Installation notes
The Portfolio NetPublish client is installed automatically with the Portfolio client. This installer is used to install the NetPublish Server portion that works in conjunction with your web server.
System Requirements
  • Server System Requirements
  • Adobe Version Cue Server 3.1.1 or higher
  • Mac OS X v10.4.4
  • Portfolio Server 8.5.1
The Adobe Version Cue Server need not be installed on the same server as the Portfolio Server. However, for best performance, it is recommended that they be on the same machine. When Portfolio Server is installed on the same machine as the Adobe Version Cue server, the more processing power, RAM and disk speed available, the better.

End-User System Requirements

Adobe Version Cue Client 3.1.1 or higher
Adobe Creative Suite with Bridge 2.1.1 or higher

All end users must connect to Portfolio Project Sync projects with Adobe CS3 applications. Previous versions of Creative Suite applications are not supported.

Due to the design of Version Cue and Bridge, it’s important to note that as files are used, the files are cached on the end user’s system. This can require a significant amount of hard drive space depending upon the number and size of files being accessed.
