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:
  1. UseFLS = true
  2. FLSIP = IP address or FQDN of the license server
  3. FLSPort = TCP port that matches the <bind port> value in TurboFloatServer-config.xml
  4. FLSKey = The Floating License product key
  5. 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.
