  • ztncui

    ZeroTier network controller UI

    You can self host a controller of adding/removing devices and all ( https://github.com/key-networks/ztncui ), but it has an upstream connection to their managed services, it’s how the apps and all keep working.

  • Nebula

    A scalable overlay networking tool with a focus on performance, simplicity and security

    That’s exactly the issue I ran into, I then looked into Slacks Nebula (https://github.com/slackhq/nebula) and it worked perfectly! Until I tried using DNS, I have several internal only apps, non internet routable and trying to force nebula to either use my provided DNS entries just didn’t work out, but there is some GitHub issues open related to it, but yea.

  • headscale

    An open source, self-hosted implementation of the Tailscale control server

    Headscale is an open source self host able implementation of the tailscale bridge. Personally I would recommend checking out Netmaker as an alternative.
