Access Synology, QNAP, or NAS from anywhere

Tailscale makes it easy for users to securely connect to their Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices over WireGuard®.

While we don’t have official packages yet, community-led efforts have resulted in installation steps for various *nix-based systems: QNAP, Synology, Unraid, and FreeNAS.

In general, install Tailscale on the NAS and follow the steps to authorize it.

Tailscale is free for most personal use, including accessing your NAS.

If you run into problems then please don’t hesitate to email us at [email protected]. Please feel free to comment on the related GitHub issues as well!


Tailscale support for Synology is tracked on this GitHub issue.

Special thanks to nirev for their Synology-Tailscale package builder.


In the same thread as Synology support, special thanks to ivokub for their Tailscale QPKG package builder.


Special thanks to deasmi for their Tailscale Unraid Docker build files.


FreeNAS is based on FreeBSD. Tailscale does not officially support FreeBSD, but users have successfully built Tailscale from source.
