System requirements:

Before registering for a Live Web class, please verify that you meet the requirements to participate in the class. For most Live Web classes, you will complete the course exercises through our virtual lab. The virtual lab allows you to access the software used in class over the Internet, so that you do not need this software on your local machine. If firewall problems prevent you from connecting to the virtual lab, then you need access to the software taught in class on a Windows operating system.
