CAS will take a minute to load, as the database is initialized & defaults created. Hang tight!
You’ll find yourself at the FastTrack Installation screen.
Fill in the requested info. Required items are marked with a red asterisk “*”.
Afterwards, you’ll be brought to the login screen:
Login using the login credentials that you created in FastTrack Installation.
Add 2FA verification!
Turn on 2FA (Two Factor Authentication)! Again, your money is counting on you to protect it – so avail yourself of every opportunity to use any tools provided to accomplish that.
Two factor authentication is a system that forces you to prove your identity twice. Once with the password (that you changed in the previous step – right?), and a second time with a different method.
The method used by CAS is a RFC 6238 compliant implementation of Google Authenticator. This free app is available on the Google Play store. It provides you with a time-based rolling code to enter (in addition to your password) when you login to CAS.
Now that you've successfully logged into CAS....
You will need to configure CAS settings to do sales & purchases. This section covers the most very basic setup you'll need to perform to get functional fast.
Defaults have already been created.
CAS is based on a MySQL database. Certain defaults are created during installation, but there are some entries that require your input to proceed. These entries need only be created once in most instances. Whether you have one, or a hundred terminals, you must configure these items. It would be wise to spend some time here and configure them properly the first time.
The CAS has an automatic timeout. You will be logged out and lose any unsaved changes if you leave the CAS unattended. Make sure you are prepared to enter the required information before changing a setting.
