April has been a busy month; the team is hard at work on our upcoming stable 1.8 release. Lots of great community contributions to highlight.
- Adding Nomad jobs to a Tailscale network Mark Pashmfouroush wanted to run a personal IRC bouncer—but didn’t really know what to run it on. In this blog, he walks through running his IRC bouncer as a sidecar task in Nomad—all with Tailscale.
- Tailscale 続報 QNAP で動かす＆ACL でアクセス制御する＆インターネット接続暗号化 (Tailscale follow-up QNAP-powered & ACL access control & Internet connection encryption) Satoshi Shimizu (whom we’ve included in prior newsletters) wrote a follow-up to his explainer on Tailscale for InternetWatch in Japan. He walks through how to run Tailscale on a QNAP NAS, set Access Control Lists (ACLs), and connect to the Internet using via an in-house node with Tailscale 1.6.
- ngrok like tunnels with Tailscale, a VPS, and Traefik Snorre Magnus Davøen details how to set up his own domain and tunnel to a dev server on their laptop using Tailscale and a reverse proxy. It’s a great use case, and an interesting read.
- A Mesh VPN For Everyone Mat X dreams about backups and storage while he sleeps. He wrote an explainer of how to use Tailscale to connect everything. We liked it so much we’re sharing it with you.
