Borrowing a permit when not connected to the network

With your assistance, a user can borrow a permit when they are not connected to the network. The user must be able to send and receive text and files over email or other means.


On the client:

  1. Run WRCommute.exe. WRCommute is found in the %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\i2 Shared\Licensing directory. The client locking code string is displayed on the Get Locking Code tab.

On a computer that is able to connect to the server:

  1. Run WCommute.exe.
    WCommute is found in the IBM® i2® application downloaded distribution in the \Product Access Management\Utils directory. On a server that is used to distribute permits, WCommute.exe might be present in the %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\Administration Tools directory.
  2. To find the server to borrow a permit from, click Search Subnet, or click Single Server and specify a server name or IP address.
  3. In the navigation pane, expand the server, select the required feature, and select Check out authorization for remote machine.
    1. In the Enter number of days until the commuter authorization expires field, enter the number of days to borrow the permit for.
      Note: A permit that is remotely borrowed cannot be returned before expiry. Upon expiry, the permit automatically becomes available again from the server. Borrow the permit for only the amount of time that it is required.
    2. Click Check Out.
      The "Locking code for Remote Machine" window is displayed.
  4. Click Enter the locking code string for remote machine, enter the client locking code string, and click OK.
  5. Click Save commuter authorization to file. Browse to the directory to save the permit file to, enter a file name, click Save, then click OK.
    The permit file is saved.

On the client:

  1. Run WRCommute.exe. On the Install Remote Authorization Code tab, click Get remote authorization codes from file. Browse to the permit file and click the permit file. Click Open, and click Install. The borrowed permit is installed on the remote user's computer.
