E-Stim Connect is the software that allows you to connect an E-Stim Systems 2B to our E-Stim Connect Server, and thus allow a remote partner to control your 2B over the Internet.
Although E-Stim Connect has been developed and tested on on Windows 10, it has been tested on Windows 7, and should work on Windows 8 and 8.1. We also offer support for E-Stim Connect on a Mac and offer E-Stim Connect for Linux, although the Linux version is not actively supported at this time.
In common with many other applications and programs you may need to disable your Antivirus software and have admin permissions in order to install E-Stim Connect. Once the software has been installed correctly your Antivirus can be switched back on.
