tailscale ssh connection not working,

swissgrammie 8 months ago in iPad updated 8 months ago 2

so i want to attach to my server running tailscale, I have tailscale vpn running on the ipad and on the ubuntu server. i can do this from a terminal app. just by giving the ip address and the user. It comes back on the terminal app to tell me that i need to authenticate using an httplink. With textastic i just get the following error message in the terminal window.

ERROR: Failure requesting shell:

I realise this is quite specific so hoping its something you have hit before with vpn or if there is something else i can try?

unfortunately I'm not familiar with Tailscale. Is there an easy way for me to setup such an SSH environment for testing purposes?

Currently Textastic supports password, password interactive and public key authentication. Multi-factor authentication or authentication with an http link as you are describing is not yet supported, but I'm willing to look into it.


Thanks for thenprompt response and sorry for my delay.I tried to see how I could open up Tailscale to you but it requires that you create a Tailscale account and install it on your box  to do it, so I will just use a private key file, which I know will work. If you do want to investigate i am happy to give you access to my ubuntu box via Tailscale to try it out but it’s not a requirement for me.
