setup tailscale on freebsd

December 17, 2023

This blog post describes how to install and setup the tailscale agent on a FreeBSD machine. Luckily a tailscale port is already packaged and contains the necessary daemon and CLI components.

sudo pkg install tailscale

From here though we need to edit /etc/rc.conf to enable the tailscaled agent daemon. Add the following line to the file.


With this, we can activate the tailscaled agent.

sudo service tailscaled start

And with the tailscaled agent started, it is now possible to authenticate using the tailscale CLI tool.

sudo tailscale login
