Did not get the meaning of it.
Also should I install On Premise (Non-personal) ,on my system or with the help of admin in Server?
My laptop wont be ON all the time.

Hi Anu,

Since your laptop won’t be running at all times and probably uses a wireless network connection the better option would be to install the On-premises recommend gateway on the server.
