What's the difference between the Teleport Hardware and the Teleport app?... Is there a difference?... Do you need both for Teleport to work?...

Do you need both for Teleport to work?
Hi @N-M-156 - no, they are independent solutions
What's the difference between the Teleport Hardware and the Teleport app?... Is there a difference?
The Hardware Teleport is a portable Layer 2 protocol device that can be paired to an HD or Instant router (not compatible with Alien) for remote access
It has only a single Ethernet port which you can use to access the WAN through a remote router, or if you connect to the WAN via a wireless network or portal (success can very at some hotels and locations), the Ethernet port can provide LAN access to your home network
Essentially if you can get the HW Teleport on the internet you have a remote MeshPoint from your home network
(note the L2 access is important to some people and applications)
The Teleport App works only on iOS and Android devices and can connect to any AmpliFi router (including Alien) for VPN access
It is optional if you want this VPN to only access the internet from your home location, or to give it access to devices on your home network
However, this is not a L2 solution, so it works via the home router as a proxy
Works great for things like video streaming
Router-to-Router Teleport is very similar to the Teleport app, but you need an AmpliFi router at the remote end to be in a DHCP NAT mode (the home router can be in Bridge mode)
Double NAT does work for R2R Teleport if you already have a primary router at the remote location, but the network will be isolated
R2R Teleport connections also remain persistent until your close them, so they survive reboots at either end, etc.
