  • It is OK to install the Proof Server on virtual as long as printer connections are all via network (which is usually the case anyway in the Esko environment).
  • If you really want to connect to a printer via USB, the server has to be on a non-virtual OS.
  • The tools (Proof Client, Verification tool, LinTool) are preferred to be installed on non-virtual. For connection to spectrophotometers, the tools MUST be installed on non-virtual otherwise it's not supported.
