Setting up Tailscale on Arch Linux

Tailscale can run on Arch Linux (64-bit x86 only). See for more info.

  1. Install Tailscale on Arch Linux:

    pacman -S tailscale
  2. Use systemctl to enable and start the service:

    sudo systemctl enable --now tailscaled
  3. Connect your machine to your Tailscale network and authenticate in your browser:

    sudo tailscale up
  4. 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.
