If MongoDB is set to run on a different computer from the Webserver , then Port 27017 on the computer running MongoDB must be accessible from the Webserver computer in order for it to connect.,
|IP Address||You need a public IP for the server running FileCloud. Typically, this means you need a static IP for the server as dynamic IPs provided by most ISPs keep changing.|
|Network Connection||You need a good quality network connection to the FileCloud Server. Minimum should be 512 Kbps upload and download for good experience. The faster the connection the better the experience.|
|Domain Name||You will typically need a top level domain name. For example: cloud.mycompany.com or mycompanycloud.com. You can purchase a domain name from any domain registrar and then point the DNS for that domain name to the public IP of the server that is running FileCloud.|
|SSL Certificate||You will also need a valid SSL certificate for your domain name to setup and use https with your filecloud server for best security.|
