On the machine hosting the license manager and from the EViews license management console, under local sever->IP Filter->Allow, you will find a list of ‘allowed’ client IP address. Verify that the IP address of the client machine that is running EViews is in this list. If it is not, press the right mouse button while over ‘Allow’. In the displayed menu select ‘Edit List’ and add your IP range of client machines.

Yes,I found it,thank you again.

For the cloning installation,i need to lock every laboratory copy of EViews?

If i don't execute the command(eviews7.exe /lock) on every pc,what would happen?
Too many pcs need to install...

The lock/unlock mechanism indicates whether or not a machine can be cloned.

You only need to lock/unlock any machine where EViews was installed from the CD. Machines cloned from an unlocked machine are already locked and cannot be unlocked.

Running EViews on an unlocked machine will lock it. If a machine is unlocked and EViews has not been started than that machine may be cloned.
