MAC Desktop Edge Installation

NetFoundry Ziti Desktop Edge supports macOS 10.15 or later.

These instructions apply to MAC operating systems only.

The user is presented with the “An endpoint has been shared with you” screen in the message or welcome email for Ziti set up. In this example, we will be using the MAC Desktop Edge so the user should download the Registration Key attachment in the email. This is a .jwt (JSON Web Token) file.  Then click on the Download and Enroll Tunneler to be directed to the endpoints downloads page.  

 

NOTE: The QR code is provided only for NetFoundry Mobile Edge endpoints.

If you haven't received any messages or emails to install MAC Desktop Edge, please coordinate with your administrator or staff responsible for the MAC Desktop Edge installation to send your welcome email or message with the Registration Key and Installation Link.

The .jwt Key is good for one-time use and expires within a given period of time.
