Below are minimum specifications for skitter monitors.
|Processor||PIII 1Ghz or better ( Athlon should be fine, too )|
|Hard drive||9gig or bigger|
10baseT is okay for current experiments, but we strongly encourage 100baseT to keep options open for future experiments.
|Operating System||FreeBSD 4.8 (it runs on just about any freebsd from 3.0 on, but for security reasons, 4.8 is the best)|
ssh in from 18.104.22.168/25 ( 22.214.171.124 at the least )
3100/tcp in from 126.96.36.199
8443/tcp out to 188.8.131.52
icmp in & out to any ( this is the actual skitter traffic )
some sort of ntp access
|Required bandwidth||By default, skitter limits itself to 300 52-byte packets per second. This limiting is conservative. i.e. it works out to be less than this in real situations. This setting is also configurable.|
