Cloudflare is a company that provides internet security and performance services. One of their services is called Cloudflare Access, which is a Zero Trust security solution that enables secure remote access to applications and resources. Cloudflare Access uses a feature called Cloudflare Tunnel to provide secure and encrypted access to web applications.
In this tutorial, we will walk through the steps to install Cloudflare Tunnel on a Fedora 36 machine. We will assume that the tunnels have already been created in the Cloudflare Zero Trust dashboard.
Step 1: Add Cloudflared Repo to DNF Config Manager
The first step is to add the Cloudflared repo to the DNF config manager. To do this, run the following command in the terminal:
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://pkg.cloudflare.com/cloudflared-ascii.repo
This will add the Cloudflared repo to the DNF config manager.
Step 2: Install Cloudflared
The next step is to install Cloudflared. To do this, run the following command in the terminal:
sudo dnf install cloudflared
This will install Cloudflared on your Fedora 36 machine.
Step 3: Install the Systemd Service
The final step is to install the Systemd service. To do this, run the following command in the terminal:
sudo cloudflared service install <token>
<token> with your Cloudflare Access token. You can find your Access token in the Cloudflare Zero Trust dashboard.
This command will install the Cloudflared Systemd service and configure it to use your Access token.
In this tutorial, we have walked through the steps to install Cloudflared on a Fedora 36 machine. With Cloudflared installed, you can now use Cloudflare Tunnel to securely access your web applications.
