Overview

The NP-View and NP-Live applications are licensed on an annual basis. The cost of the license depends on the number of configuration files imported from managed layer-3 network devices (firewalls, routers, and switches). Individual IP addresses do not count in the license limit and there is no restriction on the number of projects or workspaces.

For consultants and auditors, we offer a NP Certification program that includes a 10-device license and training.

How to add a license to NP-View Java (Gen. 1)

  • Step 1: Create an account on the Portal website at https://portal.network-perception.com
  • Step 2: If you don’t see an active license in the Portal home page, select “Request License” or contact support@network-perception.com
  • Step 3: Once a license key has been generated for you, make sure the format is correct. It should have two parts:
    • A license info: <email-address>:<expiration-date>:<total-devices>
    • A license key: <long-sequence-of-alphanumerical-characters>
  • Step 4: Launch NP-View Java. If no license has been added yet, a popup window will prompt you to enter the license info (top field) and license key (bottom field) before being able to use NP-View. If a license has already been added and you would like to upgrade it, then go to the Help menu and select “License” > “Renew your license”.

How to add a license to NP-View HTML (Gen. 2) and NP-Live

  • Step 1: Create an account on the Portal website at https://portal.network-perception.com
  • Step 2: If you don’t see an active license in the Portal home page, select “Request License” or contact support@network-perception.com
  • Step 3: Once a license key has been generated for you, make sure the format is correct. It should be a JSON structure similar to:
    • {
      "max_rulesets": XX,
      "expiration": "YYYY-MM-DD",
      "key": "<long-sequence-of-alphanumerical-characters>",
      "email": "<email-address>",
      "type": "<product-and-license-type>"
      }
  • Step 4: Launch NP-View Gen. 2 or NP-Live and select “License & terms” from the user menu (top right corner). Then select “Upgrade or renew your license” followed by “Input license manually”. You can then copy/paste the license JSON structure (including opening and closing curly brackets) into the text field area.
