Installing remoteit on Ubuntu PCs running Intel or AMD CPUs


Please note that this section describes a software package which has been superseded. We do not recommend the use of remoteit 3.x for new designs.  For instructions on downloading and installing the most recent device package, please follow this link.

64-bit only

We only provide the amd64 version of the remoteit package for Debian, as Node v12 is not available for 32-bit platforms.  For support of features on 32 bit Debian-based platforms, use the connectd package.




If you need to update your remoteit package using a remoteit connection, for example using SSH or VNC, please see: Updating the remoteit or connectd packages using a SSH connection. Failure to follow this procedure will result in loss of connection and inability to restore it without rebooting or accessing the device directly.
