Onsite GLS – Proxy

The Goverlan Reach Server can be used as a proxy for Goverlan Reach Consoles to the Online Goverlan Licensing Service.

This can be used:

  • If internet access from the Operators’ machine is unavailable.
  • To enable silent license distribution.


Enabling Proxy GLS

Open the Goverlan Reach Server’s Server Configuration window and select the Licensing Server Settings section:

Setting Description
Use this GRS as a Licensing Server Disabled

Disables the on-premise licensing services. Goverlan Operators will require internet connectivity or web proxy access to the Goverlan Licensing Servers to perform licensing tasks.



Enable as a proxy
The GRS redirects all inbound licensing requests to the online Goverlan Licensing Server.


In this mode, Goverlan Operators will not require internet connectivity. However, the Goverlan Reach Server must be able to communicate with the online GLS at the following address:


Listening Port The inbound communication port used to service Goverlan Operator licensing requests.
Use an HTTP Proxy to access the Internet If your organization uses a Web or Internet Proxy, Enable this setting and enter your Proxy Host and Port details. NOTE: Proxy servers that require authentication are not supported.
Enable silent license distribution Enable this option if you do not wish Goverlan Operators to have to sign-in to the software. This feature requires a Goverlan account to be configured.

See: Enabling Silent License Distribution


Once configured, click on OK to publish your settings.


In order for the On-Premise Goverlan licensing Services to work, the Goverlan Reach Server must be properly advertised and started.


Enabling Silent License Distribution

Enable this option to distribute sign-in credentials to Goverlan Operators automatically.

This option requires the configuration of a pre-existing Goverlan account. This account will be used to perform silent sign-in on behalf of the Goverlan Operators.

As a best practice, create a dedicated NON-ADMIN account for auto-sign in (for instance autosign@mycompany.com), and assign it to the licenses that you wish to distribute to your operators.

If multiple licenses are associated to the auto-sign in account, the Goverlan software automatically consumes the most appropriate license based on the locally installed features. For instance, if the operator only installs the Goverlan Remote Control feature, and the Goverlan auto-sign in account is associated with both a Goverlan Suite license and a Goverlan RC license, then the Goverlan RC license is used.

Once this setting is published, new Goverlan Operators will be able to open their Goverlan products without a Goverlan account. A floating license is silently provided to the user and released when the user closes the product.
