Prerequisites for Installation of QVscribe Team Server (QTS)

Below lists the prerequisites for installing QTS. If you have any further questions, please contact


Windows 2012 Server or later

  • Ensure that the server is up-to-date with all the latest patches installed

  • Check for updates, install them and restart your machine

System Requirements

  • Processor: 2 * 2 GH x 64 chip

  • RAM: 8GB (12 GB recommended)

Public IP address

  • The IP or hostname must be accessible to the end-users. If end-users are mandated to be on VPN within your networks, then the IP address will be within your LAN. If the end-users are connecting outside of your VPN, then you would need a public IP address. 


Please ensure that Google Chrome (latest edition) is installed on the server. Google Chrome will be needed to open the QVscribe for Teams dashboard.

License Management

Active Directory

If your Team plans to use AD for license management, please ensure the following details are prepared before the installation meeting.

Active Directory credentials for the LDAP form in QTS


AD User : CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=qra,DC=qts, DC=com

AD Password : ******

AD Host and Port :

Base Domain : DC=qra,DC=qts,DC=com

  • The form would look similar to the image below:


Active Directory Connection Details




The distinguished name of the user that the application will use when connecting to the directory server.


- cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=ad,dc=example,dc=com

- cn=user,dc=domain,dc=name


The specific privileges required by the user to connect to LDAP are 'Bind' and 'Read' (user info, group info, group membership, update sequence number, deleted objects), which the user can obtain by being a member of the Active Directory's built-in administrators group.


The password of the user is specified above.

Note: Connecting to an LDAP server requires that this application log in to the server with the username and password configured here. As a result, this password cannot be one-way hashed - it must be recoverable in the context of this application. The password is currently stored in the database with obfuscation. To further guarantee its security, you need to ensure that other processes do not have OS-level read permissions for this application's database or configuration files.


The hostname of your directory server and the port on which your directory server is listening.

Examples: (for example, for SSL)


The root distinguished name (DN) to use when running queries against the directory server.


- o=example,c=com

- cn=users,dc=ad,dc=example,dc=com

For Microsoft Active Directory, specify the base DN in the following format: dc=domain1,dc=local. You will need to replace the domain1 and local for your specific configuration. Microsoft Server provides a tool called ldp.exe which is useful for finding out and configuring the LDAP structure.


Check if the connection to the directory server is an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) connection. Note that you will need to configure an SSL certificate to use this setting



If your Team does not plan to use AD, the QTS server gives the QVscribe admin the ability to create a username and password for any users to use when using QVscribe on their computer.

The QVscribe admin will be responsible for the distribution and maintenance of these usernames and passwords.
