Tailscale is a mesh VPN alternative that makes it easy to connect your devices, wherever they are. No more fighting configuration or firewall ports. Built on WireGuard®, Tailscale enables an incremental shift to zero-trust networking by implementing “always-on” remote access. This guarantees a consistent, portable, and secure experience independent of physical location.
WireGuard is a registered trademark of Jason A. Donenfeld.
The v1.2 series supports MagicDNS.

Easy and Instant
This was by far the easiest way to get a Wireguard VPN set up across the myriad of devices I have (Macbook, iPhone, a RaspberryPi, 2x linux boxes). Everything just worked out of the box.
Zero futzing around with configuration required and instantly every device could talk to each other regardless of where they were. When I'm at work with my Macbook I can access my RaspberryPi and linux boxes at home as if they're on a local LAN. Same with my iPhone - I can be on a cell network and still access a development server running on my Macbook. Really just fantastic.
All of your devices, everywhere
Tailscale is the best way to keep your devices connected no matter what network they're on.
You can always manually setup Wireguard, but it just won't be the convenience and extra connectability that Tailscale falls back to when a network is configured in an awful way.
I have no major complaints, except for Apple who needs to implement Wireguard in their kernel, so we can get some more efficiency.
Seemless, works as advertised. I wish my work would get rid of the clunky traditional VPN we have.
I used the subnet route feature too, was awesome!
A minor note on the subnet route behavior, I noticed that when I changed the subnet route advertised, I needed to reauthorize the 'subnet' toggle of the relay node on the web admin page. Took me sometime to realize this.
One think I miss with this produce is the auto-DNS and domain-name configuring that happened when my traditional VPN client connected, wish there was similar capability here.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
