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:

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