Setting up Tailscale on Oracle Linux 8

Packages are available for x86 and ARM CPUs, in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.

  1. Add the Tailscale repository and install Tailscale

    sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/oracle/8/tailscale.repo
    sudo dnf install tailscale
    
  2. Use systemctl to enable and start the service

    sudo systemctl enable --now tailscaled
    
  3. Authenticate and connect your machine to your Tailscale network

    sudo tailscale up
    
  4. Visit the admin console and authorize your new endpoint. If you signed in with a @gmail.com address, it is automatically authorized. (You will need to occasionally reauthenticate unless you disable key expiry.)

  5. Obtain your Tailscale IP address

    ip addr show tailscale0
    
  6. Check out Next Steps for steps on verifying that even a single endpoint is working. With multiple endpoints, simple pings are a good way to start.

Congratulations! You’ve added your workstation to your Tailscale network.

Some routing features such as exit nodes may not work on Oracle Linux because Tailscale’s routing is not yet compatible with firewalld, the default firewall manager on Oracle Linux. A temporary workaround is available on GitHub.

To try upcoming Tailscale features, you can also install Tailscale from the unstable track. However, as the name suggests, you should expect more bugs and unfinished features on that track.
