A network license is linked to the hardware signature of the server on which the NetKey License Server is installed and running, and on which the license key is activated. The license key holds information of the maximum simultaneous users allowed and if roaming is available. A network license can be transferred to a different server. Installation of the licensed application on user computers must include the IP address or hostname of the server and the port number the NetKey License Server is listening on. This data is stored in file 'Netkey.ini' on the users' computer, located in the installation folder of the licensed application. You may receive a Windows Defender SmartScreen pop-up when starting the batch files, warning you of an unrecognized app. Click ‘Run anyway' to continue. You may receive a Windows Defender Firewall pop-up when starting the License Tool. Click ‘Allow access' to continue, as our Licensing server needs to be contacted.

The license will be linked to the hardware signature of the server. An Activation Key is required. Internet connection is required.
