Licensing overview

Licenses that are added to Radmin Server are automatically activated. The activation process can be performed online, manually from our Internet site or by contacting our sales department. Online activation requires an active Internet connection which will allow HTTP requests from Radmin Server to Famatech Activation Server. The license code can be added directly to Radmin Server or transferred to it from any Radmin Viewer.

Radmin note Licensing Radmin During activation Radmin Server will generate a hardware ID of the computer it is installed on. This hardware ID is based on the computer’s hardware components (motherboard, processor, etc). This ID will be sent to Famatech Activation Server along with the specified license code, and an activated license will be returned that allows Radmin Server to be used only on the computer with the corresponding hardware ID.

Radmin note Licensing RadminSignificant changes to the computer’s hardware configuration will change its hardware ID, which may force Radmin Server to suggest that the computer is different from the one the program was licensed to run on. Complete information about safe computer modifications and license re-acquiring after significant upgrades can be found at our website: www.radmin.com.

Two types of licenses are available:

  • Product License

    Permits activation and use of Radmin Server. One license of this type should be added to Radmin Server in order to use it. This license can include multiple connections.

  • Additional Connections License

    Increases the maximum number of allowed simultaneous incoming connections. Licenses of this type can be added to the Radmin Server in order to increase the number of users who can connect to it.

    Radmin warn Licensing RadminThis license is not valid if there is no Product License already added to the Radmin Server.
