Server Requirements

Operating System:

  • Windows Server 2012 R2

  • Windows Server 2008 R2*

  • Windows 10

  • Windows 8.1

  • Windows 7 Professional*


Configuration Requirements:

  • SMTP, HTTP and FTP protocol support and relevant settings 

  • Administrator login access with UAC disabled

Hardware Requirements:

  • Dual Core Pentium Processor or greater (multi core processor improves performance)

  • 20% or more free disk space (Estimate 100MB disk space required per 100,000 calls stored)

  • Virtual machine technology is perfectly acceptable provided the environmental requirements are met.

Options & Considerations

  • CommView Multi User bundle includes WebReporter - Requires .NET Framework 4.0 and IIS 7

  • When choosing a virtual environment, IP-based polling must be implemented and it is recommended to assign a second processor at a minimum.

  • For configurations of >5,000 stations, a 2-CPU configuration is recommended to improve performance.

  • The most significant improvements in system performance can be gained by increasing the amount of RAM in the workstation/server running CommView.

  • COM Port(s) (Required if serial polling options is being used and/or serial PMS posting for hospitality)

  • For report users and administrators accessing via our Browser interface - Any Windows PC running a current browser from Microsoft, Mozilla or Google.  @Comm aims to maintain compatibility with the latest browser versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome

 * Not for new deployments. Installing/operating on OS past EOL is at your own risk due to absence of security patches

  9. @Comm provides customer training on arranged date/time via remote access. Training takes approximately 2 hours based on number of sites and customer configuration requirements.

Site Info and Extension List

As an option, customers or partners can begin the data gathering process by downloading and completing a general template in Microsoft Excel.

For applications that have multiple data sources, or have a single data source that is parsed into different files based on geography or function, each site should be identified and have a site license.

Report sorting and filtering as well as user restrictions to subsets of call data is configured by using the organizational structure associated to an extension end point. This template provides suggestions on possible uses of the available levels. Contact @Comm Support for assistance with any questions.
