Q2: Can I transfer my existing license to a new machine?

Yes, you can always transfer an existing license to a new machine. However, you can’t use the same license key on more than one machine at a time.  You will need to uninstall Cerberus FTP Server from the old server, or decommission the machine, before you assign the license key to the new machine.

Please see our article on backing up and restoring users and settings for instructions on transferring your existing users and settings from the old server to a new machine.
