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 https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/raspbian/buster.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
    curl -fsSL https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/raspbian/buster.list | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tailscale.list
    
  3. Install Tailscale

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install tailscale
    
  4. Authenticate and connect your machine to your Tailscale network

    sudo tailscale up
    
  5. Obtain your Tailscale IP address

    ip addr show tailscale0
    
  6. Check out Next Steps for steps on verifying that a single endpoint is working. With multiple endpoints, simple pings are a good way to start.

Congratulations! You’ve added your workstation to your Tailscale network.

If you’d like to try bleeding edge Tailscale code, you can also install from the unstable track. However, as the name suggests, you should expect more bugs and unfinished features on that track.
