License Server in the cloud

Requesting and activating a trial license for a CLI product is sometimes too cumbersome, especially when it comes to putting the license PDF and the activation PDF from a local Desktop system to a remote Linux system using ssh. 

To simplify this, there is now License Server in the cloud.

How to

  • A customer requests a trial code for a CLI product

  • A callas support employee responds  with a time limited session key and the IP of a licenseServer in the cloud (via email)

  • The customer uses the licenseserver and lsmessage options to run the CLI as shown below:

./pdfToolbox --extracticcprofiles 'doc/callas pdfToolbox CLI.pdf' --licenseserver= --lsmessage=<keycode>
