You can run Quicksteam Node on a virtual machine. We recommend using HyperV as a hypervisor. Quickstream will not work properly if NTP service is enabled and time synchronization comes from the hypervisor. Disable time synchronization from the hypervisor and leave NTP running in VM. If it is not possible check if time synchronization is enabled. If so please disable NTP service.
If you are using a subscription license your Quickstream Node is required to have access to https://license.cloud.quickstream.tech/ (port 443). Please open the outgoing connection on your firewall if required. When the connection is lost the Quickstream Node will continue working for up to 7 days
