Ok. I just spent 30 minutes getting @tailscale up and maybe 20 of that was talking to @dave_universetf on their IRC test website. It is awesome. 10 min to get my phone, home desktop, desktop at work, a couple local servers and a cloud box all connected to the same network.
I recently added 4 more nodes to my WireGuard network. 6 logical networks transformed into one. It is magic. It was actually the same feeling I felt when using @Dropbox back in the day. Easy to consider that @Tailscale could be the dropbox of private networking.
Setting up a mesh VPN on all my devices was so damn easy thanks to @Tailscale. A tightly sealed network of remote devices with almost no configuration and also ease of adding a new device to the mesh is just what I wanted. Amazing work @Tailscale!
Achievement unlocked: Used @Tailscale to install #postgresql on my home tower and only listen to the tailscale internal tunnel IP, and only allow inbound connections from 2 of my tunnel IPs. Now my laptop can use my tower as a database server from anywhere. My new fav dev tool
Set up @Tailscale across a few home and cloud devices in a few minutes. Magical! ✨
I temporarily switched my server to serve only over the Tailscale VPN address, and could thus keep accessing all my stuff until the attackers moved along.
OK yeah @Tailscale is good. This morning I got it running on my iPhone and a Linux server JUST using my phone (and Prompt by Panic) and they're now in a mesh network together.
Just got it running on my Mac too, so now it's a three-device network. Completely free, took minutes.
I just used my private @tailscale tunnels to SSH into my other machines and switch the daemon from tailscale-relay (old) to tailscale (new). I was able to upgrade tailscale remotely without ever losing a link.
THIS is what good software should feel like.
So I decided to reserve this morning to read up on @tailscale and get it set up on my various machines at home.
That took a hot 30 minutes and I have to find something else to do. 🤷
@Tailscale is incredibly cool. Stunning in simplicity and usability. (I acknowledge this is an esoteric tweet. I predict it will be less esoteric in a year or two.)
@Tailscale busts double nat (travel router -> plane wifi) and connects me to my home server so I can silence a prometheus humidity alert (can’t really add water to the humidifier from here).
Need a good VPN solution like everyone else right now? @Tailscale is now GA - congrats! No snake oil crypto here - peer reviewed & open source. No IPSec complexity. User-space daemon in a memory safe language with broad OS support 💥
I have been using Tailscale for about 3 weeks know (since I went into self isolation) and very happy. Linux servers and OS X clients so far. It just works.
After installing @Tailscale on a bunch of machines on my home network (Linux x86 + aarch64, MacOS, Windows) I've just ventured out. Had to restart the process but holy moly, just SSH'ed into my boxes, building code and pushing configs around like I'm home. Amazing. Converted
If you deal with servers in any way drop everything and get this. VPN nirvana. @Tailscale
The beauty of @Tailscale is that they enable people to make their own personal internet, for free in most cases. It's this weird paradigm shift, since you have to actively work to make applications insecure rather than the other way around.
@Tailscale utilisent wireguard. C'est léger, très performant, fonctionne en UDP, passe les nat et c'est très très facile à mettre en place.
So @tailscale is a legit product, even at this early stage. I almost feel sorry for all the VPN software/device vendors out there that saddle their users with miserable usability.
Just paid for @tailscale. Installed it on our robots; so far so good. Compared to OpenVPN:
* Always on
* Same config in office & field
* Scales to large # devices
* GUI-based ACL w/SSO
* Fixed IPs, DNS-friendly
* Dead simple config+use
Kudos team @tailscale!
