LICENSING | CNCNETPDM MANUAL

Without a license number initially this is a demo license for an unlimited number of devices. This is ideal for testing. The ONLY limitation of this license type is that device drivers output a restricted number of configured items.

Information about your license is stored in file log_master_YYMMDD.txt in the log directory of CNCnetPDM. In addition entry License = Your license number is created in section [GENERAL] of configuration file CNCnetPDM.ini

There are 3 possible licensing options for CNCnetPDM:
