How to install Checkpoint License

I recently obtained a license from Checkpoint for Firewall 1.  Apparently, you can download the license and install it on the firewall.  After downloading the file, I changed the extension to .lic and installed it into Checkpoint configuration.  However, I noticed that it comes up as a base license with a "never" expiration, but says nothing about number of users (connections), etc.  Is this complete?  Or am I missing something?

Try looking at www.phoneboy.com in the licensing area.  It has some useful information.

the license does not list the number of concurrent connections?  I bought 50.

Then that's what you got.  I am pretty sure it's in the feature string somewhere.

Run fw printlic to display installed licenses.
A 50 user license will have 50 written into the license string somewhere.  If it's not, then you've got the wrong license, the old license or the new one hasn't installed properly.
Always use the fw putlic command as it appears in the license .txt file.  Converting it to a .lic won't work.
Make sure the fw putlic command you cut and paste from your license text does not include any carriage returns.
