Assigning a Network License to a Client Computer Not Attached to the Server


If you have a network license server and are using license keys that you type, and not a dongle, you can detach a license and temporarily bind it to a client computer so that that FARO software can be used when the client computer is not attached to the network. When the detached license expires, it is automatically disabled on the client computer and restored to the server.

The license server and the client computer must be configured to allow detaching of network licenses.

Enable Client Computers and the Server to Detach Licenses

Keep in mind that when you detach the license you must select the computer found and shown in the list, see attachment. If the computer is not found follow these directions.

  1. On the client computer, open a browser and go to http://localhost:1947. This opens the SafeNet Admin Control Center.
