To obtain a client-based license from the PATHWORKS/Advanced Server License Server, the client computer must be running the software for license acquisition - the client licensing software. This software enables the client computer to request and store license information for access to the file server. If server-based licensing is being used, the client licensing software is not needed.
PC systems that are running
PATHWORKS 32 software might already
have the client licensing software. The software is installed as part of
the default installation.
» More Info
For PC systems that are not running PATHWORKS 32 client software, you can obtain the client licensing software from the PWLICENSE share that is created when the PATHWORKS/Advanced Server software kit is installed and configured. This is the preferred source, because the client licensing software obtained from there will request a license appropriate for accessing the current Advanced Server. You will not have to update the default license name.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems can obtain client license software from the latest PATHWORKS 32 distribution kit.
For a client to access the PWLICENSE share and install the client licensing software, server-based licensing must be enabled or else the client must first obtain a client-based license.
software is intended for customers
who use the network connectivity options available in the Microsoft
Windows environment and who have purchased licenses for connecting to
PATHWORKS/Advanced Server servers.
