Make sure that you are able to connect to the Internet in case you need to license the product online.

ThinPoint uses two types of connection to the host:

Universal Client: connection without port forwarding or firewall adjustments.
Direct Access Client: connection requires port forwarding to the host or secure access through IPSec, SSL, and PPTP VPN.

Both Universal and Direct Access clients provide Two-Factor Authentication (when ran from a USB key) and Single-Sign-On (when ran on a hard drive and the option is enabled during the client creation).

If you are connecting through Universal Client (recommended), go directly to installation instructions, otherwise check the following:

Configure your firewall to allow inbound connections on TCP port 3389 or 4333.
If you want to allow access to ThinPoint over the Internet through direct IP address, open and forward TCP port 3389 or 4333 on your router to the IP of the ThinPoint Host. However for security reasons, it is recommended that Internet access to ThinPoint be given via Universal Client or an IPSec, SSL, and PPTP VPN instead of opening a port on the router.
