Install tailscale on IPFire?

When I follow the instructions at for performing a linux install, their script doesn’t recognize IPFire’s linux. While a Pakfire install would be most preferable, I’d be willing to interface with tailscale support to at least try to get IPFire support added to their script – but I’ll need to know a few more specifics on what exactly to tell them.

# curl -fsSL | sh
Couldn't determine what kind of Linux is running.

UNAME=Linux 6.1.45-ipfire #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Tue Aug 15 21:32:54 GMT 2023 x86_64 Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU J1900 @ 1.99GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

PRETTY_NAME="IPFire 2.27 (x86_64) - core180"

FWIW I want to configure tailscale in order to get past MetroNet’s CGNAT.

Wireguard currently is not part of IPFire. Personally doubt that without wireguard support IpFire could be a suitable environment for Tailscale.

However: personal opinion only.


Yeah, looks like that’s indeed the case. Insufficient due diligence on my part before trying to set it up in the first place. I’ll have to either use OpenVPN to do a site-to-site, or just use Anydesk to remote control a box inside that network.
