Floating license activation

To setup a floating license on a network, two steps must be completed:

1. Install RLM-Server software on a license server and activate the license

2. Install Coreform Cubit on individual network computers and indicate the license server IP address

Already have RLM on your server? If you already are using RLM on your server, you can simply use the csimsoft.set file and your license file.

Install and activate RLM-Server

To activate a floating license of Coreform Cubit on a network:

  1. Download RLM-Server and install it on the computer that will be the network license server.

  2. Use your product key to activate the floating license. This can be done in two ways:

    • Via the activation dialog
      • Open a command prompt or terminal window and navigate to the RLM-Server folder.
      • Run rlm_activate to open the RLM Activation window.
      • Enter your product key and hostname in the appropriate fields and click the “Activate” button.
    • Via terminal only
      • From a terminal run as administrator: .\rlm_activate --activate <product_key> <hostname>, where <product_key> is the product key for the license and <hostname> is the name of the server.

  3. In either case, the hostname is optional, but will identify the server in your list of licenses in your account’s My Licenses area.)

    • Click Reread/Restart Servers from left sidebar.
    • Check that the Coreform ISV server is running by clicking Status.

  2. Launch Coreform Cubit.

  3. In the Product Activation window, select Floating: Connect to a license server.

  4. Enter the hostname or IP address of the license server where RLM-Server is located. The default port number is 5053. (See RLM-Server Installation Instructions for information about changing the port.)

Note: Network installation requires a floating license of Coreform Cubit. A network product key is used to activate the RLM-Server software. Do not use the network product key to activate Coreform Cubit on the client computer.

If you get an error message during installation, please see Coreform Cubit FAQs for possible solutions. If you have any questions about activating your software, please contact Coreform support.
