Question Software Question


Hey
I'm working with a peice of software called TeemX on a Redhat 7.1 system. Now teemX is licensed by IP Address. What is does is it performs a kernel call to get the IP Address. Now I changed my IP Address and the accosiated license file to run teemX but TeemX still sees the old IP Address altho the machine is running the new one and can accept telnets into the RH machine. So I'm guess that maybe there might be a minor flaw in the kernel 2.4.2-2 that would return the wrong ip address when a program calls for it.. can anyone confirm this?

Ron

Is it possible that your app stores the old IP address in another location in addition to being in the license file?

the app doesnt store the IP Address. It gets it by calling something in the kernel. the only file that the app uses are the license file and the binary, plus some fonts.

I do not know of a bug like you're describing, which would be really weird anyway since Linux is a network OS since way back into the previous century. :-]

IMO, since this is 1) a commercial application, and 2) you singlehandedly changed IP/license info, you should take this issue up with the vendor.

I am support for the vendor. We can't find whats causeing this. I'm having the people that wrote it go through thier information but they can sometimes take a lot of time. I was hoping for a quicker answer. I have seen other problems like this on other boards but no one really has an answer. I just thought I'd try here thanks for your help tho.
