Install Telepresence Pro

Telepresence Pro is a replacement to Telepresence's User Daemon that gives you premium features including:

  • Creating intercepts on your local machine from Ambassador Cloud.

The telepresence-pro binary must be installed in the same directory as telepresence. When you run telepresence login it will automatically be installed and placed in the correct location. If you are in an air-gapped environment or need to install it manually, ensure it is placed in the correct directory.
