Signiant Server System Requirements

This guide outlines the system requirements and firewall configuration needed to install and use Signiant Server in your organization.

Signiant Server

Signiant Server software provides an endpoint for Jet transfers and Media Shuttle on-premises storage, such as a local disk, NAS, or SAN.

Operating System

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux/CentOS 7.0+ (64-bit)
  • Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2019

Note: Supported operating systems should not be accessed using Parallels.

Hardware

  • CPU: Intel Xeon dual-core processor 2 GHz or better
  • Memory: 8 GB, 16 GB recommended
  • Disk Space: 4 GB free space, 40 GB free space recommended
  • Network Connection: 100 Mbps or faster

Your server must be synchronized to within 60 seconds of the accurate time. Information on configuring systems using global Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers can be found at ntppool.org.

Network Setup

The following ports are required by Signiant Server to perform transfers:

ProtocolPort RangeConnections
MQTT/HTTPS443Outbound connections to transfer infrastructure
HTTPS8443Local Media Shuttle Storage Server connections
TCP/UDP49221Bidirectional connections to Media Shuttle Storage
TCP/UDP50221Bidirectional connections to Jet Server
TCP61001-61003Local connections for transfer infrastructure

Note: On Windows, in addition to network setup on the firewall, the Windows firewall must be configured.

Signiant Servers use ports 49221, 50221, and 61001-61003 for monitoring, control and data transfer functions. No other software can use these ports on your storage server when using Signiant Jet.

External Domains

The Signiant Server software makes HTTPS connections to the following domains:

  • updates.signiant.com
  • *.cloud.signiant.com
  • a2xy0445m8zinb.iot.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
