3- How to check your license terms

Admin Control Center is installed as part of the Sentinel HASP Run-time Environment driver installation process. To launch the Admin Control Center, type http://:1947 in the address field of your browser. If you are accessing locally to the HASP License Manager installed on your own machine, type http://localhost:1947.

See : How to manage Hasp Key Software

Sentinel Admin Control Center (ACC)

You have to activate the license.

Checking restriction on license

The Admin Control Center enables you to monitor the following :
- All the HASP keys that are currently available on the network server, including their identity, type, and location ;
- The number of users currently logged on a HASP key, and the maximum number of users allowed to be simultaneously logged on that specific key ;
- The features to which each HASP key allows access and any restrictions that apply to the features ;
- The users who are currently logged on a specific HASP key, including detailed login information.

Checking the Products license terms
For the server key, click on “Products”. It displays the products available on the computer.

If you click on “Features”, it will display the features available and the licensing terms.

In our example, SHOTS is limited until Friday, 29 March 2013 and will require activation again after that date

From the ACC web-based interface you can display how many computers are using simulators.

- If you click on “Sessions” you will display on which computer the simulator is running.
