An optional module, which you may find useful as a user of PipeLay Network Licensing, is the Aladdin NetHASP Monitor. This software allows you to browse all the NetHASP hardware dongles on your network (not just the Wood Group ones). You may then see how many licenses are currently available for any particular product and which machines currently have product licences issued to them.

To install this software, simply run AKSMON32.EXE from the EXTRAS\MONITOR folder on the PipeLay installation CD-ROM and follow the on-screen instructions. A shortcut to the program will then appear in the Windows™ Start Menu, as shown in the figure below.

In the bar on left-hand-side of the program, we open the NetHASP LM folder. In this example there is only one entry here, for the server called SRV_01, which we select. You should choose the entry which corresponds to the server your PipeLay network dongle is attached to.

Under the server entry, it is possible that there may be several dongles listed. However, normally there will be just one. If there is more than one, you may have to ask your system department for assistance in identifying which is the PipeLay dongle. Here there is only one entry, HASP #1, and we select that.

On the right-hand-side of the program, the information for this dongle is shown. We can see that only Program 30 (PipeLay) is listed and that one of its licences (1) is allocated. This licence is currently in use at the computer called WORKSTATION_1. See the table below for a full list of Wood Group program numbers and the numbers of their corresponding modules.

It is worth noting that other programs for which you are licensed, if unlisted, have, by implication, all their licences available.
