Footprinter Recommended System Requirements
These are recommended system requirements. Footprinter, as a web application,
is flexible in supporting different PCs, internet connectivity and browsers. With the
rapid improvement in end user experiences with respect to web apps over the past 2-3 years,
using the most modern browser does provide a better user experience particularly when doing
more data intensive Footprinter processes like large tables, large charts and large imports.
Footprinter can be used in many different ways and actual end-user experiences will
vary depending on the actual operation being performed.
|Footprinter runs on Windows machines and Macs as it is a browser application
|Machines with at least 1.5 GHz processors and 1 GB of memory (RAM) can perform better.
|Users that use Excel frequently will be find satisfactory Footprinter performance.
|A standard 15” display with 1024x768 pixel resolution and full color (16 bit) works fine
for rendering most Footprinter page types.
|Heavy use of table pages (with large tables and accompanying inline charts) benefits from larger displays.
A 17” widescreen display with full HD (1980x1020 pixel resolution) works best (as would also be the case with MSFT Excel).
|Support for operating systems is determined by which browser the user is using.
|For single users (and remote connectivity), basic DSL performance is adequate.
|For multiple, concurrent users, 50kbps of bandwidth can serve as a rough per concurrent user guideline (see note).
|Bandwidth requirements depend on actual Footprinter operations. Footprinter is a very efficient data transport application, doing very few full page
(expensive) loads, so individual user bandwidth requirements will be sparse (over time).
|Ports: HTTP (80) and HTTPS (443).
|Mail server accepts mail from @mail.footprinter.com
|Proxy allows file downloads.
|Footprinter supports the last two major releases of all modern browsers (IE, FF and Chrome).
|Footprinter will warn the user about the browser if the versions are “out of date”.
Footprinter as a web app performs best on the most modern browsers that are designed for web apps.
- Internet Explorer 9 (or higher)
- Firefox 13 (or higher)
- Chrome 20 (or higher)
|Windows XP is limited to IE8 and it is recommended that users install Chrome Frame or use a different browser.
|The only browser plugin required is Adobe Flash (version greater than 9).
|Footprinter requires that scripts and cookies are enabled on the browser.
