# Dongles

The MOSEK license file is tied to a unique id which normally is a MAC address. This implies that the license server can only be installed on one computer. If this is not desirable, a method of using MOSEK on multiple non networked computers is to tie the license file to an id provided by an USB dongle. In that case the license can be installed on any computer. However, only the computer that has the dongle attached can use MOSEK. It is important to observe that:

• All the dongle does is to provide a unique id.
• After the dongle installation you must install the license server on the computer. The installation of the license server is independent of whether a dongle is employed or not.

Before installing the license server the dongle itself should be installed using the platform specific instructions. Detailed information about the Flexlm manager and the dongle can be found in the License Administration Guide. If the installation causes problems, then please contact MOSEK support.
