Subject: [9fans] Accessing auth/fs via Tailscale
Date: Wed, 23 Aug 2023 11:48:55 -0700 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJSxfmLmk4tJ2KRK9L+nSyy3ajQ4rhLtothXi+oQtC_iqy1h+A@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
I've been meaning to mention this in case others might be interested.
Tailscale is great at providing an efficient, secure and (mostly)
decentralized virtual mesh network. Although there isn't a port of
their agent for Plan 9, there is a way to use tailscale to access Plan
9 auth/fs/cpu behind a firewall.
I have a Linux box with IP forwarding enabled that runs a tailscale
agent configured to be a subnet router for my Plan 9 network (see
their docs). On my laptop (macOS with TS agent installed) I boot a
9legacy term under qemu which then accesses the auth and the fs by
their IP addresses.
Of course the Linux box wouldn't be necessary if there was a tailscale
agent for Plan 9 (it's in Go and open source), but none exists
