Thinking of Buying 2

    Hi. I am thinking of buying two. I am have a FT job that will be going back into the office in a month or so and I have a contract gig. I have corp laptops issued for both. I do not have admin access to either machine.

    I was hoping to configure one for each device so that I could reach the gig laptop when in the office and both when traveling to put out fires when they inevitably crop up.

    Lastly, I do travel internationally, would this setup support remote access from outside the US? What would I have to do in order to make this happen?

    Thanks!

      Hello @TMac , nice to meet you.

      TinyPilot does not yet natively support remote access from outside your local network, but there are a variety of third-party tools that can enable this. Please check the following document in our FAQ: How can I access my TinyPilot device over the Internet?

      Let me know if you have any other questions, I'll be happy to go over them.

          Hi !! Well I just set up my TinyPilot to connect to my corporate laptop. I was able to connect through my phone hotspot and using Tailscale. Assuming the setup is stable, I can work from anywhere I want (Cancun here I come). But yeah I assume you will have no issues working from anywhere you want. The only downside I see so far is that I cannot use MS Teams for calls/meetings. We use webex for most meetings so thats a relief but once the company migrates completly to MS Teams then I will be screwed.
