My main router does not natively support Wireguard so i’m thinking about using a spare NUC (with single NIC) for following purposes:
- Wireguard and OpenVPN gateway via a paid provider (AzireVPN etc…), then have my main router do policy-based routing with this NUC as one (or several) of the gateways.
- Wireguard and OpenVPN server so I can connect to my home network when I’m away.
- Possible site to side VPN with another remote network.
Initially i was thinking about using plain Debian/Ubuntu and do all the configs from scratch. But with VyOS being a router based on Debian, would it be easier to just use VyOS instead? Are there extra benefits (e.g. gateway monitoring…) compared to plain Debian?
