Teleport for macOS

It would be 10x more useful if I could use the VPN connection on my MacBook. Are there any plans to support macOS (or Windows)?

@henshaw as far as I can say, based on the forum discussions and some shared information from support people, there are no foreseeable plans to have the teleport app migrated to macOS.

I've wondered the same thing. At least for the Mac, this would be easily accomplished by them releasing the app with the Project Catalyst, and enabling Mac OS, in Xcode which allows their iOS app to run on MacOS as a stand alone Mac OS app. Not sure why they have not added this yet. They seem adamant in keep ing the Amplifi products tied to and reliant on mobile OS, unlike the Ubiquiti products.

I think they would be surprised at how many Amplifi routers they would sell if they opened it up to desktop OSes. It's a big demand that's only growing, and once the word got out that owning an Amplifi router at home could give you a free VPN on your own network away from home, it would get a lot of attention. Perhaps they're concerned it might cannibalize their Ubiquiti offerings, but I don't think it will. This is for consumers and prosumers. A lot of money to be made here if they would just do it.

I assume if i tether to my phone which is then using the VPN would that work, I agree that having this available on Mac and Windows would offer alot more value.

Good point - so I can connect with my mobile phone but two things don't work if I activate teleport on my phone
- If I activate it, it connects and I can browser and takes the IP address from my home connection. But: I cannot access ANY local devices (like 192.168.2.xxx:xxxx)
- If I do tethering with my phone I can't access anything form my laptop either
Not sure why?

Hi @tankmann - have you enabled Local Network Access in the AmpliFi app for the client?

According to past statements by @UI-Brett the Teleport app does not support tethering
