Geneious Software Guide
Ceres no longer has Geneious Server. The developer has discontinued that product.
Ceres does provide floating licenses for Geneious Prime which is the desktop client.
- The floating license server will only work at USDA sites or via VPN due to firewall restrictions.
- The Geneious Prime license server should work through both the regular USDA VPN and the SCINet ocvpn vpn servers.
- If you do encounter license server issues let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
First download the Geneious client from https://www.geneious.com/download/
Install it as usual and start it up.
Geneious will complain about not having a license. Click “Activate a License”
On the “Enter Your License Details” screen,
- select “Use floating license server”,
geneious.scinet.usda.govin the “License Server” box, and
27001in the “Port” box.
Geneious Prime can also be accessed via OpenOnDemand which will allow you to run Geneious Prime directly on a cluster node.
