Setting up Tailscale with static binaries (unsupported)

If you would like to try Tailscale on a Linux distribution we don’t yet support, we offer statically-compiled binaries on a best-effort basis.

If you use these binaries, let us know at info@tailscale.com, so that we can consider adding official support for your distribution.

We offer static binaries for x86 and ARM CPUs, in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.

  1. Download the static binaries for your CPU architecture:

  2. Unpack the archive:

    tar xvf tailscale_VERSION_ARCH.tgz
    
  3. Start tailscaled:

    sudo tailscaled --state=tailscaled.state
    

    If you want to configure systemd to run tailscaled automatically, a service configuration is available in the systemd/ subdirectory of the unpacked archive.

  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.
