Description

When creating a new WireGuard peer, we should suggest/pre-fill the AllowedIPs field with the next IP address in the WireGuard interface subnet. This will make the management of peer addresses semi-automatic.

For example:

On Peer A:
  • Create WireGuard interface with address 10.0.11.1/24
  • Add a peer, suggest the next available address, 10.0.11.2/32
  • Add a peer, suggest the next available address, 10.0.11.3/32
On Peer B:
  • Create WireGuard interface with address 10.0.11.2/24
  • When adding a peer, suggest the next available address, which happens to be 10.0.11.1/32
On Peer C:
  • Create WireGuard interface with address 10.0.11.3/24
  • When adding a peer, suggest the next available address, which happens to be 10.0.11.1/32
