System requirements

The following are the system requirements for Transfer CFT.

Supported operating systems and browsers

Refer to the Axway Supported Platforms Guide for more information.

Disk space and RAM requirements

Transfer CFT has the following hardware requirements:

  • Disk space requirement
    • 1.5 to 5 Gigabyte: minimum disk space to allow for future updates, SPs, and continued performance
  • RAM Requirement
    • 128 Megabyte: minimum dedicated per host


The Transfer CFT Copilot client is based on Java technology. To avoid compatibility issues Axway provides the correct JRE, which is installed during the product installation in the <Axway home>/java/<platform name>/jreX directory, where jreX represents the Java version.

Clients that connect to Copilot require Java 8. If you intend to implement EBICS (UNIX/Windows) or Secure Relay you also require Java 8.

Java 8 is delivered with the product, with the following exceptions:

  • Java 7: linux-s390-32, linux-s390-64, sun-sparc-32, sun-x86-32
  • Java 6: hpux-parisc-32, hpux-parisc-64, linux-ia64-64

Secure Relay Java installation directory prerequisite

When using Secure Relay, Java must be installed in the same environment as the Transfer CFT installation. The Master Agent is thus managed, while the Router Agent can be in another environment.

Shared file systems

For details on supported shared file systems and configuration details, refer to the section About multi-node architecture.

Installer screen resolution

When the Installer is run in GUI mode, a resolution of at least 800 x 600 is required.

GUI mode requirement

UNIX only

GUI mode is supported on Windows, UNIX, and Linux. However, to use on UNIX platforms, the installer requires an X-Window environment. To use an X-Window distributed environment on Unix, you must export the DISPLAY environment variable: export DISPLAY=myhost.mydomain:0.0
