TurboFloat Server Commandline options

Below are the commandline options for the TurboFloat Server. Some options only apply to certain platforms (e.g. Windows-only, etc.) and will be noted as such. All other options apply to all platforms.

For options that accept file paths (-pdets, -config, -areq, -aresp, -pidfile) you can use either relative or absolute filenames. If you use relative filenames please note that the path will be "relative" to the TurboFloat Server executable, not relative to the "current directory".

Usage: TurboFloatServer -x [OPTION]...       (1st form)
  or:  TurboFloatServer -i [OPTION]...       (2nd form)
  or:  TurboFloatServer -u [OPTION]...       (3rd form)
  or:  TurboFloatServer -d [OPTION]...       (4th form)
  or:  TurboFloatServer -a [OPTION]...       (5th form)

1st form: runs the floating license from commandline manually.

2nd form: installs the floating license server to be run by the system.
          (Windows & Mac OS X only)

3rd form: stops & uninstalls the floating license server from the system.
          (Windows & Mac OS X only)

4th form: runs the floating license server as a daemon.
          (all non-Windows operating systems)

5th form: activates the floating license server on the computer. This must
          be done before the floating license server can be used.


-x                     Starts the floating license server from
                       commandline.

-d                     Starts the floating license server as a daemon.
                       Only for Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, and BSD.

-pdets=FILEPATH        Specify a custom location to the product
                       details file (TurboActivate.dat).

-config=FILEPATH       Specify a custom location to the config file.

-i                     Installs this floating license server as a:
                       Windows Service to run when the system boots.
                       (Windows only)

                       launchd daemon to run when the system boots.
                       (Mac OS X only)

-delaystart            When using the "-i" option this allows you to
                       *not* start the floating license server.
                       Only for Windows & Mac OS X.

-u                     Uninstalls this floating license server.
                       Only for Windows & Mac OS X.

-h                     Display this help and exit.

-v                     Output version and activation details then exit.

-a[=PRODUCTKEY]        Activates or re-activate this server.

-areq=FILEPATH         Generates an "offline activation" request file.
                       This must be used with the "-a" option.

-aresp=FILEPATH        Uses the "offline activation response" file to
                       activate the floating license server. This
                       must be used with the "-a" option.

-deact[=FILEPATH]      De-activates this server so that it can be
                       activated on another computer. If you specify
                       a FILEPATH then an "offline deactivation"
                       request file is generated.

-silent                Don't output to the screen.

-pidfile=FILEPATH      Write the process ID to a file.
                       Only for Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, and BSD.
