The Comsol license servers on watserv1 and ist are going to be shut down on March 29. Installations of COMSOL pointing to those servers will stop working.

All 44 users of the COMSOL research license are being notified to update their license files. I will be monitoring the old server to identify people who need to reconfigure.

The new servers require use of the VPN for off-campus use.

Subject: COMSOL License server moving and use of the VPN required for off-campus access

The COMSOL license server is moving from watserv1.uwaterloo.ca to a new server. Recent installations will automatically point to the new server. Off campus use will now require use of the VPN. Please update your license file by downloading the file "license.dat" from the IST Scientific Computing webstore. The file goes in the license folder in the COMSOL installation location.

Example locations are:

C:\COMSOL41\license
C:\COMSOL42\license
C:\Program Files\COMSOL42a\license

The old license server will be shut down on Thursday March 29 and installations using older license files (that specifically reference watserv1.uwaterloo.ca) will stop working.

The webstore URL is:

https://strobe.uwaterloo.ca/ist/saw/webstore/index.php

VPN instructions are at:
