NetPhantom System Requirements

The system requirements of the three parts of NetPhantom are shown below.

NetPhantom Client

The NetPhantom Client requires a Java Runtime versions 8 to 21 and an operating system supporting that platform. There are no special requirements as to the vendor of the Java Virtual Machine. If the client is installed on a workstation, it requires about 500 KB of disk.

The NetPhantom Client can run as a stand-alone Java Application and as an Applet inside or outside a browser. Tested browsers with their minimum versions are Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, Mozilla Firefox 2, Google Chrome 3, Opera 9 and Apple Safari 4. For "newer"" browsers, only Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 is supported.

When using Java 11 and later, the preferred way of running the NetPhantom Client is as a Java application or by using the NetPhantom Starter. The Editor and the Server Administration provides easy ways to publish such applications.

NetPhantom Server

The Server requires Java version 8 to 21. The operating system is typically Windows Server or UNIX-based of Linux type. In order to run many concurrent client connections and handle a lot of threads, a 64-bit operating system with a 64-bit JVM is recommended. This also enables the NetPhantom Server to address more memory (the maximum Java heap memory limit being up to ~900 MB in practice for a 32-bit JVM).

NetPhantom Editor

NetPhantom Editor requires a 64-bit Windows platform, although parts still require 32-bit Java version 8 to 19 (32-bit support for Windows was dropped in Java 20/21 and on), even if the NetPhantom Server is integrated into it.

The Editor therefore requires a 64-bit Windows operating system. It also requires Java in both 32- and 64-bit versions of Java. The Editor is supported under Windows 7/8/8.1/10/11, or Windows Server 2008 R2/2012 R2/2016/2019/2022.
