Configuring manually a device for a new VPN Location

If you (or your defguard administrator) have added a new VPN Location and you would like to connect to that location from your already existing device (which you have downloaded configuration for any previous locations), you need to:

  1. Go to your profile (My Profile - which you'll find on the navigation on the left side of the screen)

  2. Click on the gear icon on the device you want to download Location configuration - a menu for that device will apear:

  1. Choose Show configuration

The same configuration screen will popup as you were adding this device, but now you can choose a new location:

  1. Download and configure your Wireguard VPN exactly the same way you did it during the adding device process.

The configuration will be named LocationName-device.conf - just add a new configuration to Wireguard client.

  1. Replacing the PrivateKey

defguard doesn't store any user devices' private keys - you need to provide them

Since defguard doesn't have access to your private keys - but has your public key stored for that device - you need to replace the PrivateKey value in the new configuration location.

Where to find the private key for that device?

Yon can just copy the whole line from any other configurations from any other working locations for that device.
