API/C2B Security Computer Requirements

 

         
  • Windows 10 and up or Windows Server 2012 R2 and up, preferably a clean install of Windows.
  • NOT the AIM server.
  • Should be a stand alone PC or server, not somebody's existing workstation that is still in use.
  • Should be a wired network connection. Wi-Fi can be used but it is less secure and less reliable.
  • Your ISP must allow port forwarding to your internal network.
  • The C2B computer requires access to the SQL server. It needs to be on the same network or on a DMZ with access to the SQL service. VPN will likely be annoyingly slow.
  • A reliable internet connection.
