Begin with the Outline Manager
Set up your server from the Outline Manager desktop application
Download the Manager desktop application to begin setting up your server. We designed Outline to let you manage everything about your server all in one place. Choose from a list of trusted cloud providers, or you can use your own Linux infrastructure. Many cloud providers offer plans for $5USD a month or less.
Once you’ve downloaded the Manager you will be prompted to choose on which cloud provider you want to run your server. Choose from some of the most trusted providers like Digital Ocean, AWS or Google Cloud. Once you’ve chosen your cloud provider, they will guide you through their specific onboarding process, but you’ll be able to manage your server from your Outline Manager.
Outline allows you to choose where you want your server to be located. Route your traffic through Singapore, Germany or the United States, among many others.
Generate access keys
Create access keys to connect your devices and share access with your network
After setting up your server, generate unique access keys directly from the Manager desktop application. The Manager allows you to send invites to connect to your server via your preferred communication platform. Access keys are how you connect your devices to the Outline Manager and protect them using your server. Each access key is unique and can be managed or deleted directly from the server. Data limits allow you to control how much bandwidth each key is allowed to use.
Connecting to your server is as easy as accepting your invitation. Once you’re connected you can easily turn your connection on and off from the app.
