  • Required for YAPI workstations to communicate with the server and each other
Private Wireless Network (WiFi)
  • Must have a strong signal around the office
  • Must be separate from any guest WiFi network
  • Must be on the same subnet/broadcast domain as your practice's server or be bridged to the server's subnet

For YAPI to communicate with the server appropriately, the following exceptions will also need to be created in the Windows Firewall settings:

Firewall Exceptions
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.

 

Additional Notes
  • 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.
