8. Install Outline Manager

Download the Manager desktop application to begin setting up your server. They have designed Outline to let you manage everything about your server all in one place.

For Windows

For Mac

For Linux

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.

When you complete this step then you are ready to manage your VPN from your machine. The Outline Manager console looks at this in your machine. Now, You can generate keys and share them with your family, workmates, etc.
