The CodeMeter server is part of the CodeMeter driver, so you only need to select a computer on your network that will act as a CodeMeter server. To set up a CodeMeter server as a network license server, you will need the following:
CodeMeter driver must be installed. Click on Tools and Utilities from the start-up screen, or browse your DVD directory for the CODEMETER folder.
Note: There is no need for a server-level operating system for the CodeMeter server. You can use one of the workstations as a CodeMeter server; you must keep it running during work hours.
After you have your server running and the CodeMeter driver is installed, start the server as described below:
All CodeMeter settings can be managed in CodeMeter WebAdmin. To start it: Open CodeMeter Center (from Applications or using the Start menu) and click on WebAdmin or simply open localhost:22350 on your browser.
All clients on the local network should find the server automatically. In case this does not work (e.g. your server is in a different subnet, or you are connecting remotely through the Internet), then you may need to specify the server’s hostname IP address. On the client:
This field can have multiple entries; the client searches for available licenses in the specified order and only on the specified servers. Only when the list is empty does the client search for other available servers.
With the default settings, all computers on the same local network (same subnet) can use a license from the server.
If the Clients’ list is empty, anyone on the local network can use a license. If at least one entry is listed here, only the listed entries can request a license.
Note: If the server is public on the Internet, or no one is allowed to use a license, make sure that this list is filled out correctly to avoid unwanted license usage.
