YAPI System & Network Requirements
YAPI is designed to operate on many systems with multiple software and hardware combinations. The following are YAPI's system, hardware, and network requirements:
|Supported Operating Systems|
|Windows 8.1||Home, Professional, Enterprise|
|Windows 10||Home, Professional, Enterprise|
|Windows Server 2012||Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter|
|Windows Server 2012 R2||Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter|
|Windows Server 2016||Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter|
|Windows Server 2019||Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter|
|CPU||Dual-Core Processor||Quad-Core Processor|
|RAM||4 GB||8 GB|
|Disk Space||600 MB||10 GB|
|Fast, Wired Ethernet||
|Private Wireless Network (WiFi)||
For YAPI to communicate with the server appropriately, the following exceptions will also need to be created in the Windows Firewall settings:
|TCP Inbound Ports||80, 443, 587, 18000-18009, 18800, 18802|
|TCP Outbound Ports||80, 443, 587, 18000-18009, 18800, 18802|
|UDP Inbound Ports||3520, 18002, 19000, 19001|
|UDP Outbound Ports||3520, 18002, 19000, 19001|
For more detailed information regarding which ports we require and their use cases, see YAPI Incoming/Outgoing Firewall Port Requirements.
Only 1 YAPI Service can be installed per server/database.
YAPI and your practice management software (Dentrix, Open Dental, or Eaglesoft) must be installed on the same server.
Your practice management software must be installed and configured on your server prior to YAPI installation. For Eaglesoft users, the Eaglesoft client must also be installed on the server.
Environmental conditions such as Anti-virus, Active Directory Group Policies, DNS Service, and/or Email Services can impact the performance and specifications required.
It is not recommended to use the server as a workstation.
If your practice uses a virtual machine (VM) or emulation software such as Parallels, VMWare, VirtualBox, or Hyper-V (this is not common), we recommend configuring your server's virtual network card in bridged mode on the host computer.
