To set up a SystemLink environment, you can select from the following licensed products:
SystemLink Server: This software package installs the NI Web Server and SystemLink Web Application. Customers should purchase a SystemLink Server for each central computer that will manage a group of connected systems, such as Windows PCs or NI Linux Real-Time controllers.
SystemLink Node: Each managed system is considered a “node.” The SystemLink Node license establishes the allowed number of Windows or Linux Real-Time systems that you can manage with a SystemLink Server. Customers should purchase a sufficient quantity of SystemLink Node licenses to support the managed systems that you want to manage with a server.
- SystemLink Node licenses require a SystemLink Server.
- SystemLink licensing requires an NI volume license manager.
