Meteobridge needs your OK to the license agreement before you are able to reach the other configuration pages. I guess you will not find something surprising in the license agreement, but please do read it before you accept by setting your mark.

How to License?

When you purchase an already licensed Meteobridge, you will just see a small license section which displays the license code. Otherwise, you will be offered two ways to move your meteobridge from a 14 day tryout version to a fully licensed version.

  1. PayPal payment is fully integrated in Meteobridge. When you have a PayPal account you can purchase a license with just a few clicks. Click onto the PayPal button which will will start a PayPal payment workflow. When purchase is finished, your browser will return to Meteobridge and licensing is instantly done. In addition to that you will also receive an invoice email for your documents, stating that you have purchased a license for this particular system.
  2. A License Key provided by smartbedded UG or the reseller you got the Meteobridge from can be inserted into the "License Key" field. Afterwards press "Register" to have the license applied to your system.

When licensing has been done successfully "Register" and "PayPal" options disappear. When you run into problems during licensing process, please contact "license(at)meteobridge.com".

License Agreement

Below you find the complete license text in an easier to read way (no scrolling). As meteobridge consists of separate parts, terms of usage have to reflect this. Most interesting question might be what part is Open Source (OpenWrt, under GPL) and what is propriatory owned and copyrighted by smartbedded UG. All propriatory parts are in strict compliance to Open Source license models. Dynamic and static linking is restricted to Linux libraries under LGPL. No GPL code is linked by or included into meteobridge application software stack. How to get access to the Open Source part of a meteoplug system (including information about a toolchain and the configuration files) is explained in section "Open Source Obligations" available from the menu on the left.
