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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
Download the static binaries for your CPU architecture:
Unpack the archive:
tar xvf tailscale_VERSION_ARCH.tgz
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.
Connect your machine to your Tailscale network and authenticate in your browser:
sudo tailscale up
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.
