13.1. Configuring the license

If you are running sFlowTrend-Pro as a service, then the license must be configured before use. If you are running as an application, then the license cannot be configured (but the license dialog can still be used to view the expiry date, or any problems with the license).

Select the FileLicense menu item to launch the license dialog. The first time you run sFlowTrend-Pro as a service, this dialog should launch automatically.

Enter the license number for your sFlowTrend-Pro license (starts with "SFT...") in the License number field, then press the Set license button to configure the license on the server. If there is any problem with the license number you provided, this should be reported, allowing the correct number to be entered. Otherwise, if the license is accepted, the dialog will close and sFlowTrend-Pro will continue with the new license.

sFlowTrend-Pro will use the license number entered to download the actual license key from the Internet. If the server requires a proxy connection for Internet access, please ensure that this is correctly configured (see Section 13.5.4, “Proxy configuration ). If the system has no Internet connectivity at all, then the full license key can be entered manually. To get the key, please submit a support request at http://www.myinmon.com. Then click Advanced on the license dialog, and a field for the key will be shown. You can paste the key into the field using the Ctrl-v key. After pressing the Set license button, the new license from the key will be used.
