How to reclaim a license (on UNIX and Linux)


The easiest, of course, is to go to the machine and close down the EasyCopy GUI.

From a remote terminal, you can use the following procedure:

Log in to that person's machine and type:

ps -deaf | grep easycopy.bin 

This will give you a line similar to the follwing:

user 18487 18482 0 09:56 pts/3 00:00:00 /app/easycopy/bin/linux2/easycopy.bin 

The process_id is the second field on that line (here 18487). Kill the process (gently) by typing

kill -15 process_id 

This will release the license immediately.
