Note on licensing

Without a valid license(license is on valid time and has enough user count slot), an administrator can still configure the product with AD as desired but users will not be able to login or upload files and can't manually add local users. In order to get complete functionality, ensure expected behavior, and stay compliant with OPSWAT terms and conditions, you must have a valid license activated.
