I have a few machines on my network and I can access them via ssh and sftp without issue. Among them are my Raspberry Pi, a Win10 machine and my phone.
Today I installed Tailscale on my Linux Mint machine and did the setup according to the docs.
tailscale ip -r
produces the same ip as the one shown in the admin console for this machine. And the machine is shown as active in the admin console as well.
seem to be listing all my machines with the correct IP’s aswell.
I can’t however connect to the machine in any way it seems. Tried ssh connecting and also adding it to SolidExplorer. But I get connection timed-out errors. Tried restarting the target machine and rechecking that tailscale was running, but still wont work.
Now the only difference I can find that might mess up connecting to this machine is the fact that Fortinet is installed on the target machine. And I seem to be forced to keep it installed as it’s the only way to connect to my school’s network for some reason which I need to do continuously for the next few days. So I cant unfortunately remove it to test if it’s the issue.
How do I first of all figure out if Fortinet is the problem?
And if so, how do I get around it? According to my school’s docs, Fortinet is the only way we can establish connection to their servers, so I do really need to keep it.
