Installing Licenses
Each RADview license is associated with a single management station. This station is
identified by its IP/MAC address for Windows-based stations or its host ID for Unix-based
stations. If you do not know for which IP/MAC address to obtain the license, refer to
Frequently Asked Questions in the RADview-EMS/TDM (PC) User’s Guide, or to FAQ 6171
at the RAD Technical Support website.

Value Point website (via MyRAD or the Customer Information application). You can also
add license points at the RAD Value Point website. For details on using RAD Value Point,
refer to FAQ 4828 at the RAD Technical Support website.
