You’ll need to choose a computer which will host the license server for BioMedware’s products. This machine must be visible on your network to the client/lab computers.
- First, on the host machine run the utility lmtools.exe and select the System Settings tab. A host id based on the Ethernet address is listed.
- Provide us with your contact information (your name, phone number and the name of your academic institution) and include the first hexadecimal field and the IP address of the host machine. The default network port the license server will use is 27000. If you need a different port to be used tell us this as well.
- We’ll create and return to you a license file that the license service accesses to serve up licenses to the client machines.
- Use the lmtools utility again to create the license service. (Note: The license file and the files lmgrd.exe and biomedware.exe all need to be on the license machine.)
Next follow these steps:
- Launch lmtools.exe and select the Service/License file tab. Choose the “Configuration using services” radio button.
- Select the Config services tab and specify the locations of lmgrd.exe, the license file, and a log file (which you’ll first have to create). You can optionally specify a name for the service. Click the Save button to create the service.
- Under the Utilities tab specify again the path to the license file, set the vendor to “bmedware“, and click the Add Vendor Path button.
- Go to the Start/Stop/Reread tab and click on the Start Server button. The status button at the bottom of the window should indicate that the service has been started.
- Go to the Server Status tab and click on the Perform Status Enquiry button. The report generated in the text field should indicate that the license service is running and ready to serve up floating licenses to network users.
- Install the appropriate BioMedware software on the client machines. A file called BMWClient.lic is installed in the same directory as the main executable on each machine. This file will need to be modified so that it specifies the IP address and host id of the license server. These should be the same as what is listed in the license file.
- Verify the software can see the license server by launching the application.
