1) Move the license server files in an install folder on the host server computer.
2) Do one of the following:
- If on a 32bit OS, rename the file TurboFloatServer.exe.x86 to TurboFloatServer.exe.
- If on a 64bit OS, rename the file TurboFloatServer.exe.x64 to TurboFloatServer.exe.
3) Modify the file TurboFloatServer-config.xml to include a unique TCP communication port under the <bind port> attribute.
4) Activate and install the license server:
- Edit the file ActivateTFSServer.bat to add your product key next to TurboFloatServer.exe.
- Open a CMD window with Run as administrator.
- Run the file ActivateTFSServer.bat, then run the file InstallTFSServer.bat.
- If successful, the floating license server should be active and ready for client connections.
5) Configure the IATA Application on client machines:
- Run the client setup on each client machine. The installer is found in the Client.setup folder.
- From the Client.files folder found on the license server, edit the config.ini file and set the values required for clients to communicate with the license server:
- UseFLS = true
- FLSIP = IP address or FQDN of the license server
- FLSPort = TCP port that matches the <bind port> value in TurboFloatServer-config.xml
- FLSKey = The Floating License product key
- FLSTimeout = # (number of minutes of inactivity after which the “seat” will be released)
- Copy the modified config.ini file to the product install folder of each client machine.
6) Configure the firewall or other security layers between the server and the client:
- Make sure the port specified in both TurboFloatServer-config.xml and the client’s config.ini files is open to allow TCP protocol communication.
