Installing a SIX 2013 Client



Review the supported environments for SIX.


Check out our hardware/software requirements.



The SIX Client can be installed on as many machines on your network that you desire.


The SIX Client must be installed on Windows, there is no Mac version of SIX. If using a Mac, you will need to install on Windows either in Bootcamp or Parallels.


You should install any third-party software you wish to use with SIX like Visio and/or AutoCAD prior to installing the SIX Client. If you plan to install these later, see here for information.

Port 1433 TCP

Port 1434 UDP
