Setting up Tailscale on openSUSE Leap 15.1

Packages are available for x86 and ARM CPUs, in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.

  1. Add Tailscale's package signing key and repository:

    sudo rpm --import
    sudo zypper ar -g -r
  2. Install Tailscale:

    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper in tailscale
  3. Use systemctl to enable and start the service:

    sudo systemctl enable --now tailscaled
  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.
