Java Virtual Machine (JVM) Requirements
A Java Virtual Machine (JVM), or a Java Developer Kit (JDK), fully compliant with the Sun J2SDK 5.0 is required to run 123 Web Messenger Server. We recommend J2SDK 5.0 or a higher version.

123 Web Messenger Server Software needs at least ONE free port. The default port is: 1558
123 Web Messenger Server Software can listen to two ports simultaneously to guarantee the accessibility:
a low one (<1024) and a high one (1024~65535).
To ensure your users don't have to configure a firewall before accessing 123 Web Messenger, the low port can be set to 90 or 443, since it is allowed by most users' firewalls.
But remember, ports below 1024 can only be accessed using flash player 7 or 8. That's why you may set a high port (1024~65535) to serve lower version flash player.
123 Web Messenger Server Software has a built-in web server JUST for testing purpose. The default port value for this web server is 1560.
Note: In Linux, only root user can start the ports below 1024.
