Go Up to Configuring the Embarcadero License Center


The IP list file limits IP addresses to ranges; this allows access to the licensing server to be blocked by location. This file is called iplist.txt and is located in the <ELC>\conf directory. If no ranges are listed in the file, no users can access the licensing server. With the default setting, *.*.*.*, anyone using a computer at any location can access the licensing server. This file applies to both named user and concurrent (floating) licensing.

The following tables show examples of valid and invalid entries in the IP list file.

Valid entries in IP List File

Valid Entry Description
192.*.*.* Accepts requests coming from any IP address starting with 192.
192.43.18.* Accepts requests coming from any IP address starting with 192.43.18.

Invalid entries in IP List File

Invalid Entry Description
162.* Incorrect use of asterisks (asterisks are missing, entry should be 162.*.*.*).
162.43.1*.* Incorrect use of asterisks (cannot use an asterisk to split entry, entry should be 162.43.*.*).

The following figure shows an example IP list file, where requests from any IP address are accepted.
