    I don't think a preposition is necessary- I have heard it mostly without, but of the two, I'd use on.

    So, the following two must be correct also.

    -This program runs on server.

    -The output of this command depends of the software that is installed on (the) server-side.

    - This program runs on the server
    - I'd say: The output of this command depends on the software that is installed (on the) server-side
