The Syncplify.me Server! system service may fail to start, or otherwise fail to answer incoming connections, if the following requirements are not met. So it is very important to double-check every item in the list below before running the installer.
- No other FTP(S) or SFTP (therefore also SSH) server should be running on the same TCP ports used by Syncplify.me Server! By default FTP runs on ports 21 and 20, FTPS (implicit) runs on ports 990 and 989, and the SSH/SFTP service runs on port 22. Please make sure such ports are available.
- Make sure your server or VM has at least 256 MB of RAM (512 recommended).
- Make sure your server or VM has at least 100 MB free hard disk space.
- If you will be running Syncplify.me Server! behind a firewall, please, make sure all NAT rules on your firewall are in place and working correctly.
Performing the few simple checks here above can avoid 99.9% of all installation problems, and guarantee you’ll be up and running in a matter of minutes.
