Is it possible to run ZeroTier without root access?

When I run it right now, I get the error zerotier-cli: authtoken.secret not found or readable in /var/lib/zerotier-one (try again as root). I tried using chmod 660 on the file but I still don’t have read perms on it because I don’t have access to /var (which I don’t really want to give myself). Is there any way to do it? tia

No.

If your user account cannot traverse the /var directory, then it cannot read the /var/lib/zerotier-one/authtoken.secret file.

One possible way to solve that is to move the zerotier-one folder to a user directory, and then create a symlink.
