Setting access code for license

Some development teams may involve more than one work groups. Access control is a technique to avoid excessive access of license keys by a group. Think about if group A and B both acquire licenses from the same VP Server, group A may use up all the keys, leaving no available license for group B, when there is no control. Access control solves this problem by enforcing the need of supplying a valid password when trying to acquiring license from server by client. Other than this, access control prevents the licenses from unauthorized access, which increases the level of security as well.

  1. Open a web browser.
  2. Visit the VP Server URL and login as administrator. Note that the login ID of the default server administrator is Admin.
