License registration dialog box

Press the OK button. Another dialog box will appear, after you press enter, to inform you of correct or incorrect registration information. Please note that a service restart is required after entering a new license key.  Cerberus will prompt you to restart after successfully entering a new license key.

Once you have successfully registered Cerberus FTP Server, the “About” dialog box will display the registration contact name, company name, purchase date, and for how long the license entitles the user to free upgrades.
