6. Licensing memoQ on the terminal server
Before you can use memoQ on your terminal server, you need to acquire a CAL license pool. You need a memoQ TMS to distribute and manage your licenses within the organization. The license pool is issued to the memoQ TMS's serial number. The license pool always contains some licenses for the translator pro edition, and it might also contain licenses for the project manager edition.
A user can run memoQ on the terminal server if they have a permission to do so.
The number of licenses determines how many instances of memoQ you can run at the same time within your organization, including the copies on your terminal server. Depending on the configuration of the memoQ TMS, the licenses can be assigned to users or computers – but you can also choose to limit the number of users only.
To acquire a CAL license pool, contact your account manager. You can either purchase a license pool, or obtain a time-limited trial license.
When you start memoQ on a terminal server, it will take a license from the CAL license pool, managed and distributed by a memoQ TMS in your organization. The memoQ TMS must be accessible to the terminal server over TCP port 2705.
The memoQ TMS might be serving licenses to other systems, too, not just to the memoQ copies on your terminal server(s). CAL licensing on the memoQ TMS must be fully set up when you start using memoQ on your terminal server.
Starting to use memoQ if CAL licensing is already configured
If the memoQ TMS is already configured in your organization to distribute CAL licenses, you are ready to use memoQ after you install it in multi-user mode. Users can log on to the terminal server, start memoQ, and claim CAL licenses that are available to them. To claim CAL licenses, they can use the memoQ activation wizard or the Log in to server window.
Installing memoQ TMS and switching to CAL licensing
You need to purchase and install memoQ TMS in your organization. See this documentation article for instructions to plan, install, and manage memoQ TMS.
Normally, a new memoQ TMS will run in CAL licensing mode. If it is set to ELM licensing,
you need to switch to CAL:
Log in to the memoQ TMS computer through Remote Desktop.
From the Start menu, launch memoQ Server Deployment Administration.
On the Address tab, under Licensing mode, click the CAL licensing radio button.
Click Save, then close the warning message.
In the memoQ Server Deployment Administration window, click Stop memoQ TMS, then click Start memoQ TMS.
Using the Terminal Server configurator tool to control CAL licensing
You can also control your CAL licensing from the memoQ Terminal Server configurator tool that installs with memoQ in multi-user mode. Before you grant permissions to users and computers, you need to log on to memoQ TMS with an administrator account.
The Terminal Server configurator tool has a Licenses category, which offers the exact same functionality as the CAL licenses category in memoQ's Server Administrator.
You cannot activate memoQ TMS from the Terminal Server configurator tool, but you can control how it grants, tracks, and revokes CAL licenses. This is described in the Server Administrator documentation article.
