an example:
my laptop e.g. has

Address =
PrivateKey = xxx

PublicKey = xxx
AllowedIPs =,
Endpoint =  myhomeIP:51820
PersistentKeepalive = 25 is the wireguard-IP of my wireguard-server at home.

This way I can reach for example my printer at even if I am 
on the move, because my wireguard server is installed on my router at 
home (Unifi USG-3P).
The printer sends it packets for simply to its default 
gateway, which is my router/wg-server, that forwards it over wireguard.

When I'm in my network at home, my laptop gets the IP 
and automatically talks to the other devices in the LAN without taking 
the wireguard route, because the subnet is more specific.
