Ian Barton on Tailscale
If you have ever battled with the behemoth that is OpenVPN because you want to access your media server from outside your network you might want to try Tailscale. Tailscale is "A secure network that just works with Zero config VPN. Installs on any device in minutes, manages firewall rules for you, and works from anywhere " Tailscale is built around the Wireguard VPN, which runs on almost any platform and is now built into the Linux kernel. You can use the basic product to connect up to 20 devices for nothing.
I have it installed on my UNraid server which is running Tailscale inside a Docker container. Setting this up took all of 10 minutes. Next, I installed Tailscale on my Android phone and could use it to view my Emby media server via 4g. As it's a VPN all traffic between your computers is encrypted. There is an experimental MagicDNS that automatically registers DNS names for computers on your network, so you can use URLs that are easy to remember such as "mymediaserver" instead of having to remember its IP address. An additional plus point is that it somehow works on networks using CGNAT (mobile phones and Starlink) so you can access your phone from your computer via a web browser.
