Setting up Tailscale on CentOS Stream 9
Packages are available for x86 and ARM CPUs, in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.
Add the Tailscale repository and install Tailscale:
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/centos/9/tailscale.repo sudo dnf 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.
Some routing features such as exit nodes may not work on CentOS because Tailscale’s routing is not yet compatible with firewalld.
