For details, see System Requirements and Recommendations.
How many notebooks can NoteShare Server manage?
NoteShare Server can support at least 36 simultaneous NoteShare users accessing and working on the same shared notebook, and is thus ideally suited for classrooms and small offices.
What security and privacy mechanisms are used to protect shared notebooks?
Notebooks are protected by using private spaces or sharing passwords or both. A shared notebook cannot be accessed remotely via the Internet without a private space or a sharing password. The use of either a private space or a sharing password also enables encryption of all communications and content between the server and the viewer of the notebook.
Do I need OS X Server or an XServe system to run NoteShare Server?
No special server configuration is required. NoteShare Server is an application designed to run on a minimal system such as a Mac Mini running Tiger. NoteShare Server runs fine with Leopard as well.
Can I run NoteShare Server on an OS X Server system?
Yes but not as a headless "server" task. NoteShare Server behaves like any other user launched application and requires that you log-in first to initially launch it. Once launched, it can be run non-stop.
What version of Java do I need to use the NoteShare Administrator Web applet?
Java 1.5 (or later) run-time environment for OS X (available from Apple and Sun)
Does NoteShare Server work with NoteShare Express?
Yes, remote viewers using the NoteShare Express viewer can view notebooks being shared from your Server, the same as notebooks being shared from regular copies of NoteShare. In fact, the NoteShare Express software required for serving Express viewers is included in the NoteShare Server installation package and automatically installed along with Server's other components.
Can I host and serve Web notebooks from a NoteShare Server system at the same time?
Yes. In fact, you can set a new feature in web notebooks to update themselves automatically upon any save event to the source notebook. For example, a teacher or classroom might have a daily shared homework notebook that is also accessible as a web notebook for parents and staff who are not using NoteShare.
