Your license number is issued for both your fully qualified host name AND your IP Address which you specified to CompuSource. You can change either one providing that one of them still holds true, without invalidating your license.
PowerWeb Server++ can be run on any server with the fully qualified host name that you registered, regardless of its IP Address.
PowerWeb Server++ can be run on any server with the IP Address that you registered, regardless of its host name.
Example 1: Changing IP Addresses or Host Names
A network administrator can move the server to a different subnet, thereby changing its IP Address, but keeping the host name the same. PowerWeb Server++ will continue to run on the same license number, because the host name has not changed.
Example 2: Development and Production Machines
The registration licensing method enables developers to set up a server on a local machine and then transfer it into production on another machine.
This is achieved through the developer using a machine running the server with the "-local" command line switch for development, testing and demonstration and using another machine with the licensed host name and IP address for final delivery.
|Configuration||Server IP Address||Fully Qualified Host Name|
The local loopback IP Address 127.0.0.1 and the host name "localhost" is automatically configured when you want to use the server on a standalone machine, or if you have a dynamic SLIP or PPP IP Address assigned by your Internet Service Provider.
You will need to install the server with a "-local" command line switch - see the "Readme.Txt" in the OS2WWWxx.ZIP file for more information.
For this situation, you should fill in the Test Drive fields as follows:
IP Address 127.0.0.1 Host Name and Domain localhost Mail Address Your normal e-mail address
You should license PowerWeb Server++ for the IP Address of the primary LAN adapter of the machine on which the server will run. This will enable all users on the Internet to access your server.
You should license PowerWeb Server++ for the IP Address of the primary LAN adapter of the machine on which the server will run. This will enable all users on your private sub-network to access your server.
Note for Network Administrators: it is advisable to allocate IP addresses on your internal LAN according to the specifications of RFC1597 to avoid any potential conflict with the Internet.
If you do not know your primary IP address, run "Install -d" which will display information about your system (it will not actually perform an installation). The IP address and host name that it lists is the one that you should use to register your server.
