Hi abandonow,

We're keeping a close eye on it, however there is nothing offical we can report at this stage.

Cheers,
James

Wireguard support would be awesome, OpenVPN connection times are extremely long.

Hi,

That would be awesome indeed !

I get that since WireGuard is still a pretty new protocol, it is complicated to officially add support for it as of now. However as an alternative, may I suggest implementing a way to add support for external commandlines ? That way, we'd be able to connect / disconnect the wg commandline tool via Viscosity, but it wouldn't require any official implementation, no ?

Thanks!

Hi James,

We badly need WireGuard support, and you’re in a unique position to deliver it. You recently released Viscosity 1.8.2, which adds ARM64 support. As far as I’m aware, that makes Viscosity the only option for OpenVPN on the Surface Pro X.

Unfortunately, we Surface Pro X users have no way of running WireGuard. The official WireGuard app dies when it tries to load the x86 network (wintun) driver, since Windows 10 on ARM apparently doesn’t support x86 drivers.

WireGuard is comprised of only 4,000 lines of code, and OpenVPN’s days look numbered. Can you please give us WireGuard support—preferably this year? :D

Thanks!

Steve
