Overview

Please make sure that you download the latest copy of OLI software. Please go to the following section to view tutorials for downloads : Downloading OLI software

This is an example for downloading and installing the OLI Software using the OLI Remote License Server.

OLI Remote License Server Concepts

Why it was created

The OLI Remote License Server was created to allow users to have access to the OLI Software when hosting the license manager is not possible. Such situations are (but are not limited to):

  • Failure of the local host computer that has the OLI License Manager Installed
  • Driver failure for either the hardlock or softkey security device (for both stand-alone and network installations)
  • Trail software on virtual computers (or guest operating systems on the macOS or LINUX operating systems)
  • Users who found themselves disconnected from their host networks

Requirements

The only requirement is that you must have a connection to the internet

Firewall Issues

Sometimes your firewall will block an outbound connection (that is from your computer to our server.) If that occurs a common remedy is to create an outbound rule in your firewall. Here is a link from Microsoft on how to do that:
