Sentinel Hasp Admin Control Center
The Sentinel HASP Admin Control Center enables a system administrator to monitor the following:
1.All the HASP dongles which are currently available on the network, including their identity, type, and location.
2.The number of users currently logged in to a HASP dongle, and the maximum number of users allowed to be simultaneously logged into that specific dongle.
3.The Feature ID (e.g. PipeLay = 30) to which each HASP dongle allows access, and any restrictions that apply to the Feature.
4.The users who are currently logged into a specific HASP dongle, including detailed login information, e.g. Login Time, User, Machine Name etc.
The Admin Control Center (ACC) is installed as part of the Sentinel HASP run-time environment driver installation process and can be launched by typing http://<machine_name or ip_address>:1947 in the address field of a browser (if the license server has been configured to allow Remote Access). If you are accessing the ACC on the server itself then use http://localhost:1947.
When you launch the ACC, the web interface displays a number of Administration Options on the left of the page. The context-sensitive Help document, which forms part of ACC, provides in-depth information on each of these options. Nonetheless some summary points are provided below.
