NetHASP Configuration

A NetHASP distributed software license may be accessed by the GTX protected application over local and wide area networks. In many cases, where the networked client computers reside on differing segments of the network, a NetHASP configuration file is required to access the license. The configuration file is named NETHASP.INI. This is a text file which in it's most common form contains the following text:


 Where nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn represents the IP address of the NetHASP License server.

With the addition of a HASP server's IP address entered after NH_SERVER_ADDR= , the following may be copied to a file named nethasp.ini and applied as is.


The search sequence for file folder placement of the NETHASP.INI follows:

1. Protected executable file directory, (The GTXImage CAD or GTXRaster CAD program directory)

2. Current directory

3. Windows directory

4. Path set in the system environment variables

We recommend placement of the file in the GTXImage CAD or GTXRaster CAD program directory. The INI file is common to all client computers which will access a license from the License Manager running on the computer with the stated NH_SERVER_ADDR=

To simplify the creation of a common NETHASP.INI file, GTX provides an Aladdin Knowledge Systems program named NHINIWIZ.EXE which is described in the following:

The NetHASP Configuration File Wizard is designed to help you create or edit the NetHASP configuration file quickly and easily. The NetHASP configuration file is a file in which you can fine-tune the NetHASP settings for your protected GTX application. 

The NetHASP Configuration File Wizard lets you indicate which protocols you are using, and specify new settings for each protocol. You can go back and reedit a previous screen at any point in the Wizard, by clicking Back. To continue on to the following screen, click Next. If you want to exit the Wizard, click Cancel.

The recommended path, for the file named nethasp.ini, is the GTXImage CAD or GTXRaster CAD path



This message indicates an un-editable nethasp.ini file resides in the chosen file creation path. The interfering nethasp.ini file should be removed from the chosen path in order to proceed.


Set the IP Address to that of the NetHASP license manager computer and select the Add button.

Ignore this choice; GTX does not provide a NetHASP test utility. Press the Finish button.
