Confirm Installation

Specify CarGuroo components to install
This case assumes that all Milestone and CarGuroo components will be installed on the same host: 

In the case of a multi-server system configuration, you have the opportunity to install carGuroo components on different hosts.
In this case, starting by installing the carGuroo recognition server is recommended. 

The carGuroo server can be installed on a separate host within the same network segment with other Milestone components.
Also, within one system you can run several carGuroo recognition servers.
All recognition servers will be managed through the XProtect Management Client.

carGuroo recognition server path, ports, DB connection

Check plugin installation paths and specify a path for the events data storing*
*Make sure you have enough free space on your hard drive. Event photos take up a lot of hard drive space.
If there is not enough space, then change the carGuroo events storing the path to a disk with at least 180 GB of free space.

Specify the main communication ports*

Specify PostgreSQL database connection settings.
(In case of updating existing system enter proper password for the PostgresSQL DB.
In case of new installation specify the password which you will use for the BD).
