How do I set up access to the license server from a client machine?

The easiest way to set up access to a license server is to obtain a copy of the license file (license or license.txt) and place it in the Schrödinger installation directory on your client machine.

On Mac OS X, you can place the license file in /Library/Application Support/Schrodinger on your client machine instead of in the installation. This location is independent of the software installation, so you will not need to copy the license file every time you install a new release.

Another method is to set the environment variable SCHROD_LICENSE_FILE to the value port@host, where port is the port number (third argument after SERVER in the license file), and host is the host name of the license server. The port number can be omitted if the default port number (in the range 27000-27009) is being used. This method is also independent of the installation.
