Installing Tailscale VPN client on Linux

Tailscale is a very slick, free VPN solution that places all your devices inside your home LAN, even when you’re out and about.

Each device is assigned an IPv4 address so you can communicate with all the devices and services in your home network from anywhere.

The client for Android is available in the Play Store.

The commands below get you up and running on your Linux Mint 20.3 and/or Ubuntu 20.4.5.

curl -fsSL | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/tailscale-archive-keyr
ing.gpg >/dev/null
curl -fsSL | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tailsca
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tailscale
sudo tailscale up
tailscale ip -4

Tailscale is free to use for personal use and is available in the Umbrel App Store, if you’re running your own Umbrel Bitcoin and Lightning Validator Node and want to connect your wallet to it from anywhere.

Once installed, log in here to see all your tailscale connected devices.

The Umbrel app store also contains Samourai Dojo Server so you can connect your Bitcoin Samourai wallet to your own Dojo Server and perform transactions privately using Bitcoin’s CoinJoin privacy feature.
