The VCS Java Console requires a minimum of 256MB RAM and 1280x1024
display resolution. The color depth of the monitor must be at least 8-bit (256
colors), although 24-bit is recommended.
The minimum requirements for Windows clients are Pentium II, 300MHz,
256MB RAM, and 800x600 display resolution. (Symantec recommends a
minimum of Pentium III, 400MHz, and 512MB RAM.) The color depth of the
monitor must be at least 8-bit (256 colors), and the graphics card must be able to
render 2D images.
