📖HomeBack The licence server provides client-side licensing to clients connecting to Geo SCADA with the client licensing option enabled.
When clients attempt to connect to Geo SCADA they will check the 'Use Client License' checkbox in the connections tool. If checked the client checks first the local Geo SCADA Licence Server process and either be granted a client licence or be refused. If they are granted a licence, they connect to the Geo SCADA server and are able to access the system.
However, if they are refused, the client connection still proceeds to the server but will only be given a licence from the server pool if the server has a free licence.
The licence server provides a log file which can be used to view the allocation and de-allocation of licenses when they happen.
Client side licensing is configured in the Configure Connections applet in the Control Panel. Statistics for licenses currently in-use are also available in the applet.
