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.
