Transfer Client Requirements

Note: This guide describes how to manage transfers from user workstations using the Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition Transfer Client, but using this client is not a requirement. Web Edition users can also transfer files to and from the Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition server using any Reflection for Secure IT Secure Shell client or other Secure Shell (SSH) client.

The Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition Transfer Client is a Java applet that runs in a web browser. Client workstations must meet these requirements.

Users must be running one of the following supported browsers. JavaScript and cookies must be enabled.

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 8 or later, Windows only)

    Note: To connect to the Transfer Client using Internet Explorer running on Windows Server, disable Internet Explorer enhanced security (IE ESC) for administrators and users.

  • Mozilla Firefox (version 12 or later)
  • Google Chrome (version 26 or later)
  • Apple Safari (version 6.0 or later, Mac only)

Java must be installed.

  • Users who don't have Java installed will see a message with information about how to download Java when they first try to connect. Java is available free of charge from the Oracle website:

  • By default, the Transfer Client requires Java version 7 Update 21 or later.

    Note: Apple systems running Mac OS X 10.6 and below come with Java pre-installed, and only support updates to Java version 6 (1.6.0_nn). To support users running on these systems, you need to modify the minimum required Java version, which is specified in the Web Transfer Server properties file. On systems running Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and above, Java is not pre-installed and users can get the latest Java 7 from the Oracle website.
