Binfer E6 System Requirements

The following are the minimum system requirements and firewall configuration settings needed to install and use the Binfer 6 Server, Client, and Endpoint agents.


  • Operating System: Windows Server, Windows 7, Windows 10 (64 Bit)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Disk Space: 200 MB


  • Port: The Binfer 6 Service needs a port on the system to be reserved for file transfers. A few important notes to remember are:

  • Network Requirements Confirmation: To confirm the ports have been opened and the firewall has been configured correctly, follow the below connection verification instructions after the installation of the Binfer 6 server:
    • In the Binfer 6 management console, go to “SETTINGS>NETWORK” and copy the “Test URL”
    • Paste the test URL into the internet browser of an outside device.
    • You are good to proceed if you see text in the browser that says “Binfer is On” along with a time stamp. If you do not see this, your port is not open on the firewall.
