Yeah, the ftp command from way back is different on Linux than on openBSD. It
can still do the plain ol' ftp connections, though. ;)

Interesting behavior. I don't know the reason behind it, though.

It went great! I was able to install wireguard on two amd64 arch platform

I do still see this in the install file:
curl -sLO "$URI_GO"

I'd still recommend adding curl to the pkg_add section for fewer errors during

The process for getting the tunnel working on openBSD is similar to linux, but
the interface is tun and starts with tun0.

Once I'm more confident with the steps, I'll write something up.
