System Requirements

System requirements for the PC2Me Server are

  • The PC2Me Server runs on Windows XP, Vista 32-bit, Vista 64-bit, and Windows 7/8 on a PC, or on an Intel Mac in a Windows partition (such as Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion or Bootcamp).

    Existing PC2Me Customers Note: You may wish to hold off on upgrading your PC to Windows 10. Many features of PC2Me will work on Windows 10, however Desktop Control does not connect and control your desktop on most installations of Windows 10.
  • We recommend a broadband Internet connection, although actual requirements vary depending on your file size and the number of concurrent viewers.
  • PC2Me Server must be able to sustain a continuous TCP connection through outgoing ports, which is allowed by most personal firewalls and routers. It is not necessary to "open incoming ports", although in some cases it may provide faster service.
    See Connecting Online-Direct.
  • Sleep mode. Set your computer so that it does not go to sleep.
  • Screen saver password. PC2Me works with password-protected screensavers, through its "Initialize Security" feature.
  • System requirements for the remote access device are an iPhone or iPad with iOS7 and a remote Wi-Fi connection (or 3/4G or Edge).
  • Remote access through the Safari Interface requires a Safari browser on a PC or smart device and Desktop Control with or without sound needs a purchased PC2Me Native App on an iPhone, or iPad, with recent updates applied, minimum Apple device firmware level updated to the latest level.

If you like PC2Me, you might like our other native application, Cams2Me. Cams2Me is a versatile and robust surveillance application for your iPhone or iPad. Monitor and/or archive all webcam activity in your home or office. You can purchase Cams2Me from the App Store.
