Using WireGuard on Windows as non-admin - proper solution?

Hi Jason

In the University world there is a lot of "academic freedom" and we (the central IT-department) don’t manage all computer at the university.
We also don’t have any central management of phones for example.

So we built this solution so that it would work the same way for all use cases and device types, not just those devices managed by central IT.

But maybe we need to re-think how we do this and download the config dynamically for the user when they install the client or something.

/Best Regards

Hi Patrik,

Why not provision the config for the users when you're provisioning the rest of the machine for their ownership?
