VRay Online License Server 4.3.1
show user profile  9krausec
Has anyone actually got this to work correctly? As in, they have their dongles plugged into a license server 4.3.1 and are able to access their seats of Vray/Phoenix through the internet? Completely apart from being in the local area network that the license server is in or VPN'ing into the local network?

Cheers! Having some big ol' problems of my own over here getting this thing to work right with Vray 3.5 which should now be compatible.

(on a Centos 6.5 linux box fyi)

Here's some information on using online license manager 4.3.1

If you did not make the recent purchase of Vray 3.5 then you are most likely a longer term dongle user for licensing. Although the Online License Manager can be used in the same way as the conventional license manager (older version), the online functionality of it cannot be used.. yet.

Chaosgroup is in the middle of developing a migration tool that will allow dongle license holders the ability to shift their dongle license unto the online license system (which from where I'm standing it looks to be more flexible).

I guess I got caught up in the Online license manager interface not showing the license as available. I'm also unable to access the "" license page, BUT it seems to still be working.

Just wanted to update here if anyone else was experiencing the same sort of thing. Cheers.

Ah cool,
Kindof in the same spot as you, we have a dongle here with our x amount of phoenix and vray licenses. This would make it possible to work from home without doing the vpn thing i guess?

After they get the migration tool done, yes it sounds like it!

I think I was just totally thrown off by not having access to the "getstatus" of license thing through the browser. All seems to be working though now!

4 days into learning linux. Have CentOS installed on 5 slaves and 1 host repository/license server. License is working fine, Deadline is communicating (had to setup a share for the repository on linux), now I just need to add write permissions to the repository and all should start working today (I hope).

5 days to setup a Linux renderfarm while learning Linux for the first time, I'm happy with those numbers.

Linux is super great, but it just seems annoying to have to actually have background knowledge to run an OS. I'd rather have it be simple (Windows) and be able to put the effort into running my production software.

That being said I might switch to Mint eventually and finally man up.

Random blurb over.
