The initiator device of a P2P connection is the device that initiates a remote.it connection. In this example, we expect that the initiator device will be your Mac or Linux PC.
The target device is the device which accepts the remote.it P2P connection from the initiator. The target device will usually be something like a Raspberry Pi or other embedded device but could be any device, including, for example, a cloud-based virtual machine.
Whether you wish to connect to a device using a P2P connection on your computer, or using a proxy connection through the remote.it portal, you first need to configure remote.it Services on the target device using the interactive installer.
