD card back into the PC, if it's a Windows PC you'll see the boot partition as a new drive, but you may also see other drive(s) created which Windows will say has problems and will offer to try and fix them. Do not do this, as they are perfectly fine but ...

Re: Unwanted Shutdown of Dietpi Device

Concerning logs I've no idea, someone else will have to answer that.

It's just from experience of issues and shutdowns over the years with various Raspberry Pi's which almost always ended up as either being dying power supplies or occasionally dying uSD cards.

Re: Unwanted Shutdown of Dietpi Device

How old is the charger? Over time such hardware can tend to degrade, producing lower current and voltage which could perhaps cause such an issue if the device happens to do something requiring more juice (especially if anything's hooked up to the USB ports etc). First thing I'd do is either test wha...
