I'm being asked for a hostid in order to get a PLECS license. Is this the same as my machine host name? Where can I access this information on my computer?
PLECS licenses are typically tied to a combination of your personal login name and the 12-character hexadecimal MAC address of the local area network (LAN) ethernet card in your computer.
You can obtain this information from within PLECS as follows:
- Select PLECS License Manager from the menu Help in the schematic editor.
- Click Get HostID....
- Click Copy to clipboard to copy the text to your system clipboard so that you can conventiently paste it e.g. into an email or a web form.
