First-time Configuration

Congratulations! Now that you have successfully activated your Twingate account, it's time to configure your Twingate network to protect and access your private Resources.

Before you start

This guide will walk you through the required steps. The only prerequisite is that you have sufficient permissions to deploy either a Docker container or native Linux service on the Remote network you're configuring. Twingate Connectors are deployed behind your firewall, and only require internet egress permissions.

To get started, proceed to the first step: Define a new Remote network. A summary of all steps is shown below.


1. Define a new Remote network
You will create a new Remote network in Twingate within which you will define Resources that users can be given access to.

2. Create a new Resource
Resources are what users are authorized to access. They are defined in the context of a Remote network. Resources must be added to a Group in order to be accessible.

3. Create and provision a new Connector
Twingate Connectors provide encrypted connectivity into a Remote network. Deploying a Connector allows you to define Resources and authorize users to access them.

4. Connect to Twingate with the client application
With your Twingate network configured, the Twingate client application allows you to connect to Resources you are authorized to access.
