Number of Extra Destination IPs
Number of Extra Destination IPs

In the Obkio Vision License, there is an option named Number of Extra Destinations IPs. It's important to understand how Obkio Vision works to clearly understand what counts as an Extra Destination IP.

First thing, there are two types of destinations inside Obkio Vision:

So for this license parameter, only the extra destinations added manually are counted.

The second thing to understand is that a hostname can resolve to multiple IPs. For example, the hostname obkio.com resolves to 4 IPs. So even if a single destination has been added, 4 Extra Destinations IPs are being used by this destination.

Cloud Remote Connection
Cloud Remote Connection

By default, to access Obkio Vision web interface, the URL http://localhost:9914 must be used. However, when there is a Cloud Remote Connection, a URL is available for each Obkio Vision instance so it can be accessed from the cloud. When Obkio Vision is used with an Obkio Agent (which is usually the case), a Cloud Remote Connection is available.

Expiration Date
Expiration Date

Each license has an expiration date. Note that the license that is transferred from the Obkio Agent is only valid for a few hours but it is automatically renewed by the agent.
