Help with licensing

The License Help section of the Support Portal contains lots of useful information about licensing and what to do if you encounter a problem. If you cannot find the information you are looking for then please raise a support ticket through the Support Portal to contact the Support team.

Licensing tools

These tools are used to install licenses, diagnose problems and manage floating licenses across a network. Please refer to the License Help section of the Support Portal for instructions on how to get up and running with your licenses

Foundry License Utility (FLU)

Use this utility to find a machine's system ID, install license keys or diagnose license issues. For issues relating to these things you can find answers in the licensing help section of our Support Portal.

Please note: If you have already installed the Foundry License Tools (FLT) 7.0 or later on your license server, the FLU will also have been installed on that machine.

Foundry License Tools (FLT)

In order to use a floating license for products, you need to install Foundry License Tools (FLT) on your license server. Do not install these on client machines. 

The FLT also contains a copy of the Foundry License Utility (FLU) and relevant license documentation. Once the Foundry License Tools are installed, the FLU will display additional tabs to allow you to control your RLM license server. More information about this can be accessed via the Foundry Support Portal

Note: We do not recommend using a mobile server, like a laptop, that doesn't meet the following criteria: 

1. Static IP
2. Static Hostname
3. 'Always on' status so clients can connect to the server over a LAN
4. DNS enabled

Problems will occur if you choose to use a MacBook Pro as a server, as it will not meet criteria point 2 above, and it will change hostname constantly when plugged into different networks.  This will need to be resolved by your Network or Systems team to resolve any hostname resolution issues that are found.
