Securing Your Genesys License
Genesys licenses can be secured to your personal computer's (PC) local area network (LAN) physical address or a universal serial bus (USB) hardware key serial number.
- LAN Physical Address - When secured to your computer LAN physical address, the danger of losing the small USB hardware key is eliminated and your license enables you to start using Genesys just like any other software on your PC.
- USB Hardware Key - When secured to a USB hardware key, you have the convenience of license portability to run Genesys on different computers. However, you may risk losing the USB key which then prevents you from using Genesys. The part number for the USB Hardware Key is "E8900K" (configuration option 030).
