3.4. Server Identified by FQDN or IP Address

Applies to:
Palisade network software 6./7.x

Can clients reach our server by FQDN (fully qualified domain name) or IP address?

Yes, these are both compatible with the FLEXnet licensing software.

Edit the INI file, after you create it but before you run the client installer. On the SERVERNAME line of the INI file, change the host name to the desired FQDN or IP address. Be careful to keep the @ sign. If you wish, you can have one Palisade_NetworkClient.ini file for clients that are on your LAN and another for client computers that need to get a license from your server but are not on your LAN.

Don't put an FQDN on the SERVER line of the Server.lic file; that line must always carry either the plain server name or the placeholder this_host.

If a given client is usually on your LAN but occasionally goes off network and needs to run the software, borrowing may be a simpler approach. See Using a Concurrent Network License Off Network (Borrowing).
