Get, upload, and assign a license

This section describes how to:


Get a free 30-day evaluation license via Altova LicenseServer,

Upload the received license to the license pool of Altova LicenseServer, and

Assign the license to the Altova product.


The uploading and assigning of a paid license is done in the same way as for the evaluation license described below.


Note:The procedure given below describes the licensing of MobileTogether Server. The same procedure applies also to the licensing of StyleVision Server.



Get a free evaluation license

After you have powered on the virtual machine, get an evaluation license and assign it as follows:


1.In a web browser window (on your main machine, not on the VM), open the web interface of the Altova LicenseServer that is installed on your VM by entering the following URL: http://<vm-ipaddress>:8088. (The IP address of the VM is displayed when the VM is powered on. Also see Important Information.) The License Server login page is displayed (screenshot below).


2.Enter the initial password default to log in. (You can change the password later in the Settings tab.)

3.Go to the Client Management tab (screenshot below). You will see that MobileTogether Server and StyleVision Server are registered with License Server, but that they are not licensed.

Click to expand/collapse

4.In the right-hand pane click Request evaluation licenses for server products (see screenshot above). The Request Evaluation Licenses dialog (screenshot below) appears.

Click to expand/collapse

5.Enter the requested information and click Request Evaluation Licenses.

6.The requested evaluation licenses will be sent to the email address you entered. Save the licenses to a file location.



Upload licenses to the license pool of License Server

After saving the licenses to an accessible location on your network, upload the licenses to the license pool of License Server as follows:


1.In the License Server interface, go to the License Pool tab (see first two screenshots of this section, above).

2.At the bottom of the License Pool tab, click the Browse button of the Upload License File field.


3.Browse and select the license files that you received by email, and click Upload. The licenses will now be available in the License Pool.



Assign a license

Assign licenses from the license pool as described below for MobileTogether Server:


1.Go to the Client Management tab. Click the client in the left pane to display the MobileTogether Server that is registered for this client.

2.If MobileTogether Server is installed on a Linux or macOS machine and you have not yet accepted the MobileTogether Server license, then the MobileTogether Server entry in the right-hand pane will contain a button for accepting the license. Accept the license now.

3.In the right-hand pane, click Edit Assigned Licenses (marked in red in the screenshot below).


4.In the Edit Assigned Licenses dialog that appears (screenshot below), the MobileTogether Server license (that was uploaded to the license pool) will be displayed. Select it and click Apply Changes. The license will be assigned.


5.If MobileTogether Server is unlicensed for a certain period of time, it shuts down, and needs to be restarted. So, after licensing MobileTogether Server, it is best to restart it. Do this by entering sudo systemctl start mobiletogetherserver on the command line of the VM (see Important Information for additional information).
