EVE-PRO license re-hosting or re-activation

If you decide to re-install EVE-PRO or move it to another host, please follow the steps below:

Pre-requisites:

  • EVE must have internet access!
  • Only ONE EVE host must be turned ON and connected to the internet, do NOT have more than one EVE with the same license turned on at the same time!

Step 1. Make sure that you have only ONE EVE-PRO instance with this license running.

Step 2. Make sure you have unrestricted Internet access with a properly configured DNS server from your EVE machine or configure the firewall rule for EVE Licensing server access and license validation: Bidirectional (in/out)  allowed access to: https://www-eve-ng.net

Step 3. Load your purchased license onto EVE server you want to rehost to.

Step 4. Reboot your new EVE

Step 5. Wait approximately 15 mins for the licence validation process to finish on the host.

  • NOTE: The re-hosted EVE server must have internet access to periodically validate the license. EVE receives a token with a licence validity time of 24 hours. During those 24 hours, the re-hosted EVE can be used offline. After 24 hours the token time expires and you have to get EVE online again (for approximately 30minutes) to receive a new token.
