Dear all

A conf file called


generates, via the wq-quick command, an interface named thusly (note the
missing the initial 'w'):

     ireguard-se1gb1.conf [sic]

Nonetheless, the interface - which works - can be pulled down with

     wg-quick down wireguard-se1gb1.conf

(note the 'w' at the start of 'wireguard'). Renaming the conf file to


generates an interface that is named as expected.
