XLSTAT offers concurrent licenses. These are network licenses and can be installed on a server / client network. For more information on what is the concurrent license, please refer to this guide.
This tutorial explains how to connect to such a license server using your XLSTAT software.
You can download XLSTAT on the Free Trial page of our website. Please fill in the form and click on the appropriate download button.
This guide requires that the Server part of the network concurrent license has been previously installed on a central server by an administrator of your organisation. If this is what you are trying to perform, please refer to the XLSTAT Server installation guide.
For the simple usage of XLSTAT, the IP-address or the hostname of the server needs to be provided to you by your administrator as it will be required to connect XLSTAT to it.
Installation of XLSTAT
If this was not already done, XLSTAT should firstly be installed on the computer. Here is a guide that will help you with that if you need to:
You do not have to activate XLSTAT using a license key. Such a key should already have been used in order to activate the XLSTAT License Server.
Connecting XLSTAT to the license server
In order to setup the connection to the server, simply start XLSTAT. On Windows, this can be done using the Desktop icon or directly via the Excel toolbar or ribbon. On Mac, please start XLSTAT by double-clicking on the icon you should have dropped into your Applications folder.
In the XLSTAT toolbar, click on the About XLSTAT button.
In the window that should have appeared, press the Activate button. A Registration window should appear. On that small window, please press the Network connection button.
Here you should have a form that asks you to provide the connection details of your server. Please provide the address of the server (1) to connect to, the port it is listening on (2), which should be 7070 unless it was changed by the administrator. After filling in the form, please click on the Test (3) button to make sure that XLSTAT can connect.
Once you are done, finally click on Validate (4) in order to save the connection details.
From now on, on the XLSTAT startup, a token will be retrieved from the server in order to work with the license that was activated on it.
If the test informs you about the failure of the connection establishment, please make sure that the typed address is correct and that the port is the one used on the server. If you still experience problems, please head over to the How to troubleshoot your network license setup guide.
