Installation of the Network License Option (NLO) is a two-phase process: In Phase 1, you set up the server. In Phase 2, you install and register the client software on each node.
Before Installing Network Licensing Option
If you have a hardware key, please install the hardware key driver before you procced to Step 1.
NLO Step 1 - Setting Up the Server
Before you begin: On the machine where you will install the License Server, you must have administrator privileges. The installer setup file GibbsCAMNLOServer-24.<x>.<y>.<z>.exe must be available.
You can download the Reprise NLO Server software here:
Install and run the Registration Tool
C:\Program Files\GibbsCAM\GibbsCAM NLO Server 2024\RegistrationTool.exe
Enter your product code and select "Next"
Complete the contact information and select "Next".
Make sure it creates a new ".lic" file in your deployment directory.
C:\Program Files\GibbsCAM\GibbsCAM NLO Server 2024
The RLM Web Server Portal
You can verify that the service is running correctly on the server through the Reprise License Server Administration page which your server will be hosting. The address for that is:
If it is not running you can try clicking the "Reread/Restart" button on the left panel. You can also try restarting the service through the Windows services list by going to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services. The service will be named either "GibbsRLMServer" or Reprise License Server".
Use RLM Across A Firewall
If you want to serve licenses across a firewall, generally you will need the license servers to have known port numbers in order to allow your firewall to pass requests on these ports. The RLM server itself is always at a known port number: Host line "2764" and ISV "2765".
NLO Step 2 - Install the Client Software On Each Node
Before you begin: Make sure the license server machine is running the GibbsRLMServer service and that the client machine (workstation) has a network connection to it.
1. On the client machine (workstation), install the GibbsCAM software, using the same product code that was used for installing the server.
2. Register GibbsCAM for this client workstation. You can do this manually at any time by running the Registration Tool. Or, if you launch GibbsCAM, it will display the License Installation dialog to prompt you for the product code. Use the same product code that was used for the server. On NLO client machines, you are not be prompted for contact information.
3. After you enter the product code, click Activate Product to complete the license deployment. The license data will be retrieved from the Gibbs Activation Service and placed in the appropriate Activation Data folder.
4. Repeat the previous steps (installing the GibbsCAM software and registering the product code) for each GibbsCAM client of the license server machine.
