i) If you have not done so already, install the Kaleidosim cloudCompanion for COMSOL app following these instructions.
ii) If you have not done so already, please contact Kaleidosim support so that we can allocate a tunnel server for you. The Kaleidosim licenseConnect App will not function for you until this step is done.

Configure the Kaleidosim cloudCompanion for COMSOL #
Start the Kaleidosim cloudCompanion for COMSOL (which you should have installed as a prerequisite to this workflow). Login to the cloudCompanion if required. Once it logs in and shows the main page click on the license server option on the bottom of the page.
Select the licenseConnect Server (1) as seen in the image below.
Set the license server port to 1719 (2) as seen in the image below.
Configure the licenseConnect app #
Start licenseConnect app and login with your cloudCompanion credentials which you should have obtained by creating a Kaleidosim cloudCompanion for COMSOL account here.
LicenseConnect app will download some configuration items from the Kaleidosim servers, and then prompt you to configure the ip address / domain name (1) and port (2) of your COMSOL license server. See image below.
If you are unsure of the license server port please use 1719.
You can update this information at any time from the settings menu item.
When the licenseConnect app is correctly configured and is able to communicate with the Kaleidosim servers and your COMSOL license server you should see two green indicators on the display. See image below.
Once this is achieved we recommend running a small simulation in the cloud to validate the system is configured correctly.
When license queries are received the License queries number (see image above) will increment.
