The BioWin license server is accessible on the wired campus network, on UAWiFi, as well as on the regular VPN and the

Engineering VPN profile for online/distance students.

  1. Open a web browser and enter http://localhost:1947 in the address bar.
  2. Click the Configuration option in the left menu bar.
  3. Click Access to Remote License Managers tab.
  4. In the text box next to Remote License Search Parameters, type in the license server address:
  5. Click the Submit button.
  6. You can close the web browser and open BioWin 5.3

Troubleshooting steps:

  • BioWin is unable to connect to the license server...
    • Verify internet connection
    • Verify VPN connection (if off campus)
    • Try VPN connection if on campus (though UAWifi and wired network connections should be able to connect to the license server)
    • Verify license server name was entered correctly (see instructions above)
