Minimum recommended system requirements
The minimum system requirements for a FileCap Server installation are as following:
- 1 network card
- 100GB HDD
- 2GB memory
- 2 CPU cores
Hardware/Virtual machine sizing
The following table displays the advised sizing for the FileCap server. Note that the disk space needed can be pre-calculated by estimating the file size that users will send.
Having 75 users sending a 2GB file within 30 days and with the configured retention time of 30 days (Max days to store files setting) would require a minimum (75x2x(30/30)=) 150GB of disk space + 20GB system space.
The FileCap server has the following network requirements:
- Public IP address
- Public DNS name (A record) pointing to the public IP address (filecap.company.com)
- DMZ IP address
- Internal DNS name “filecap” pointing to the DMZ IP address
- SMTP server for relaying email without authentication
- NTP server
TLS certificate requirements
The FileCap server requires a SSL/TLS certificate that corresponds with the public DNS name. This certificate can be a wildcard, SAN, or single hostname certificate. There are two possible methods to enable SSL/TLS:
Upload own certificate
This certificate can be uploaded to the FileCap admin portal in PKCS#12 (P12/PFX) format which should contain three things; the certificate, the private key (without password) and the intermediate certificates. The PKCS#12 file requires a password, which should not contain special characters and should be longer than 4 characters.
Use Let’s Encrypt
Since FileCap server version 4.0.0 it is also possible to use Let’s Encrypt. To request a certificate for Let’s Encrypt it is mandatory the DNS A record for the corresponding domain (for example filecap.company.com) exists. Also port 80 (HTTP) from the internet to the FileCap server needs to be open. (See also: Required firewall rules)
Please contact Support if you need any help generating or uploading the certificate.
