If for any reason AfterFLICS service fails to install you can do this manually by pressing "Install" option from the "Service" menu.
Communication port is the port on which AfterFLICS Server and Guests communicate. If you change Port number inside AfterFLICS.ini you will need to press "Restart" option from the "Service" menu.

From the licenses tab, you can see which, and how many, licenses you have installed. Reported plug - in version does not reflect the most current update you have installed.

Refresh - Manually update the Licenses list.
Show Usage - Enable this option to list computers that are currently using one of the licenses.
