The server PC will be the one that hosts SQL Server and the Doxio database itself.  The client PC is the one every user will use to connect to the Doxio database.

Doxio's hardware and software requirements are pretty spartan and will run quite well with even the minimum requirements.  You will however notice a reasonable improvement with the recommended configuration:

MINIMUM Server and Client Hardware
  • x86 CPU
  • Microsoft Windows XP (SP 2 or later), Vista or Windows 7
  • Microsoft SQL Server Express (for the server PC only)
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 80 GB Hard Drive
  • Ethernet port
  • 1024x768 (XGA) screen resolution
RECOMMENDED Server Configuration for 1 to 5 providers
  • x86 CPU
  • Windows Server 2003 or later (including Small Business Server) for domain network configuration
  • Microsoft SQL Server Express
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 250 GB Hard Drive (7200 rpm or better)
  • gigabit Ethernet port
RECOMMENDED Client Configuration for 1 to 5 providers
  • x86 CPU

  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 160 GB Hard Drive

Additional Requirements for Office Network
  • Encryption Software such as Windows Bitlocker or Truecrypt
  • Network Firewall
  • high-speed scanner with automatic document feeder
  • fax modem for sending and receiving faxes without having to use paper
  • laser printer
  • digital camera (optional for pictures)
  • PDF-generating software (click HERE for a link to PDF software on CNET).  A good free printer driver is CutePDF which works well in converting most formats (HTML, TIFF) into PDF
  • screen capture software such as MWSnap and Snipping Tool from Microsoft (bundled with XP Tablet PC Edition, Windows Vista and 7).  You may also use the PrintScreen function of all versions of Windows and paste the image into an image editor like Paint then save it as a jpg file.
