Teleport is a zero configuration VPN server found in the Teleport & VPN section of your Network application that allows you to instantly connect to the UniFi network from a remote location.
- A Next-Gen UniFi gateway or UniFi OS Console with an integrated Next-Gen gateway.
How does it work?
After enabling Teleport, generate an invitation and share it with your desired recipient. Depending if the recipient has the WiFiman mobile app installed, the invitation will automatically add the VPN or prompts to install the (iOS / Android) app.
Once the recipient has set up the Teleport VPN, they can easily remotely access the UniFi network at any time.
Note: The invitation expires in 24 hours and can only be utilized by a single device at a time.
Can I Revoke Access?
In case the invitation is still pending, it can be revoked by viewing the Teleport Invitation History. If the invitation has already been accepted by the recipient, access can be revoked by viewing the Teleport client in the Client Devices section.
Frequently Asked Questions
