RLM v16.0 (BL1) – Release Date May 16, 2024

This update adds an all-new web management interface to the on-premises license server.

 

It also fixes multiple vulnerabilities related to the web interface.

 

Important notes: 

  • Starting in v16.0 the rlm.pw file is no longer used for access control. New access roles have been created.

  • Activation URL incorrectly shortened when using RLM web UI to activate a license.
  • Cookie issues with Safari browser.

To install:

  • Unix/Mac: download, gunzip the kit, tar xf, then run INSTALL. See README above. (If your browser gunzipped the file during transfer, you should skip the gunzip step). Note arm64_m2 does not have Java support.
  • Windows: download, execute the installer, then run “nmake” in the binary directory (x86_w4, x64_w4, x86_w3, or x64_w3).

 

Java:

  • Java for Unix (java_unix.tar.gz) (RLM has java support only on the following Unix platforms: x86_l2, x64_l1, x86_m1, and x64_m1. Windows kits include the Java interface.)

RLM and RLM
Activation Pro

What’s the difference?

Reprise License Manager (RLM)

Software License Manager

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

As a Software publisher, you integrate RLM into your product, and RLM keeps track at runtime of who is using the licenses of your software.

RLM can do this entirely within the client library (linked into your application), or, more commonly, your application makes a request of the RLM Lincese Server to check out a license.

The lincese server runs either on your customers network, or in the cloud if you are using our RLMCloud™ service.

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

RLM Activation Pro

Software Activation Manager

Activation Pro is
used once when your customer purchases your software in order to retrieve the license which is specific to that customer.

Software Activation’s purpose in life is to get the licenses for your product to your customers with a minimum of fuss.

Activation Pro also has a server component wich we call the activation server.

Your application contacts the activation server and supplies a short text activation key, and in exchange, the activation server returns the license which enables your product.

Generally, this is done once, right after your customer purchases your software, not every time your software is invoked.
