Private Hosting Requirements

In order to access Briefcase privately, you will need to ensure your users will be able to access the server provisioned for Briefcase.

Access to the Briefcase server for users will require Port 5003 to be open on the router. Where security is more of a concern, your I.T team should be able to provision access to this port for specific users only. Briefcase also uses web services that require access to port 80, these are usually opened by default.

We also require that remote access is setup for two reasons:

  1. Allowing your staff to connect to Briefcase when away from the office
  2. Allowing us, where required, to issue updates and provide technical support

This access can be granted by allowing port access to users outside of your network over Port 5003, In addition to this if administration of the server is required Port 16000 will also need to be opened. Alternatively, your I.T team can also facilitate access to the network over VPN.

You will also need to ensure that workstations meet the minimum system requirements.

If you are unsure whether you will be able to meet these requirements, please contact your I.T team and provide them with the information listed above. Our staff would be more than happy to facilitate a discussion with your I.T team directly if required.
