  • Enhancing AWS VPC Security: Accessing Your Network with a Private Jumpbox using Tailscale
    In today's cloud-centric world, ensuring the security of your AWS resources is paramount. I was recently working on a cloud project and wanted a secure way to access the VPC remotely without using EC2 Instance Connect. This is when I came up with the idea to try using Tailscale VPN. I had already been tinkering with Tailscale on my home network and noticed how powerful it was. In this post, I will share how you... - Source: / 19 days ago

  • Duck DNS
    Fond memories of using DDNS on old Netgear routers at home in the aughts and port forwarding services with some rudimentary firewall rules and tcpwrappers to try and lock down access. Now I use a combination of Tailscale[1] for private services only to me and Tailscale Funnels[2], and Cloudflare Tunnels[3] for public service exposure. This accomplishes the same thing I was doing with DDNS and my ISP IP, but in a... - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • Which overlay network?
    Tailscale: Seems to have quite good NAT support and seems to do DNS resolution. Clients for most relevant platform - a well rounded package. But I find their plans to be prohibitive. Only 20 devices on the free plan. The first paid tier is 5 devices per 1 user, so 5 devices for me paying? A head scratcher. There is an open source control plane but given the clients are not...

  • How to edit my world when not at home
    The next best option, in my opinion, would be to use a mesh VPN technology like Tailscale ( This technology will allow any devices that have the same software installed and configured upon them to talk to each other directly on a secure private network that runs over top of the Internet. It's user friendly, secure, and relatively easy to configure compared to some other options. If you... Source: 11 months ago

  • New to Keep large amount of Data and Need Advice!
    For a few TB of data you have many options. I use a Beelink Mini S12 with a 4TB SSD and a 2TB NVMe in it. It is powerful enough to run several services and stream photos and video to my phone, desktop, and TV (using an Amazon Fire Stick on the TV). I use Photoprism and Jellyfin for that. I access it remotely using Tailscale. It helps if you own a domain so you can setup SSL certs. I have and Source: 12 months ago

  • Completely redesigned Screen Sharing app in macOS Sonoma!
    I ended up installing a program called Tailscale, which essentially just creates a private, personal LAN in the cloud, completely free for personal use. So e.g. Once I've got it installed, by using MagicDNS I can just use "Connect to Server" from the Finder and type in the hostname for the target device, e.g. My Mac Pro has hostname towerofbssd. That works remotely and as far as I can tell quite seamlessly. Source: about 1 year ago
