Beckhoff (745C) Ethercat flex license set up support.

We have purchased ETHERCAT 1810/12 flex licenses from Vendor Beckhoff (745C), . We are struggling to setup the license file on server to use with Intel Quartus Prime lite edition. We need binaries to install and set up the license file. Can you please help. we tried to set up license file using some documentation from Intel but the license services goes down automatically after some time and we have to manually restart it.

 

Ethercat /Beckhoff support team mentioned that they do not support server licensing and asked us to contact intel support. Looking forward for your support to get the license file installed properly.
