I noticed there were other Tailscale-related threads but I didn’t see anyone wanting to run their clients via a remote exit node.
I haven’t yet received my GL INET router (arriving next Tuesday) but I was under the impression, with it being packaged and all, that using Tailscale (without the exit node option I’m enquiring about) would be straightforward. Clearly after reading you post, it is not.
If I do get into trouble I’ll probably take a similar approach to yours, by creating a wireguard server and running it through there, but like you mentioned, I’d REALLY love if I didn’t had to mess around with port forwarding and the typical stuff that goes into maintaining a VPN architecture. That’s the beauty of Tailscale and why I thought it would be such a great addition to the travel router.
