Your AhsayCBS server using a Meter License Key has to be connected to our license server (http://lic.ahsay.com) at all time in order for us to retrieve your correct license usage. If our license server cannot detect your Meter License usage, you may be charged based on the usage of the previous month. Your Meter License may be deactivated without further notice. In order to reactivate the Meter License key, you will need to settle any outstanding payment on meter usage.
To avoid service interruption and paying the reactivation fee, please perform the followings periodically on your AhsayCBS:
Your meter license will be deactivated if one of the followings happens:
