System Requirements for DMZ Gateway v3

The Globalscape Quality Assurance team tests our products with a variety of operating systems, software, and hardware.

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.

  • 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.

“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.
