NetPhantom System Requirements

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

NetPhantom Client

The NetPhantom Client requires a Java Runtime version 7, 8 or 11, 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 7, 8 or 11. 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 1 GB in practice for a 32-bit JVM).

NetPhantom Editor

NetPhantom Editor is partly written for a 32 bit Windows platform even if the NetPhantom Server is integrated into it. As such, the Editor requires a Windows operating system that is Windows XP or later. It also requires Oracle Java version 7 or 8. The Editor is supported under Windows XP*, Windows Vista*, Windows Server 2003/2008(R2)/2012(R2)/2016* or Windows 7/8/8.1/10*. Java version 9 or better is not supported due to the lack of 32-bit support. The star (*) above means either the 32-bit or 64-bit operating system version, but requires the 32-bit version of the Virtual Machine.
