Getting started with Tailscale
The goal of this document is to introduce you to a basic Tailscale
deployment that you can modify and extend to build your own, personal
Tailscale network using your
@gmail.com email address.
The free trial is limited to
@gmail.com accounts for simplicity. Using
other domains requires some administrative work to configure our
authentication provider integrations, which is possible for “full”
installations upon request. Please contact us if you'd like to
set up a multi-account Tailscale trial for your company's domain.
Note: NAT traversal support is still under development. While it works in many cases, for now it is best if you employ at least one Tailscale node on a device or cloud instance with a publicly accessible IP address.
