    check /var/ifor/i4ls.ini

    The relevant entries are:


    with being the IP address of your new License Server.

    Please keep in mind that the entries in that file are case-sensitive!

    If you don't have this file on your system please check the contents of the variable IFOR_CONFIG ("echo $IFOR_CONFIG") if it points to a different configuration file.

    You could also try the java-based GUI tool /usr/opt/ifor/ls/bin/i4cfg.

    .. just saw that there is a rather exhaustive manpage for i4cfg ("man i4cfg").

    It explains the usage of the commandline format, please check particularly the "-b" option!
