Adding external Meshnet devices on Windows

Learn how to allow other NordVPN users' devices to access your device within Meshnet on Windows.
To add an external device to your Meshnet:
  1. 1.
    Go to Meshnet
    and click the Link devices button.
  2. 2.
    In the menu that opens, click the Invite button next to Link external device.
    Clicking the Invite button
  3. 3.
    Enter the email address of the NordVPN user you're inviting to access your Meshnet.
  4. 4.
    Select the permissions you want the user’s device to have.
    selecting permissions
  5. 5.
    Click Send invitation. Your invitation appears under Sent invitations.
The invitation can be canceled while it is still pending.
Once the device owner accepts the invitation, their device will appear among your external devices. The other user will receive your invitation in their NordVPN app. If the user has NordVPN installed on multiple devices, they need to accept the invitation on each device individually.
The invitation remains active even after the other user accepts it so that they have time to accept the same invitation on each of their devices.
If not canceled sooner, invitations expire within 72 hours from the time of sending.
