Step 5: Create the Host File



This step is only necessary for users with floating licenses.

You can open Realflow on a client computer that needs to borrow a license from the RLM. When the License Wizard comes up, use the third option; in the next window:

  • Enter the IP address of the computer where the RLM is running under “Host name”.

  • By default, the RLM uses port 5053 and this is exactly the number you have to add here.

  • Click on “Finish” to complete the licensing process.



Alternatively, to establish the connection you also can:

  • either store a file on every client, called "host.lic" (see table below for the location). This file requires a single entry: 
    HOST ip_of_computer_with_RLM_installed ANY 5053
     

  • or define an environment variable:
    nextlimit_LICENSE=5053@ip_of_computer_with_RLM_installed



This is the place for the "host.lic" file:
 

Linux

$(HOME)/Documents/realflow/10

OS X

/Users/user_name/Documents/realflow/10

Windows

C:\Users\user_name\Documents\realflow\10
