We offer both floating (Yeti Studio) and node locked (Yeti Indie) licenses depending on what product configuration you’ve chosen - if you are unsure about what type of license you have please contact our license team and they will be happy to help.
All of our products use the Reprise License Manager license server in order to utilise floating licenses across multiple machines (and platforms) - there is no need to install the RLM server if you are using a node locked license.
A license is required to use any of our products, if you don’t have a license they can be purchased via our online store or by requesting a trial.
To be able to issue a license you will need to provide the Peregrine Labs team with relevant system information so that the correct license file can be generated, the most important of which is the host ID.
The host ID is a number that is unique to a specific computer that can be used to identify that machine for licensing purposes. In most cases, the host ID for your system will be the same as the MAC address (The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique identifier for most forms of networking equipment found in your computer) of your primary ethernet device (en0).
There are various methods for retrieving this information, you can download our license tools and use them to query for the host ID or use platform specific methods to determine the correct value.
Once you have the correct host ID this can be provided with your purchase or trial request so we may issue the license, it will be validated upon receipt to make sure it’s in the correct format.
If you have purchased a floating license please refer to our Floating (Studio) License Installation, otherwise node locked licensees can reference Node Locked (Indie) License Installation.
