Kofax Front-Office Server with routable addresses from the server.

Kofax Front-Office Server uses the IP address of the first network connection listed in the
connection order. If there are multiple network cards in the server, you may need to change the
order of network connections so that the connection used by MFPs and destination types is first.
Refer to the Microsoft Windows Server documentation for instructions on changing the
connection order.

Installing on a Local Drive

Kofax Front-Office Server must be installed on a local drive, which can be any drive letter. Do not
install Kofax Front-Office Server on a network drive, including a mapped drive.

Requirement for Free Hard Drive Space

recommended as an initial amount of free hard drive space for the database. Additional space will
be needed as the database grows. You can manage the database size by periodically purging old
records. Kofax Front-Office Server can also block database requests if the free drive space reaches
a specified threshold. For information about freeing hard drive space, refer to the Kofax Front-
