Connecting a native Wireguard Windows VPN client

Christopher Dakin

Whilst we recommend you use the LogonBox branded VPN client, as this automatically handles your client configuration files as well as supports multi-factor authentication, it is possible to use the native WireGuard clients with the LogonBox VPN.

The client configuration can be generated from the LogonBox VPN UI.


1. Configuring the client

Navigate to https://<logonboxserver> and log on with your user account into the User Portal.


You should be presented with the Overview page.

As we are using the WireGuard third party client, first click on the Devices tab, then on the Use 3rd Party Client link at the bottom.


First enter a name for this connection and click Next.


Now, we need the client configuration file.

There are 3 options to get the config - A QR code, the Raw config file text, or click the Download button.

For Windows, click the Download button to save the required .conf file, after which you can click Close.


Download and install the Wireguard client if you haven't done so already and launch the client.

Click Import tunnel(s) from file and load the config file just downloaded.


The configuration is now imported.


2. Connecting the client

Now you can click Activate to connect the client up. The client should have a green tick and 'Active' when connected.


You will also get a windows notification at bottom right.


You should now be able to access addresses in the remote network.
