- https://tailscale.com/kb/1054/dns/ (this look very useful - if you trust them of course)
- https://github.com/tailscale/tailscale (not 100% sure how much is FOSS or reliant on their routing, could be more centralised than OmniEdge)

A secure network that just works
Zero config VPN. Installs on any device in minutes, manages firewall rules for you, and works from anywhere.
Raspberry Pi & ARM
No config files, no firewall ports
Create a secure network between your servers, computers, and cloud instances. Even when separated by firewalls or subnets, Tailscale just works.
Every device on your network gets a stable IP and auto-assigned domain that stays consistent, no matter what Wi-Fi the device is on. It’s like a local network that works everywhere.
Access controls & monitoring
Define role-based access controls to restrict sensitive servers or authorize contractors to only see what they need. And every connection is centrally logged from both ends, viewable from a dashboard and logging API.
Automatic key rotation
Hourly and daily rotations minimizes the risk of stolen keys or stale credentials.
Secured with WireGuard
Tailscale builds on top of WireGuard’s Noise protocol encryption, a peer-reviewed and trusted standard.
Low latency and private. None of your traffic ever touches our servers.
Logging from both ends of the connection ensures your network traffic is tamper-proof.

Any reason it's not posted here, with 7 upvotes?
@robi Sorry, didn't see that, I do like my wishlist posts to have all the links and images though, so excuse the enthusiasm

@marcusquinn I'd say DM me the markdown code to update the post, but it's not editable anymore (post since 2020)
@robi NodeBB has nice cross-referencing links now though, I'm sure people can find and upvote both if desired.

For Tailscale only the clients are open source, while their central unit is closed source.
There is however https://github.com/juanfont/headscale and Tailscale recently allowed a pr to the Android app to make the server backend configurable.
@fbartels Wow, open-source communities are amazing when they do this kinda thing just because.
