Before You Start...

Before you can use the FlexNet License, you must download, install, configure and start the FlexNet Publisher.

Ensure that you (or an administrator):

  • Verified that the file server has (or can be assigned) a fixed MAC address. FlexNet tools support locking floating licenses only to the network MAC address, and do not support any other hostid mechanisms. To operate a FlexNet Publisher, ensure that the machine has a stable MAC address permanently assigned to it, and that FlexNet utilities can detect the MAC address.
  • Can connect to the chosen file server via Remote Desktop Connection or equivalent program.
  • Have administration privileges to logon to the file server.

Verify this by running the Windows Remote Desktop Connection program (Start - Accessories - Remote Desktop Connection). Enter the name of the file server and your logon credentials. If your logon is not successful, then contact your IT department.


  • The chapters focus on Windows-based operating systems. For other operating system, please read the FNP_LicAdmin.pdf located in the folder root\UV4\FlexNet of your installation.
