OVERVIEW

Before installing Docker and VersaVision Core on the Linux (Ubuntu) Computer/Server/VM, there are some files that need to be uploaded.
The user will need to get the IP Address of the Computer/Server/VM.
Verify with your IT Department that the IP Address assigned is either a Static IP or DHCP Reserved Address.
The guide below will explain uploading the files via an SSH Client, feel free to use a different SSH Client or upload the files using the Terminal if you have physical access.


REQUIREMENTS

Computer/Server/VM must be loaded with Ubuntu Server 22 or 24 LTS.
IT must assign an Administrator level user name and password for VersaCall Installation/User.
Internet Access Required for the Installation process. Access can be removed after installation.
SSH Client is required if the User/Installer does not have physical access to the server.
Server/Computer/VM must have a Static IP Address or a DHCP Reserved IP Address.
