  Networking and System Security
Any standard network configuration which will allow users to access the Internet should be acceptable (including the Internet Connection Sharing feature available through the Windows operating system).  Because any computer which connects to the Internet can become vulnerable, we strongly recommend the use of a firewall to protect your technology assets.  RTO is designed to utilize standard Internet protocols, which means no special rules or exceptions must be made in your firewall in order to use the system.
  Special note about Internet Connection Sharing (ICS):  Because of the increased demand on the workstation which handles Internet traffic in an ICS set-up, that machine should be equipped with CPU, RAM and hard disk resources sufficient to ensure smooth operation of all connections.  We will be happy to provide additional information about that type of configuration upon request.


  Internet Connectivity
Recommended: Business class high speed internet access.

  The RTO system is designed for use by any PC able to access the Internet.  Experience has shown us, however, that connections which provide minimum upload and download speeds of at least 256k work better.  If multiple users will be accessing RTO at the same time, or if the connection will be shared with other Internet traffic such as Web browsing, e-mail or file downloads, more bandwidth may be required.  Higher speed connections typically offer the best performance, and are recommended for most customers.  In areas where these technologies are not offered, our staff can review locally available options and assist you in finding the best alternative.  We can not guarantee system performance or response time via dial-up modem or satellite.
