    So are you a password or SSH key log in person? Or both?


    I usually use either or both depending on the server :D

    Ssh key initially.

    Then using tailscale post install.

    Tailscale so I can close off port, or skip the bastion/knocking dance. Phone becomes emergency terminal etc.
