So as always there are a million things in tech and well it’s rare that someone knows EVERYTHING.  I must connect to a Wireguard VPN from a KALI VM. Should be simple, well actually it was a bit more complicated as I had two errors along the way!

Kali Wireguard

Install wireguard

sudo apt install wireguard -y

Import wireguard config to /etc/wireguard/:

cp /home/mrr3b00t/Desktop/Wgdemo.conf /etc/wireguard/

Now launch a tunnel:

sudo wg-quick up Wgdemo

Now you might get this error:

“/usr/bin/wg-quick: line 32: resolvconf: command not found”

To resolve this use:

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/resolvectl /usr/local/bin/resolvconf

or try

sudo apt install openresolv

you also may experience this:

“Failed to set DNS configuration: Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.resolve1.service not found.”

to resolve this enable the SYSTEMD RESOLVED service

systemctl enable systemd-resolved.service

Shutting down

We can turn off by simply running:

sudo wg-quick down Wgdemo

You can also configure wg to start on boot.

sudo systemctl enable –now [email protected]


There you go, that’s a really fast “getting started with Wireguard on KALI”
