remoteit Device Package

The Device Package is suitable for most embedded devices and headless installations on Linux. 

Most users (including Raspberry Pi and OpenWrt users) will find the following instructions the easiest way to perform installation and 1-by-1 configuration.  This method requires the use of the remote.it Desktop Application.

Installing the remoteit Device Package

Configuring remoteit Services when using the Device Package

If you need more detailed information, you can find the Device Package downloads and instructions at: https://docs.remote.it/device-package/installation

remoteit CLI

The remoteit CLI supports Windows and macOS as well as Linux.  Find the CLI downloads and instructions at: https://docs.remote.it/cli/overview.  For configuring individual Devices and their Services, all commands are executed directly on the device's command line.  It is not necessary to use the remote.it Desktop Application.

Windows, Mac, Desktop Linux

The Desktop installer for Windows, macOS and Linux also supports configuration as a connection endpoint.  Use the Desktop instead of the CLI if you also wish to have the Desktop features available.
