I am currently using Flexlm 11.3 of software and 11.9.1 of embedded version.
I wanted to check when was the TLS support introduced for Flexlm and if any of these versions support TLS?
@shans1 , I am not sure if FNP has any version as v11.3 and by embedded version, did you mean FNE? I am also afraid that i haven't heard about FNE v11.9.1
However, as far FNP toolkit is concerned TLS is related with lmadmin i.e. the UI variant of the license server.
For reference, in FNP 11.12.1, the OpenSSL version used was 1.0.1e. For FNP 11.13.1, the OpenSSL version used was 1.0.1h. In FNP 11.13.1, it got upgraded to 1.0.1j. And, for FNP 11.14, the OpenSSL version remained at 1.0.1j.
From 11.14.0 onwards we are supporting all versions of TLS protocol and disabling SSLv2 and SSLv3 by default.
How to override default behavior of enable and /or SSLv2/v3.
Add the below line in webServer tag of server.xml.
sslProtocol="+SSLv3 +SSLv2 " -> It will enable SSLv3 and SSLv2 protocols only
sslProtocol="+SSLv3 +SSLv2 -TLSv1" -> It will enable SSLv3 and SSLv2 protocols and disable TLSv1
Thank you for getting back on this.
I mean to refer to FLEXnetlm-v11_3 - Flexnet License Manager v11.3.
I am just trying to understand the version number from which Flexnet License manager started supporting TLS protocol.
I am afraid that FlexLM License Manager is a different product all together and i am not aware of the details on that.
However, i did a search on it and i can see that there are different variants of the application provided to publishers (For ex: Cloud based, SAP, engineering applications and standalone).
Also, as per my understanding, Flexlm and Flexnet Publisher are the same product. Please correct me f I am wrong.
I am just a beginner and it is getting confusing for me little bit.
I see what you meant. FlexLM keyword was used in way past for FNP , on the other hand "Flexnet License manager" is a completely different product.
As far as FNP-11.3 is concerned, it has been EOL for over 8 years.
I don't have access to its documentation. But to answer your question, the TLS support is only available for/through lmadmin, so if you don't have lmadmin in v11.3, then TLS is not there.
