The latest prerelease server builds have an experimental option for built-in Tailscale integration!
Once enabled, you will see a new option under Remote DVR settings to set it up.
You can open your Tailscale portal using the Manage link, and you will see your DVR listed under Machines:
Normally when you setup Tailscale or other VPN, you install the VPN software on the entire machine.
We have taken a different approach: the Tailscale VPN server is embedded directly into the DVR software. You can still have tailscale installed on your computer, but this new option will let the DVR server itself connect to your private network and get its own IP that's just for the DVR.
We hope this is useful for users who are stuck behind CGNAT (i.e. T-Mobile Home, Starlink, etc), and provides a simpler alternative for those don't want to have to mess with their router settings or expose their computers to the internet.
Note: we hope to bring better integration into our client apps as well, but for now you will need to install and enable Tailscale on your mobile device, copy the IP of the DVR, then go into Channels and select Connect > At Home to enter the private tailscale IP.
