Connect to a workspace
You can connect to a remote workspace from Fleet, or from a browser using the workspace URL.
From a browser
In your browser, open the workspace URL.
Give the permission for the browser to open JetBrains Toolbox. Wait until the connection is set up.
If JetBrains Fleet is already running, you can use the Join Session action.
From JetBrains Fleet
Press Command Shift K.
Start typing Join Session and select the corresponding action when it appears in the suggestions.
Specify the workspace ID or URL and press Enter.
Wait until the connection is set up.
Connecting with SSH
You can establish an SSH connection to a remote machine, run the JetBrains Fleet backend on it, and work on your project remotely.
Creating an SSH connection
To create an SSH connection, choose one of the following methods:
Open Tools and select Actions. On the Actions tab, type
SSHand select Connect to SSH.
Click Workspaces and navigate to .
Enter connection details in the following fields:
Host: enter the IP address of the machine where you plan to install and run JetBrains Fleet or where JetBrains Fleet is already running.
Port: specify the port of the machine you wish to connect to.
User: enter the name of your user.

Upon connecting, JetBrains Fleet uploads its backend to the host machine and initiates it there. If the backend is already installed, JetBrains Fleet will start it.
