    Does NetworkManager WireGuard support work for anyone yet? On Fedora 30, I can import a configuration file just fine, but I don't get any connectivity after connecting the VPN. IP address and route configuration look fine, though. Meanwhile, using the "wg-quick" tool works fine with the same configuration file.

      I've managed to get it working on fedora 30 with this guide

      As usual the NetworkManager gui fails, I can only start it with nmcli

        If you have 5.2 kernel or newer, then possibly you hit a bug that's fixed upstream. You would see that NetworkManager is entirely unable to configure the WireGuard link, and that would be visible in the logfile.

        "Having no connectivity" however sounds more like the routes are not properly set up. As you would see by looking at `ip route` output. That would commonly happen when you set allowed-ips to 0.0.0.0/0 or ::/0. NetworkManager 1.20.0 improved here, but that is only in Fedora rawhide. See here for more infos .

          This will be fixed by NetworkManager-1.16.4-1.fc30.
