Setting up Tailscale on Oracle Linux 7
Packages are available for x86 and ARM CPUs, in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.
Install the Yum repository manager:
sudo yum install yum-utils
Add the Tailscale repository and install Tailscale:
sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/oracle/7/tailscale.repo sudo yum install tailscale
systemctlto enable and start the service:
sudo systemctl enable --now tailscaled
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.
If you want to use this device as an exit node or subnet router, you may need to also allow masquerading in
firewalld. This is a temporary workaround until we fix this
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-masquerade
