client/server

I'm not sure that we should named both peers as "client" "server" as the documentation will mainly talk about "peer"

That sounds sane. It was mostly what made sense to me when learning wireguard.

Suggest adding advice about IP forwarding

When I set up wireguard it took me a little time to realize I had to enable IP forwarding in the kernel. Once I knew, all I had to do was:

# sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

So I think that would be good to add to the troubleshooting section or the tips and tricks section. The iptables forwarding rules suggested here won't work with that turned off.

I do not have this parameter set and wireguard works without any issues on my setup Gregosky (talk) 10:14, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Sounds Like an Ad

Being a blurb from the project's authors is no excuse. The following, unsubstantiated claim sounds like an advertisement:

... it might be regarded as the most secure, easiest to use, and simplest VPN solution in the industry.

systemd-networkd-wait-online.service needed?

wq-quick@.service already contains After=network-online.target. Enabling the wait online service causes the whole boot process to pause while waiting for a network connection and can dramatically increase boot times.
