Setting up a Free and Open Source VPN Server

Why pay for a VPN service when you can set your own up for free?

Setting up your own VPN on your network is quite simple and a free and robust solution is available with WireGuard. I'm now able to establish a secure internet connection on public wifi straight through my home network, enabling me to access my network drive and remote desktop into my own workstation. I considered using openVPN, however, the consensus seems to be that WireGuard is faster and easier to set up. I finished writing the full documentation, so please check it out. I hope you find it useful! Let me know in the comments if you have any thoughts about WireGuard, or setting up your own VPN in general.
