Setting up a network connection

  1. To set up a network connection, use the following file
    %programfiles%\Common Files\ABBYY\FineReader\14.00\Licensing\Licensing.ini
    This file is located on the computer where the License Server is installed.
  2. In the above file, change the desired parameters:
    • Connection protocol
      See Setting up the connection protocol for details.
    • Connection port
      See Setting up the connection port for details.

      E.g.:
      [Licensing]
      ConnectionProtocolType=TCP\IP
      ConnectionEndpointName=81

      Note: Make sure that your firewall does not prevent %programfiles%\Common Files\ABBYY\FineReader\14.00\Licensing\NetworkLicenseServer.exe from accessing the specified port.
  3. Copy the file Licensing.ini:
    • To the License Manager folder on all the computers where the License Manager has been installed (by default, the License Manager is installed into %programfiles%\ABBYY FineReader 14 License Server)
    • To the administrative installation folder where FineReader.exe is located,
      e.g. \\MyFileServer\Distribs\ABBYY FineReader 14.
      Important! For the changes to take effect, you must restart the ABBYY FineReader 14 Licensing Service
  4. Install ABBYY FineReader on the workstations.
    For detailed instructions, see Installing ABBYY FineReader 14 on Workstations.
