So i have following scenario.
Have set up my dietpi. It runs perfectly.
I would want to also remotely (from other wifis annd mobile LTE) access my dietpi.
For example to SSH into dietpi and install software/update etc.
Or access my jellyfin server and stream my home media library.
Using Wireguard works perfectly.
But I thought I could use Tailscale to get the same result without the ddns setup and the router config. (And Tailscale works good on fire tv/android tv devices)
So installation of Tailscale on dietpi works and installed it also on my iPhone +fire tv.
I see all machines in Tailscale admin console and that the vpn connection builds up.
But I cannot ssh into my dietpi.
I thought Tailscale is a zero config VPN.
What am I doing wrong?
which IP you used to connect to DietPi? The local network IP or the one Tailscale generated?
Ahhh… I used the dietpi IP as I would use when I used the Wireguard vpn
When I use the Tailscale ip of the dietpi than it’s working…
But then I do not understand the VPN part of Tailscale.
I thought I would get the IP address of my home network.
That’s why with Wireguard I can access all my services as I would be at home.
But for example if I want to access sonarr, I need to use now two IPs . One when I’m home and another when using Tailscale.
That sounds for me for more work not less work.
Also I want to use a service which is bind to my home IP address remotely (o get banned if I use the services from another IP address.
It seems than this would not be possible because I still see not my home ip address when checking on whatismyipaddress.org
Even though I have turned on Tailscale
Or another use case: how do I hide my traffic in a hotel wifi with Tailscale?
I guess there is a misunderstanding what Tailscale is and how it is working. It is not something you can compare with Wireguard 1:1 as it has a different concept. Better you check Tailscale docs to get more inside. To allow sub net routing, some additional steps are needed Subnet routers and traffic relay nodes · Tailscale
Thanks. I will read the docs
