Lumerical FlexNet license manager (FlexLM) uses the the graphical version of the license manager, "lmadmin", which is accessed using the web interface, FlexNet dashboard. This page explains how to use the FlexNet Dashboard to configure the license manager (eg. install license files, enable logging, change the ports, etc). The FlexNet dashboard can be opened from any Internet browser that has accessed to the license server machine on TCP port 8095. The main dashboard page shows the available licenses for checkout.
Accessing the FlexNet dashboard
- On the license server where FlexLM is running, open the link on a browser: http://localhost:8095
- If accessing from a different computer, not the license server machine, open the browser using the link:
http://license_server:8095Where: license_server is the HostName or IP of the machine running FlexLM
- The dashboard shows the list of available license for 'checkout'
FlexNet license manager administration and configuration
To access the administration section, click on the "Administration" link on the upper right corner of the page. Enter the administrator username and password.
Note: If this is the first time you have logged in to the dashboard the default username and password is "admin" for both (without the quotes). We recommend changing the password from the User Configuration tab after your first login.
