Set up a local license

Here's how to set up a local license for your copy of infra CONVERT.

The following describes how to make a server license available on your network.

Local licensing vs. server licensing - A license file is issued for a computer specified by the customer. The license file can map a single license (one seat) or a multiple license (two seats and more) for a specific feature set. Licenses are generally multi-user licenses (floating licenses), i.e. the license can be used without being tied to a specific location. If the license file is issued for the computer on which infra CONVERT itself is executed, it is a local license from its point of view. If computers in the network (clients) obtain licenses from this computer (server), it is a server license from their point of view.
See Installation > Server Licensing

Licensing Service - Licensing tasks are handled by ELIAS Licensing Service, a utility. A detailed description can be found in the administrator manual.
See Administrator's Manual > Installation > License service
