MTP/IP Supported Platforms

MTP/IP is currently supported on the operating systems and hardware platforms listed below.  It will also run on any system which has binary compatibility with these.  Not all MTP/IP applications are available on all platforms, so check the individual product listings for minimum system requirements.

Windows   win32

Windows XP SP3 or Server 2003 SP2, and all later versions, running on an x86 processor.
Binaries are 32-bit x86 and are compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows systems.
Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, or later is recommended.

Windows 64-bit  win64

Windows Vista or Server 2008, and all later versions, running on an x86_64 processor.
Binaries are 64-bit x86_64 and require 64-bit Windows systems.
Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, or later is recommended.

Linux x86   linux

Linux kernel 2.6.9 or later with GLIBC 2.3.3 or later.
Binaries are built under Fedora Core 3 and are compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
Some 64-bit systems may require installation of 32-bit compatibility libraries.

Linux x86-64   linux64

Linux kernel 2.6.23 or later with GLIBC 2.7 or later.
Binaries are built under Fedora 8 and require 64-bit systems.

Mac OS X   osx

Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later on an Intel processor.
Binaries are built for both 32-bit and 64-bit processors.

Solaris SPARC   solaris

Solaris 8 (SunOS 5.8) or later on SPARC processors.
Binaries are compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit UltraSPARC systems.

Solaris x86   solx86

Solaris 10 (SunOS 5.10) or later on x86 processors.

FreeBSD x86   FreeBSD

FreeBSD 6.x or later on i386 or compatible hardware.
Binaries are statically linked to avoid the need for compat6 on later systems.

HP-UX Itanium   hpia

HP-UX 11i v3 or later on Itanium CPUs.

AIX 6.1   aix

AIX 6.1 on POWER7 or compatible CPUs.

Deprecated Platforms

We will periodically reasses support for legacy platforms which may no longer be in use or which may not be compatible with modern systems.  Customers will receive advance notice of any systems being considered for elimination.  See Tech Note 0019 for a list of deprecated platforms.


DEI will consider porting MTP/IP applications to any environment that supports UDP/IP networking.  The most suitable targets are POSIX environments capable of running or building GCC 4.1.2 or later.  This porting may be performed at no additional charge if you provide an exemplar system suitable for developing and compiling the port.  The exemplar system must include any necessary hardware, operating system, and development environment, and will become the property of DEI.  A minimum purchase may be required.

Please contact us if you would like to request or suggest support for additional platforms.
