Having a hard time with installing Tailscale on EPIC

Hello, I am trying to follow this guide from Corso Systems

And I keep getting this error after I do the wget https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/tailscale_1.62.0_arm.tgz

Connecting to pkgs.tailscalecom (
wget: error getting response: Connection reset by peer

I was able to do the wget command on a Pi on the same network, but I was wanting to put tailscale on an epic as a way to get access thru my tailnet

I followed Corso’s guide on installing wireguard on an Epic and that worked wonderfully,

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I’ll need to do some testing on an actual Epic, but I got a wget error on a couple other computers just now. It seems like it might be a bug or issue in wget itself regarding how it handles TLS vs the server’s TLS version (and cURL possibly has the same issue).

Updating wget might fix it. (It worked on a newer Linux server and failed on my Windows box, which has a stale, old version)

I followed this on a Rio and also updated to latest release. When running tailscale up command I get command not found. Any other users experience this?

Hi Jason, welcome to the Opto22 forums.

Since this thread is getting some attention, I thought I would check out the Corso post and follow it.
I also got the ‘not found’ on the first follow, but with a slight tweak it seems to work…

In the second PuTTY session you open (so you can leave that first one open and running), don’t forget to cd into the cd tailscale_1.10.1_arm/ directory.
Then you need to drop the double sudo in the post and ./ the command so it runs… Like this:

$ sudo ./tailscale up --advertise-routes=
Warning: net.ipv4.ip_forward is disabled. Subnet routes won't work.

Note, I don’t have a tailscale account and just made up the 10.10 stuff.

Hope that helps get you running.
Be sure and let us know how it goes for you. (I use wireguard, but am interested in tailscale).

EDIT: I pinged the nice folks at Corso and they have updated the commands in that original blog.
@jason4 check out the blog now and see if it works for you.

@RJfromNJ Sorry for the slow reply… I took a look at this on the EPIC and found the same error.
I suspect as @null-directory pointed out, there is something about the version of wget on the EPIC.

Easy work around:

curl -O https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/tailscale_1.10.1_arm.tgz

Just use curl on the EPIC, with the -O flag it writes Out the file to the current directory.

Would this be the same thing on the Rio?

I dont know the context of your question, so will take a guess…

On EPIC, use curl
On RIO, you can use either wget or curl

OK on Rio I still received the error. I will try again! As long as your made it work on a Rio, we should be able to do the same.
