  3. Are the security risks in talkyoo webconferences?

    No! As one of the few providers of web conferencing, talkyoo/FastViewer uses end-to-end encryption. With the so-called 256-bit AES encryption, all content and information shared between participants during a conference is protected by the encryption method currently most accepted according to international standards.

  4. What happens with the data exchanged while a webconference?

    The data is neither recorded nor otherwise processed or forwarded in any way. The information is encrypted by a 256 bit AES key in such a way that it is not possible to read or restore the data on the Talkyoo/FastViewer servers.

  5. How the connection is technically established?

    When establishing a connection for a web conference, the first attempt is to connect via port 5000 (TCP). If this is not possible, the attempt is made via port 443 (HTPPS) and then via port 80 (HTTP). Or alternatively, if available, via a proxy server. The proxy settings are automatically read by the browser.

  6. Are there limits if participants are behind a firewall?

    This is not to be expected. If participants have "normal" access to the Internet from their PC, and are not subject to restrictions there, nothing stands in the way of participating in a web conference.

  7. What requirements have to be met for FastViewer?

    System requirements: Windows at least Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2003 SP2, OSX at least 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and DSL 2000 internet connection.
