Browsers connect to the XLeap service via standard port TCP 443 (https; TLS 1.3). The conferencing service uses ports UDP 20,000 - 65,000 falling back to TCP 443 if those ports are blocked.
XLeap runs in recent versions of all popular browsers. XLeap does not require downloads, plug-ins, or add-ons.

* XLeap sessions which run over an extended period of time (anytime sessions) typically do not require the conferencing service and will admit participants with legacy browsers that would not meet the requirements of the conferencing service. This is also true for Portable Servers, and for sessions which use a third-party conferencing service.
