Using Tailscale from Docker Containers

A blog post on using Tailscale from docker containers by Richard North: https://rnorth.org/tailscale-docker/

So I’m using Richards approach here, but building my own version of the Docker container from the v1.1.0 tag and it doesn’t seem to work. It fails with a whole lot of “timeout waiting for pong” messages in the logs as well as lots of:

2020/10/20 23:19:04 7.9M/22.5M Failed to write packet to TUN device: packet dropped by filter
2020/10/20 23:19:04 7.9M/22.5M [RATE LIMITED] Failed to write packet to TUN device: packet dropped by filter

This worked fine on a v0.99.1 Docker image version.

Hi Spudly and welcom to tailscale forum!

Can you post your Tailscale version #, OS, and your docker-compose.yml file?
thanks!

Hi Spudly,

Please don’t build directly from the v1.1.0 tag - that version is
extremely unstable (the entire v1.1 series is the unstable track, and
1.1.0 is the most unstable of all). If you’re building v1.1, it’s
better to use the main branch instead.
