Requesting Password and License Strings

Prior to downloading you should contact Artwork and request the following information:

  • ftp server login and password

  • program installation password

  • program license strings

  • include your full contact info.

In order for us to generate license strings you need to provide us your machine's ID. This is best done on Windows by downloading the lmtools.zip utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address and Disk Volume Serial Number that it displays. See below:

Dear Hagai,

I would like to evaluate your ODB2GDS program on Linux.Please send me the 
FTP login, the install password and temporary key strings for my 

ethernet address = 00560abE72

Reason for Evaluation
I intend to use the program to convert ODB++ board data and have some layers
plotted on a mask writer that requires GDSII.

Thanks much,
