Its good to see Wireguard is now "in-tree" on the latest kernel probably won't help here from a technical perspective as I believe RouterOS runs an old Kernel but from a support perspective Wireguard has some stability in the Linux community. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/03/wiregua...

You can't use if netmask is /64 then you cannot use 2a02:8011:8003:1::, it is a network address for this subnet. Thanks, I came to the same conclusion last night and changed the address to 2a02:8011:8003:1::1 and 2a02:8011:8003:1::2 and now I can communicate between them Thanks for replying :D
