    TestFlight is provided by Apple’s servers, it isnt hosted locally.
    To build locally and deploy it to TestFlight you need a Mac to build from. You can also pair your windows Visual Studio to the Mac to do the build.

    Firstly, I suggest using Visual Studio 2019 to develop Xamarin projects.
    Here is the documentation which demonstrates how to upload an application to Testflight:
