This document describes the standard process for licensing the software to match your hardware and features, then
configuring the gateway for hardware communication. It assumes the Doors.NET software is already installed on your
host PC.
1.0
Get The License Key
A license key is required to enable the software. You can get a license key in three ways, depending upon your hardware
type:
1.
2.
3.
Use the license number on the case of the DVD.
This option is ONLY valid for new NXT controller installations.
Use the online licensing page. (http://license.kerisys.com/)
This option is valid for installations of new NXT, PXL, Entraguard, and Mercury Powered NXT controllers.
Call Keri Inside Sales.
This option is valid for any type of installation.
If you have one of these installation types you MUST call Inside Sales for a license:
•
•
•
1.1
You are using legacy PXL/EG controllers (described below).
You are using multiple hardware gateways.
You are installing optional, licensed features.
Creating a License Key Online
You now have the ability to create your own standard Keri license key using the License Key page on the
www.kerisys.com website. After entering system information the license key will be e-mailed to the installer.
You can create a license for the following controller types:
•
•
•
NXT
Mercury Powered NXT
PXL-500/Entraguard
The License Key page cannot accommodate non-standard licensing such as legacy PXL-500 and legacy Entraguard
hardware (typically upgrades from Doors32). It also cannot generate Doors Professional Edition licenses, multiple
hardware license types, or optional software modules.
Please contact Keri Inside Sales to obtain these types of licenses:

Demo Mode
Doors.NET has a demo mode feature that allows you 30 days of limited, basic operation. This can give you an opportunity
to try the software before obtaining a license. However, demo mode only supports NXT controllers; it does not support
PXL, Entraguard, or Mercury Powered NXT controllers.

PXL Legacy Versus Standard Controllers
If you have PXL Legacy controllers you are required to call Keri Inside Sales for a PXL Legacy license key. You will
need to provide the number of Legacy PXL controllers you want to license.
2.1
Identifying Legacy versus Standard PXL Controllers
The PXL controller’s model number label identifies if the controller is Standard or Legacy (refer to the figure below).
Standard controllers work directly with Doors.NET using a standard license. There is no controller limit when using
Standard controllers.
Standard PXL Label
Legacy PXL Label
PXL-500 P - X E/NE
P/N: xxxxx-xxx
S/N: xxxxxxxx
PXL-500 P - 1 E/NE
P/N: xxxxx-xxx
S/N: xxxxxxxx
PXL-500 W - X E/NE
P/N: xxxxx-xxx
S/N: xxxxxxxx
PXL-500 W - 1 E/NE
P/N: xxxxx-xxx
S/N: xxxxxxxx
Firmware v8.6.04 or Greater
PCB p/n: 054xx-xxx
Firmware v8.5.22 or Earlier
PCB p/n: 053xx-xxx
2.2
Legacy PXL Controllers
Legacy controllers require a PXL Legacy Count to be set on the license key to enable the controllers to work with
Doors.NET. By default this value is set to zero. Typically Legacy controllers are carrying over from an existing Doors32
installation that is being upgraded to Doors.NET. There is a per-controller fee for licensing Legacy controllers.
Legacy PXL controllers must be at firmware v8.4.49 or greater. This firmware revision is the earliest to implement the
current U.S. Daylight Standard Time dates and has the PXL’s complete anti-passback implementation. A CU500 firmware
upgrade is available for all PXL controllers to bring them up to the current firmware revision.
3.0
Entraguard Legacy Versus Standard Controllers
If you have Entraguard Legacy controllers you are required to call Keri Inside Sales for an Entraguard Legacy license key.
You will need to provide the number of Legacy PXL controllers you want to license.
3.1
Identifying Legacy versus Standard Entraguard Controllers
Entraguard units with this level of firmware or greater are Standard Entraguard units and are not subject to licensing fees:
•
•
Titanium and Silver - v7.8.01
Platinum - v9.2.01
Entraguard units with these firmware revisions require Legacy licensing:
•
•
Titanium and Silver - v7.6.09 (minimum revision allowed), v7.6.13
Platinum - v9.1.09 (minimum revision allowed)

Doors.NET. By default this value is set to zero. Typically Legacy controllers are carrying over from an existing Doors32
installation that is being upgraded to Doors.NET. There is a per-controller fee for licensing Legacy controllers.

Run the License Manager
Following installation of the software the system will need to be activated. Activation is performed using the License
Manager Utility and is most easily done using an active, unrestricted Internet connection.
The License Manager registers and activates your software and validates any applicable features or controller values,
allowing system use. Please have your license key ready before beginning this section.
1.
Once the software has successfully installed you will be prompted to run the License Manager.
