  • ZeroTier

    A Smart Ethernet Switch for Earth

  • headscale

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

  • Seems to have quite good NAT support and seem 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 https://github.com/juanfont/headscale but given the clients are not open source it feels a bit scary to rely on. My knowledge of wireguard is not good enough, but I am also wondering if it is really meant for a mesh setup?

  • tinc
