Setting up Tailscale on Raspberry Pi

Tailscale can run on Raspberry Pi boards running Raspbian. Packages are available in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.

  1. Install the apt-transport-https plugin:

    sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
  2. Add Tailscale's package signing key and repository:

    curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -
    curl -fsSL | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tailscale.list
  3. Install Tailscale:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install tailscale
  4. Connect your machine to your Tailscale network and authenticate in your browser:

    sudo tailscale up
  5. You're connected! You can find your Tailscale IPv4 address by running:

    tailscale ip -4

If the device you added is a server or remotely-accessed device, you may want to consider disabling key expiry to prevent the need to periodically re-authenticate.
