System Requirements

Check the requirements for each component, which vary slightly.

Administrative Server Requirements

The Administrative Server is the central component of Management and Security Server and is platform-independent. For production, the Administrative Server should be installed on a server-class operating system. To run the Administrative Server, you need:

  • A servlet engine or application server compliant with Java Servlet 2.3 specification and JSP 1.2 such as Apache Tomcat.

  • A server running JRE 7 or later. The required JRE is installed automatically when you use an automated installer or a multi-component archive file to install Management and Security Server.

    (See JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files.)

Administrative WebStation Requirements

  • Any web browser using a JRE 7 or later that can run trusted applets and supports JavaScript and cookies.

Although the Administrative WebStation is installed on a web server computer, it can run in a browser on any machine.

Metering Server Requirements

  • Servlet engine or application server compliant with Java Servlet 2.3 specification and JSP 1.2 such as Tomcat.

  • A server running JRE 7 or later. The required JRE is installed automatically when you use an automated installer or a multi-component archive file to install Management and Security Server.

Security Proxy Server Requirements

  • A server running JRE 7 or later. The required JRE is installed automatically when you use an automated installer or a multi-component archive file to install Management and Security Server.

Terminal ID Manager Requirements

  • Servlet engine or application server compliant with Java Servlet 2.3 specification and JSP 1.2 such as Tomcat.

Terminal Emulation Session Requirements

  • Users or administrators who launch Windows-based or Web-based sessions from the Java-based login/links list applet must have a web browser using JRE 7 or later that can run trusted applets. See Technical Note 1383 for a summary of supported browsers.
