CAM Lab - installing on a network

Install seeNC Mill, seeNC Turn, CAPSmill and CAPSturn - on all PCs that you want to use them on.


2. Install the dongle driver

OR
- Double click on Setup.exe in the appropriate Dongle folder in the CD.

3. Insert the Hardware License key (USB dongle)

4. Enter the IP address of the license server, on all PCs
---------------------------------------------------------
- In each system where the software is installed, go to the folder where the software is installed and open the file "LicenseServer.dat".
- Replace the text "no-net" with the IP address of the system where the hardware license key is inserted (see example below).

- On the server, go to the folder where the software is installed and open the file "LicenseServer.dat".
