The following steps are to install Crash Magic as a service. Clients that wish to run Crash Magic under Windows IIS should skip this section.

If required clients should now configure their firewall to run with Crash Magic. By default Crash Magic will use port 80 for the web service and port 25 to access email.


Proceed to the Configure GIS section of the manual to proceed with the installation.


Now provide the install login, password and web address to the database administrator. Pass the  the same information(install login, password and web address) on to the person designated as the group administrator for Crash Magic and instruct the group administrator to wait for notification from the database administrator before performing their installation tasks
