What is hello.ts.net?

hello.ts.net is a server administered by Tailscale staff to help new users test their network.

hello.ts.net can only be accessed over Tailscale. If hello.ts.net loads in your browser, you’re connected over Tailscale!

hello.ts.net is a private, “one-way” server. It is not accessible via the public internet, and ACLs restrict it from making any outgoing connections. Tailscale does not initiate connections from hello.ts.net to your tailnet. It serves no purpose other than to allow you to verify you’re connected to Tailscale.

Previously, hello.ipn.dev was used rather than hello.ts.net. These serve the same purpose.
