Hi Cris,

In general, any current desktop or server PC capable of running Windows XP will be sufficient for most needs.

Generally speaking, we would recommend a Pentium 4 of at least 1.8Ghz (or equivalent).

256MB is sufficient if there are no other applications that will be run on the PC. But if you will be running any other application servers on the same PC, then you should add more memory. In this day and age, 512MB is a more realistic requirement, but you can get away with 256MB if the machine is dedicated to NowSMS.

Disk space is the wild card, as it depends on whether or not NowSMS is being used as an MMSC, and it depends on how long messages are retained for. That requires some more estimates based upon your specific setup.
