Ilok sharing error

Hi, I want to use virtualhere to juggle my 30 iloks in my studios over lan. But I’ve run into the “ilok sharing error” can I get around this somehow? Right now I am using a mac as the server but can also get a rasberry Pi if thats better...

You need a hub that supports per power port control https://github.com/mvp/uhubctl . That list is accurate but it changes all the time so i cant recommend any of those hubs except for using the pi3b (not plus) port 2. That definitely works. But that will only support on ilok on that port

Hi, we would like to use 4

Hi, we would like to use 4 iloks on a Raspberry 2 Model B to share on the network. With 1 ilok on port 1 it does work as expected.
We get the "ilok sharing error" on all other ports.
We also tried a Belkin F5U701-BLK on ports 1 and 2 of the raspberry - but it does not work.
Do you have a solutioon?
Or do we have to use one raspberry for each ilok?

You'll have to try other hubs from that list

thanks for your quick reply.

thanks for your quick reply. We connect the hub on raspberrys usb port 1?

The hub can be connected to

The hub can be connected to any port on the pi

Hi - Have I understood this

Hi - Have I understood this correctly that with The Model PI 3+ I can switch on/off the iLok USB with uhubctl installed?

If so, can someone pleeaseee write a step by step guide on how to install and execute that task. Would be extremely appreciated.

Many Thanks,

You dont have to do anything its automatic.

The virtualhere server just needs to be installed on a pi and the ilok plugged into the correct port explained on the uhubctrl url table and it will just automatically power-cycle when required.

Edit: Actually theyve changed that usbhubctl table slightly. It used to be simple for the pi. But basically you put it into port 2.

Sory for the somewhat sloppy

Sory for the somewhat sloppy explanation.

Everything is running great except that I don't understand how to trigger the command that's supposed to "unplug" the iLok.

I've gotten to:
"sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev"
It installs and seems like its running but when trying
"uhubctl -l 1-1 -p 2 -a 0"
: -bash: uhubctl: command not found

Seems like I haven't been able to install uhubctl correctly? or using the wrong command?

Best,

I think I see what you mean

I think I see what you mean now..Upon automatic virtual ejection of the iLok it should clear up any iLok Sharing issues when switching computer.. In that case its not working for me as expected. Any differences between the demoversion of VirtualHere server and the specifally compiled version for the Pi3+?

Thanks again,

Try a different USB port, you

Try a different USB port, you might not have it in Port 2. Port 2 is the lower left one I think, when looking directly at them

Thought I tried all ports.

Thought I tried all ports. Will try again tomo or day after that.

Thanks for your patience.

Have a NESPI Case (Nintendo looking case for my Pi) with a USB HUB/Riser that connects to one of the Pi's USB ports. Ive forgotten about this and this just dawned upon me now.... (Put it together well over a year ago)

"You dont have to do anything its automatic. " - Yes it is! :) In my case on the lower, furthest away USB port from the built in Ethernet jack.

Thanks for a brilliant app & support. License bought.

Still not working with Pi4

Hello there, we followed all the steps, tested all the usb ports and we still have ilok sharing error message when trying to connect via another computer. Any ideas please?

Pi 4 /4gb RAM
Virtual here server unlimited license optimized for Pi4
ilok3 for PT Ultimate

You probably need to update your pi4 firmware https://github.com/mvp/uhubctl#raspberry-pi-4b
