This section of
conf/texis.ini controls license updates
applied via the Vortex
<vxcp applylicense> function (e.g. the
Webinator admin GUI) to the monitor schedule server. See also the
settings in the
[Scheduler] section, which control the schedule
SYSUSERStable to authenticate Vortex
<vxcp applylicense>requests against. This is typically set to
webinatorby the Texis/Webinator installer, when it creates the GUI admin account. The password provided in
applylicenserequests will be verified against this user's password hash in
SYSUSERSbefore applying the requested license. The default User is unset, which disables applying license updates via
<vxcp applylicense>, i.e. updates must be done manually by copying to the
license.updfile in the install dir and running texis -update. Added in version 6.
applylicenserequests must contain a password. Note that even if this is 0 (no password required), if the User account has a password, it still must be provided in the
applylicenserequest and match. Added in version 6.
applylicenserequests must be made securely (i.e. via SSL). Added in version 6.
applylicenserequests must be made from this network. E.g. setting 192.168.0.0/16 would only allow requests from that network. Note that the schedule server is typically bound to 127.0.0.1 (local host) only (see Listen here), so requests are by default only accessible from the local machine anyway. Added in version 6.
<vxcp applylicense>replies. If bit 1 is set, use shorter messages in monitor.log, especially for rejected license update attempts. Enabling this can increase the difficulty of debugging problems. Added in version 6.
