If you are using FreeFlyer inside a Docker container, you will need to connect a network license. For information on configuring a network license server, see the Network Licensing Instructions. Note, license servers and node-locked licenses are prohibited within a container.
Once the license server is configured, follow the steps below to connect to the network license from a Docker container.
1. Install Docker on your Windows or Linux machine.
2. Create a Dockerfile, following the Installing FreeFlyer instructions for whichever operating system your Docker container will be running, to install FreeFlyer in your Docker container.
Note: Building a Dockerfile is optional but is recommended for easily rebuilding your Docker image.
3. Navigate to the directory where your Dockerfile is saved and run the build command.
4. Create a container to run FreeFlyer in. In this example the container is named FreeFlyer and is being run in interactive mode.
5. Verify that the License Server is running:
6. Open a terminal window in your Docker container.
7. Using the server name and port specified by your System Administrator, use the register license server switch (-rls) to register the license server.
8. Use the report license information switch (-rli) to verify that the license was registered properly.
