This page gives details on how to use a USB dongle in conjunction with the online licensing system.


The Online Licensing system allows you to use seats associated with your Chaos Group account easily from anywhere you can log in to over the internet. If you also have a Chaos Group USB License dongle attached to your workstation/server, you can utilize those available licenses within the online system.

Note that there might be some delays in detecting a dongle when it is plugged in. If however a dongle is not recognized at all by the system after plugging it in, try disabling and re-enabling the dongle subsystem.

The license server page can be accessed via the Manage Phoenix FD Online License Server tool installed with the rest of your Application shortcuts (e.g. Windows Start Menu), which will direct you to http://localhost:30304/



Enabling your Dongle Licenses

You can Enable your USB dongle from the Dongle drop down menu by clicking on the Enable button.




Once your USB dongle is enabled you will be able to see your dongle information.




If you need to upgrade your dongle please click the Upgrade and follow the instructions found on the Dongle Reprogramming page.
