COMSOL licence server details #
In this step, we will consider two of the most common of the possible many options for licence server configuration. If you have opted for a different licence server hosting system, please follow the information given to you by your IT department or by the Kaleidosim support staff.
Licence server hosted by Kaleidosim #
If your licence server for your organization is being hosted by Kaleidosim, you do not need to configure anything you will be able to see a pre-configured licence server listed here: https://comsol.app.kaleidosim.com/licenseServer
If you are sure your organization has a licence server being hosted by Kaleidosim, but you do not have any servers listed, please contact your organization owner to have the COMSOL licence server enabled for your user. If you are the organization owner, please contact [email protected] for assistance.
Licence server connection using SSH RSA key #
Another licence server configuration is where the licence server is accessible via an SSH key. Normally in this situation, your IT department will be hosting your licence server, mostly likely in a DMZ of your corporate network.
Things your IT department should provide you with:
- The domain name (or external IP address) of the licence server
- An ssh, a connection string that your server needs (including port forwards)
- RSA key
You will need to enter this information into the Kaleidosim system as follows:
- Login to the Kaleidosim system https://app.kaleidosim.com/
- Click Licence manager > Licence servers in the menu
- Click the Add Licence Server button
Add Licence Server #
Fill in the required information, you can configure the licence server name to be something memorable to you.
NOTE: for the SSH command, you do not need to prefix your command with “ssh” or add anything to do with your ssh key (“-i” option). The Kaleidosim system will handle this for you. E.g. if your ssh command locally would be.
ssh -i ./.ssh/id_rsa [email protected] -L26121:localhost:26121
You should set this value to be.
[email protected] -L26121:localhost:26121
When you are successful, you should see your licence server listed in the Licence Server table.
