Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
This guide will explain how to configure a client machine to request and use a (concurrent or floating) license from a DSLS license server.
Note: The folder ‘ProgramData’ is normally a hidden folder. You can type that piece into the address bar OR un-hide the folder.
Note: If the ‘Licenses’ folder does not exist, browse to C:\ProgramData\DassaultSystemes and create a ‘New Folder’ called ‘Licenses’ as shown below:
Note: If the ‘DSLicSrv.txt’ text file does not exist, create a ‘Text Document’ called ‘DSLicSrv’ as shown in the pictures below: –
Caution: Ensure you do not finish up with a doubled-up file extension. The file MUST be called DSLicSrv.txt and NOT DSLicSrv.txt.txt It is suggested you have ‘display of file extensions’ activated to spot this error.
Note: The ServerName should be entered exactly as it is named.
The licensing port number by default is 4085, so please use 4085 (Unless this was changed during DSLS installation). e.g. If the License server is called ‘server_1’ the text file should have a line server_1:4085 .
Also note: If the DSLS license server is the same PC as the license client i.e. server and client on the same PC, you may use the name localhost e.g. localhost:4085
Note: If there is an additional server, e.g. server_2, simply enter it in the next line.
