  • 512MB RAM (minimum) with 512MB-1GB RAM recommended
  • 50 MB of disk space (more if you intend to download large numbers of records)

Both your computer’s firewall and your network firewall need to allow these outbound TCP connections. BookWhere itself is not a Z39.50 database target. The most frequently used ports are 210, 2100, 2200, 5666, 7090, 9909, and 9991. Other port numbers may also be used.
  • Unicode™ font package required if displaying of non-Latin characters Windows is usually delivered with Lucida Sans Unicode which contains a number of character font faces outside of the common Latin-1 character ranges. Other widely available choices are Arial Unicode MS. A number of commercially available fonts are also an option depending on local requirements.
