Hi all (again). A quick general question if I may? 🤔 Is there some HowTo/ Tutorial about how to setup a prefect server + agent on a beefy workstation and send/ register tasks from a laptop over the same network? Sorry if this is a noob question... Surely I simply overlook something simple... I am trying to figure out how to best scale my local processing pipelines and thought that maybe I just need to read up a bit first before trying to debug with the community help... Cheers, Christian

^ Kyle’s suggestion is good, you definitely might consider Prefect Cloud so you don’t have to host the orchestration layer yourself but if you want to submit flow’s to your version of prefect server and you are already on the same network, you should be able to as long as the api server config matches however you need to be networked when the client gets instantiated (ref:
