pcMobile Prerequisites

You need to determine which IP port should be used for pcMobile server. The normal port to use is port 80 (http). However this may be in use by another application or server. A simple way (not 100% reliable) of determining whether port 80 is available on the target machine is to try accessing it using a web browser entering “localhost” as URL. If you get some type of response, the port is definitely busy.

If you are installing on a client machine that has the IP telephony application “Skype” active, you may have an issue since Skype by default occupies port 80. This is easily fixed by changing in Tools → Options → Advanced → Connection and un-checking the “Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections”.

The server is self contained and needs very limited resources for basic operation. You will need

  1. A free IP port number. Default is 80 (http).
  2. About 200 MB of disk space.
  3. Local Administrator privileges on the target machine.
