To install Lasergene on a network:

Network installation involves two stages: installing the license server on host computer, and installing Lasergene on the client computers.

Part A: License server installation:

On the computer designated to run the Lasergene license server:

  1. Log in to your DNASTAR account and go to the My Licenses page. Click the appropriate Network Server button (Server for Mac OS X, Server for Windows) to download the installer.

  1. Run the installer, following the instructions on each screen. If the server machine uses a firewall, follow the instructions in Handle a firewall on the license server machine. After the installation finishes, you may be asked to enter a product key for authorization. This key can be found on the My Account page.
  1. Once authorized, a new LasergeneClient’x’ folder (where ‘x’ is the version number) will be placed on your server’s desktop. This folder contains:

    • A file named IP Address [x.x.x.x].txt – The IP address will be needed to activate Lasergene on the client computers.

    • Several *.lshost files – Needed for advanced installations.

    • An HTML file – Instructions for client installation.


Part B: Client installation:

On each of the computers that will be running Lasergene:

  1. Log in to your DNASTAR account and go to the My Licenses page. Press the appropriate button to download the client installer (Lasergene for Windows, Lasergene for Mac OS X).

  1. Run the client installer, following the instructions on each screen. When prompted, choose Network, and type in the IP address for the license server machine. (see section above).
