Installing Mathematica for Network Licenses
is available for Windows, Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X. For a complete list of platform availability, click here.
Any supported machine can act as a client for running Mathematica
, provided the following two conditions are met:
- The client has access to the Mathematica files, either locally or from a file server on the network.
- The license server running MathLM is available on the TCP/IP network.

To install Mathematica:
Note: This step may not be required on some Linux and Unix platforms, as some operating systems automatically handle mounting.
2.Change directory to /cdrom/Unix/Installer.
Note that the exact location of the CD mount point might be different for your platform. (Give the exact path and change to that directory where the file is located.)
3. Run the installer.

4.You are asked to select the platforms for which you are doing the installation. Select one or more of the available options and press Enter to continue.
|For which of the following platforms would you like to install Mathematica?
Type your selection (multiple choices can be separated with spaces), or press ENTER to select (1):
If you specify a directory that does not exist, the installer will give you the option of creating the directory. If a copy of Mathematica already exists in the directory you specify, the installer will inform you before overwriting the files.
5. The installer prompts you to specify the directory in which Mathematica should be installed. The default location is /usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/6.0. Press Enter to accept the default, or type in a new location and then press Enter.
|Enter the installation directory, or press ENTER to select
Note: If you specify a directory that does not exist, the installer will give you the option of creating the directory. If a copy of Mathematica already exists in the directory you specify, the installer will inform you before overwriting the files.
6.Once you have answered all the questions, the installer begins copying files from the CD to the directory you specified. The progress is indicated by a progress bar on the screen.
|Now installing…[*************** ]
7.You are asked for the location in which to copy the executable scripts. You should choose a directory that is present on each user’s PATH. The scripts are also installed in the subdirectory of the Mathematica installation directory. Type a location or accept the default and press Enter.
|Type the directory path in which the Mathematica scripts will be created, or press ENTER to select /usr/local/bin:
Note:The installer checks to see if any other Mathematica scripts exist in the specified directory. If they do, you are given the chance to rename the scripts.
8.You are given several options for configuring the password. Type 2 and press Enter to run Mathematica using a network license.
|Please choose how you want to configure the password for Mathematica 6.0.
- Single machine
Install a password specific to this machine. Mathematica will launch and you can enter your password.
- Network license
Obtain a license from a MathLM license server on your network each time Mathematica is launched.
- Enter license information later
Input your password and register when you start Mathematica.
- Type your selection, or press ENTER to select (1):2
|Enter the hostname of the machine on which your MathLM license manager
is running: sunlx2_17.serc.iisc.ernet.in
9.The installer creates the mathpass file and displays its location. The installation is now complete.
