At times a computer network seems mysterious. Decisions
must be made when any problem arrises to determine
what is at fault and how well things are actually working.
The start of investigation requires diagnostic utilities which
will measure functionality. The HASP floating license system used by
GTX software is designed by Aladdin Knowledge Systems.
GTX provides its customers the diagnostic tools that evaluate
network communication between a license broadcasting computer
and a client computer which seeks the license.
The MONITOR.EXE program, when properly installed in the
version that is compatible with the NetHASP license manager,
may be run from any Windows computer on the served network.
The example below shows a "Protocols" frame which
displays the possible network protocols over which a
NetHASP license manager may be
broadcasting a GTX program license.
Double clicking the "Selected Protocol" will cause a response in the
"NetHASP License Manager" frame, which categorizes descriptive
identification queues which allow the program user to identify active
license managing computers on the network.
As a diagnostic event, the MONITOR.EXE helps determine
whether an individual computer is capable of "seeing" the license server.
If a GTX license server is found and displayed in the NetHASP
License Manager frame, double clicking the line describing the
server will cause a response in the frame named
NetHASP Users. This frame describes which available licenses
are in use. For detailed information on this subject refer to
the MONITOR.HLP file.
The HASPDIAG.EXE program is primarily intended for use on
a license serving computer which is attached to the NetHASP
key. The program is installed with the GTX programs found on
the GTX product CD and directly on the disk in the
\HASP\DIAGS folder. A useful feature as diplayed here is found
under the HASP Device Driver tab. This choice may be used
to determine the status of the local HASP device driver installation.
