Specify the license file location and click Next. Network license files are located in c:\ProgramData\Nanosoft\LicServSetup\Licenses\ folder by default.


The License file will be added to License Server. The Server will be restarted automatically.

Remote connection to License Server

There is a possibility to connect to remote License Server through the Internet. To do this, you need to forward the port of the License Server (standard port 27000), so that it is available for connection from the global network and has a public (permanent) IP address on the computer where the License Server is installed. In this case, you can connect to the License Server from any computer that has Internet access. To connect to the License Server configured for Internet connections, you will need to specify not only the external IP address in the Registration Wizard but also the port, using the @ symbol, for example, 27000@external_ip.
