Other Requirements


There are two types of printers you can use with Tenmast programs, laser and dot matrix. Almost any printer should work, but there are a few brands we recommend based on experience and their reliability.

Printers must not be “Host Based.” A host based printer is defined as a printer that relies on the computer’s processor to generate printable pages. Printers that have a PCL driver are not host based.


Scanners must have a TWAIN driver. Scanners that use a TWAIN driver are compatible with Tenmast Software.

Internet Access

In order to best utilize the Tenmast system as well as comply with the requirements of HUD, your agency must have access to the Internet. Installation of a firewall appliance is mandatory for protection of your network. Check with your Internet Service Provider to determine if they are providing the best firewall protection!


We recommend you have a server based corporate anti-virus solution that has agents on each workstation. If you need a recommendation on a solution, our IT team will review your system during the discovery phase of your implementation.

Network Cabling

We recommend standard LAN configurations using CAT5e or CAT6 cabling. Gigabit networks are recommended, but 10/100 networks will meet minimum specifications.

Remote Backup System

Tenmast requires that all clients have an automatic data backup system in place. Data changes to the Tenmast system should be backed up daily and a full network backup is recommended each week. We recommend our own remote data backup system. For more information on Remote Data Backup facilitated by Tenmast contact jhughes@tenmast.com
