Install Floating License Server

Extract the contents of the ZIP package into a directory where you want the server to reside. We will refer to this directory throughout the docs as <fls_home>.

Launch the MSI installer, and when started select or provide installation directory. We will refer to it throughout the docs as <fls_home>.

Starting FLS

Run in the command line:

<fls_home>/bin/license-server.sh start

When you install Floating License Server with an MSI distribution, FLS runs as a Windows service. The display name of the windows service is JetBrains License Service. After the initial configuration, the application runs in the background on the machine.

To start the Windows service, use the Services Microsoft Management Console (MMC) (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services).

In later versions of Windows, you can right-click the application in the Start menu to start the service.

Stopping FLS

Run in the command line:

<fls_home>/bin/license-server.sh stop

Stop JetBrains License Service from Windows Services panel.

Restarting FLS

Run in the command line:

<fls_home>/bin/license-server.sh restart
