Running more than one Centrex
Proxy Server® on the same machine
This section will give you additional information
in the case that you need to install and run more than one Centrex Proxy
Server® instance on the same host machine. The process is simple and you
can run as many proxy instances as you require.
Purchase a license for each instance you want to run:
Each installed image of the Centrex Proxy Server® must have its own product
license installed. You can purchase additional licenses from the LanScape
on line web store. Note: You do not need to re-download your product image.

install each server into its own separate directory. The actual location
that you install to does not matter. Just make sure all installed instances
of your multiple server configuration are installed to their own unique

from the Windows registry. When running multiple instances of the server,
you must specify that configuration settings be restored and saved using
a configuration file. Lets assume you want to run 2 instances of the server
software on your host machine, in this case you could start each instance
Proxy1\CentrexProxy.exe" -f Proxy1.ini
"C:\Program Files\LanScape\Centrex Proxy2\CentrexProxy.exe" -f
The above startup command lines assume that
you have installed 2 instances of the product. One to the "Centrex
Proxy1" directory and the other to the "Centrex Proxy2"
directory. All configuration settings will be maintained in the 2 *.ini
files you specified on the command line.
If you run more than one instance of the server on the same host machine,
you must make sure that the servers are configured properly such that
they do not conflict with each other (i.e. network settings, log file
