Tech Note 0004
Minimum specifications of platforms supported by MTP/IP technology
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.
Windows 64-bit win64
Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2, and all later versions, running on an x86_64 or compatible processor.
Requires a 64-bit Windows system.
macOS 10.12 or later and an x86_64 or Apple Silicon processor.
Linux x86-64 linux64
Linux kernel 3.10 or later with glibc 2.17 or later on an x86_64 (64-bit) or compatible processor.
Binaries are built under CentOS 7 and require 64-bit systems.
Solaris x86 64-bit solx86_64
Solaris 10 (SunOS 5.10) or later on x86_64 compatible processors.
Binaries are 64-bit.
FreeBSD amd64 FreeBSD
FreeBSD 11 or later on amd64 or x86_64 hardware.
We periodically reasses our support requirements and may discontinue support for platforms which are no longer in demand or do not provide necessary features. See Tech Note 0019 for a list of deprecated platforms.
DEI will consider porting MTP/IP software to other environments that support UDP/IP networking. The most suitable targets are POSIX environments capable of running Clang 3.4.2 or later. A minimum purchase or additional fees may be required. Please contact us if you would like to request or suggest support for additional platforms.
