The Globalscape Quality Assurance team tests our products with a variety of operating systems, software, and hardware. It is possible for DMZ Gateway to function with other operating systems, software, and hardware, but is only tested and approved for use with the following:
Accepts incoming connections from EFT Enterprise v6.2 and later, and EFT 6.2 and later. (Versions prior to v6.2 require DMZ Gateway v2. EFT 6.4.x only works with DMZ v3.2x and earlier.)
Accepts incoming connections from Mail Express v3 and later
Officially supported operating systems:
The command-line parameter /NOREQS can be used if installing at a command line. If specified, the installer will skip checking of for the minimum OS prerequisite that occurs during initial installer launch. This setting is mainly used for debugging purposes or when the checks have errors that are preventing a valid install in the field. Only check #1 for minimum OS is available for DMZ Gateway. Refer to "Silent Command-Line Installation" in the EFT help files for more information.
(v184.108.40.206 and prior) Windows Server 2003 R2 32-bit and 64-bit (IPv6 is not supported in this OS)

“Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” must be installed on the operating system. If you are using “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6),” “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” may be disabled instead of uninstalled. (In the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box, clear the check box next to “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)”.) Alternatively, you can have them both enabled at the same time.
The DMZ Gateway installer installs the Java Runtime Environment (JRE); you do not need to update or maintain the JRE. (The installer uses the latest version at the time the installer is built. Refer to the release notes to see which version was installed.)
1GB available RAM
1024x768 resolution or higher display (headless computer supported on non-Windows systems)
Remote administration must be available.
On Solaris and Linux-based systems, the administration interface will operate locally; therefore, if running on a headless operating system, you must:
Export the display to a remote X-Server to access the user interface.
Make available on the DMZ Gateway computer the subset of X11 libraries necessary for exporting the display.
Properly configure a remote X11 server.
Alternatively, the DMZ Gateway may be manually configured without the use of the administration interface.
