Concurrent License (RAM) Relay Server

DicomObjects’ concurrent licensing model allows users to set up an internal relay server using Asp.net (as a web service) which acts as a gateway for clients that do not have any Internet access. Each time a client machine sends a request out, that request is sent directly to the relay server, which in turn polls the live DicomObjects licensing server. As soon as a response is recieved by the relay server, it then sends that response back to the original client.

Create the ASP.Net Web Service:

 
public class RamService : System.Web.Services.WebService
{
    [WebMethod]
    public byte[] GetRamLicenseToken(string AuthorisationString, string MachineID, 
        string UserInfo, out string error)
    {
        try
        {
            // Consumes our online license server's RamLicense2 web method
            MCLicenseServer1.LicenseServiceSoapClient client = new MCLicenseServer1.LicenseServiceSoapClient();
            var token= client.RamLicense2(AuthorisationString, MachineID, DateTime.Now.Ticks, UserInfo, out error);
            if (string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(error) && token != null)
                return token;
            else
            {
                return null;
            }
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            error = ex.Message;
            return null;
        }            
    }
}

Add a reference to the Medical Connections licensing server in your relay server application

Add a reference to the web service in your client application so that it is pointing to your internal relay server

Client code pointing to your ASP.Net Web Service

 
if (DicomLicense.InstalledLicenses.Count == 0)
{
       RamService1.RamServiceSoapClient client = new RamService1.RamServiceSoapClient();
       string error = "";
       // Consumes local license server's GetRamLicenseToken web method
       byte[] token = client.GetRamLicenseToken("CONCURRENT-KEY-HERE", DicomLicense.MachineID, "COMPANY NAME HERE", out error);
       if (string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(error) && token != null)
       {
          DicomLicense.AddRamLicense(token);
          MessageBox.Show(getLicenseDetails(DicomLicense.CurrentLicense));
       }
}

private string getLicenseDetails(DicomLicense l)
{
    return $@"Allowed Functions: {l.AllowedFunctions}{Environment.NewLine}
            AuthorisationID:  {l.AuthorisationID}{Environment.NewLine}
            Enpiry Date:  {l.Expiry.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")}{Environment.NewLine}
            IsRamLicense: {l.IsRamLicense}{Environment.NewLine}
            License ID:   {l.LicenseID}{Environment.NewLine}
            License Token: {l.LicenseToken}{Environment.NewLine}
            License Type: {l.LicenseType}{Environment.NewLine}";
}

Each time a workstation RAM license expires, the client will request a new key directly from your relay server, which in turn will poll the online Medical Connections server.
