Download Oxygen HTTP License Server

When do you need to use the license server?

  • Use of license server is required if you use floating licenses.
  • Use of license server is recommended if you use many user based licenses (e.g. 20+ user based licenses).

Benefits of using a license server

The benefit of using the license server is that you have access to the License Server Management and Statistics Pages that provide access to several statistics reports and various management tasks.

License server documentation

In the Oxygen user manual, you can read how to set-up the license sever and how an Oxygen instance requests a floating license from the license server.

Note that the license key requires activation. This process is designed to help you comply with the Oxygen End User License Agreement. This means that the license key will be locked to a particular license server deployment, and the same license key cannot be used with any other license server.

Instructions:

Install

  • You need to have Administrator rights on your computer in order to complete the installation process.
  • Run the installation program and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • During the installation you need to configure
    • Administrator credentials - Used for accessing the license server administrative interface.
    • Standard user credentials - Used by Oxygen applications to connect to the license server.
    • Server port - the TCP port that the license server uses for both the web interface and serving licenses (default 8080).
  • At the end of the installation process, you will be instructed to complete the license server setup in a web browser.

Register/activate the license key

  • Open the license server web management page (click the link available in the Finish page from the installer). e.g. http://localhost:8080/oXygenLicenseServlet/index.jsp
  • You will be prompted to enter the "Administrator credentials" to log on.
  • The web interface will ask you to paste the license key for activation. Use the license key you have received at the time of purchase.
  • IMPORTANT: When activated, the license key will be bound to the machine signature of the license server. The key can only be activated once, on a single license server. The machine signature is calculated from the network interfaces of the machine, server installation folder and server port. If any of these change after license key activation, the machine signature also changes which in turn breaks the the license key activation and licenses are no longer being delivered.

Allow access through the Windows firewall

  • Go to Windows Security > Firewall and network protection > Allow an app through firewall. Check if "oXygen Floating License Server" is already in the list. If it isn't, press "Allow another app..." and browse for the file oXygenHTTPLicenseServer.exe from the "Windows Service" folder in the installation folder. Check the appropriate boxes (Domain/Private/Public) depending on your network.

Uninstall

  • Run the oXygen HTTP License Server Uninstaller from the Start Menu or uninstall.exe from the installation folder.

OS Requirements

  • The supported operating systems are: Windows 8.1 64-bit, Windows 10 64-bit, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019.
  • Incoming connections to the Oxygen HTTP License Server TCP port (default 8080) should be allowed in the OS firewall.

Machine requirements:

  • The system requirements for the Oxygen HTTP License Server are 256MB available system memory and 1 CPU core. Note that the OS also has its own minimum requirements that should be taken under consideration.
  • The machine signature used for activating the license key is calculated from the network interfaces of the machine, server installation folder and server port. None of these should change after activating the license key.
  • An important requirement is that the network interfaces must remain unchanged (do not add/remove/modify any NICs) after activating the floating license key. Note that this doesn't prevent you from changing the IP address.
  • When installing Oxygen HTTP License Server in a virtual machine environment, make sure the virtual machine is configured to use static MAC addresses, before activating the license key.
  • Make sure you pick a TCP port (default is 8080) that you won't have to change, before activating the license key.

Instructions:

Install

  • Note: JAVA_HOME environment variable should point to a Java distribution with a minimum version of 1.8.
  • Unzip the downloaded archive.
  • Run the licenseServer.sh script (or licenseServer.bat for Windows) and provide the TCP port as argument (default is 8080).
  • On the first run, you will be required to configure
    • Administrator credentials - Used for accessing the license server administrative interface.
    • Standard user credentials - Used by Oxygen applications to connect to the license server.
  • After the server has started, you will be instructed in the console messages to proceed to the license server web page (e.g. http://localhost:8080/) and complete the license server setup.

Register/activate the license key

  • Open the license server web management page (click the link available in the Finish page from the installer). e.g. http://localhost:8080/oXygenLicenseServlet/index.jsp
