Hard and software requirements of the IMS

Server: Posix-compliant operating system (tested on Linux and Sun Solaris); LDAPv3 directory service must be available on the same or another maschine, openldap recommended. Native Client: Posix-compliant operating system (tested on Linux and Sun Solaris); Web Client: only Web-Browser is required. If utilisation of stronger authentication modes is needed, a JVM and a locally installed ┬┐Native Client┬┐ are necessary.
