Installation
The remote.it CLI has slightly different behavior if you are running as a root user versus a non-root user. In general, you will want to run as a root user, though there are a couple cases where you don't. These will be made clear.
  • On Windows, you will need to open a "Command Prompt" as an Administrator and replace any example you see as sudo remoteit by remoteit.exe
  • On Mac and Linux, you must run any commands related to creating/managing a Device or Services as a root user (e.g. sudo)
