Generate Demo License


I'm trying to generate a demo license for EPiServer 7 CMS (

and I'd like to know what "Bound Input" is and what I need to enter?


I apolgize if this is not the correct forum for this question.

The license file must be generated for the server you intend to use it on. You can bind the license to either the servers IP address or the mac address. I would advise using IP address for this purpose.

So basically the IP of my computer since I'll be trying it out on it.

Thanks Thomas.

Yes. :) If you are working for an EPiServer Partner, you should go for a developer license instead of a demo license.

Bound input:

Use MAC if it's your development computer normally

Use IP if it's a test / stage / productionserver since it will then be possible to change server hardware without ordering a new license. The IP is the internal IP of the server.

ipconfig /all gives you nice info about both MAC and IP

Daniel has a very good point. I keep forgetting that not everyone else has a fixed IP on their dev machine.... :)

Alright, thanks Daniel!
