Screen Connect: What are the system requirements for ScreenConnect?


Customer System Requirements

Almost any guest system that can connect to the Internet can be controlled remotely via ScreenConnect. The primary requirements our system looks for when establishing the connection is the presence of either .NET 2.0+ or Java 1.6+.

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows® XP (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • Windows Vista® (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • Windows® 7 (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • Windows Server 2003 (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • Windows Server 2008 (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • Windows 98, Windows 98 SE (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • Windows ME (.NET Framework 2.0+ or JRE 1.6+)
  • OS X (JRE 1.6)
  • Solaris (JRE 1.6)
  • Linux (JRE 1.6)

Note:  JRE is the Java Runtime Environment

Supported Browsers

  • Internet Explorer® 6+
  • Firefox® 1.5+
  • Safari® 3.0+
  • Mozilla 1.9
  • Opera 9.2


You may run into situations where a Mac® won't have JRE installed, especially if it's a new image which hasn't had Mac OS updates installed.  If JRE doesn't work, check to see if there are any updates available by clicking on the Apple® menu, then Software Update.  If JRE isn't installed, it will likely show up here.

What firewall ports does ScreenConnect use?
PLATO®'s ScreenConnect server is listening on ports 80 and 443.  As long as a customer's workstation is allowed to make outbound requests on those ports (the standard http and https ports), they should be able to join a session.
