Linked Helper 2 is a standalone program that works as a smart browser. It can work on:
1. Windows 7 or higher (64-bit only, ARM-based processors are not supported):
- Windows 7, Windows 2008: must have these updates:
- For Windows OS higher than Windows 7 and Windows 2008 - Windows 10, Windows 2010, Windows 2016: just make sure that all latest updates are installed
2. macOS: macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) or higher (64-bit only, both Intel and ARM versions supported).
3. Ubuntu: x64 (64-bit only, ARM-based processors are not supported), 12.04 or higher, GUI must be installed.
Please, note that Linked Helper 2 does not work on ChromeOS (ChromiumOS), hence it cannot be installed on Chromebooks, but you can rent a remote server on Windows / Ubuntu and manage Linked Helper there.
You can use these formulas to get minimal requirements:
|For a single LinkedIn account||For N LinkedIn accounts (N - number of simultaneously running LinkedIn accounts)|
|RAM, Gigabytes free||2.5||0.5 + 2 × N|
|CPU real cores, free||0.5 - 1||From 0.5 × N to 1 × N|
HDD / SSD free space, Gigabytes
|4||2 + 2 × N|
Renting remote server
If your PC is not powerful enough to handle all LinkedIn accounts you want to manage, you can rent a server in order to run Linked Helper there. You can get certain advantages such as:
- No interruptions. Linked Helper's work will not be affected by the PC failures, electricity blackouts, issues with your ISP, etc.
- 24/7 availability from any part of the world. All you need is a laptop with an internet connection.
- You can give access to the remote server to your colleague/boss in case he/she needs to check your performance rate or change the workflow and add new prospects to the Queue while you are on vacation leave.
- You can rent a much more powerful machine than the one you currently work on and run more LinkedIn accounts than your PC can handle.
You can find complete instructions on setting up a remote server, either VPS or dedicated self-managed server in this article - How to install Linked Helper on a VPS / dedicated server
In case you`re planning to rent a server for managing multiple LinkedIn accounts, please, consider buying a dedicated server, not VPS (Virtual Private Server). It is possible that you will get only ~20% of the real capacity from your hardware if you choose VPS.
I'll give you an example: our software was hosted on a VPS and we had occasional drop downs as if it was overloaded. Therefore, on VPS the results were 4 times worse than on the dedicated server, yet the latter was 2 times less powerful than the former. At the same time, for few (1 - 3) LinkedIn accounts VPS may suit as well.
As an example of the above-mentioned services:
Dedicated hosting: Ionos - Dedicated servers
The configuration in the screenshot below is able to handle 11 LinkedIn accounts running at the same time:
VPS: Ionos VPS
For managing one LinkedIn account:
For managing three LinkedIn accounts:
