How to define IP block for license option file?

Pioneer
Pioneer

We are trying to create an option file for our license server and we want to allow the computers to get license by using their IP addresses.

The addresses are following each other in a block. Instead of writing all of them at once, can we define them in  line?

 

eg: we have 40 computers which have IP starting from 123.123.123.1 to 123.123.123.40

 

can we define a line like this? : INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.1-123.123.123.40

 

how can we do this without writing the addresses one by one?

INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.*

See the Common Licensing Toolkit documentation, especially the FlexNET documentation, for detailed descriptions in section "Managing the Options File". You must read the section from the beginning, which is always the best way to not miss any information, instead of jumping directly to a key-word to find the information about wild-card usage.

I have already read all the necessary documents (and the ones you pointed) from top to bottom word by word. Then I couldn't find the necessary information and wrote here.

I know the documents tell about wild cards on IP addresses and I also saw the example 123.123.123.*

But this definition covers the whole IP block from 123.123.123.0 to 123.123.123.255 which is not suitable for us. We want to define only 40 IP's from 123.123.123.1 to 123.123.123.40.

 

Is there any way of doing this with some sort of wild character use?

Have you tried the following?

INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.00*
INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.01*
INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.02*
INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.03*
INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.040

If it doesn't work, then you need to ask GTAC, so that they can ask FlexNET.

Update:
INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.00*
INCLUDEALL INTERNET 123.123.123.01* etc. did not work, we entered the IPs one by one.
