Re: RoMON and VRF's [SOLVED]

RoMON works at the ethernet level, using non-IP ether-type. So it has nothing to do with routing tables or VRF.
It only works on "ethernet-like" interfaces, and a VRF "interface" is not ethernet-like since it does not have a MAC address.
Thanks for the response.

It's very difficult to guess with limited info but for basics:
Each router will need a route to the other routers subnet via the wireguard interface.
For testing you can also change the allowed address in the wg peer on each end to 0.0.0.0/0 to debug if its a mismatch in the allowed networks.

Re: Problem with port forwarding for RemoteDesktop

RDP on a publicly accessible port is spooky. I typically set people up with a VPN and then they can RDP to the local IP of the Windows machine. If the remote party has a DDNS updater app on their device you could port forward only allow trusted DDNS hostnames.
