Installation instructions are on the License FAQ tab.

The first time it is launched, you will be prompted for the location of the license server. At this point, select 'Specify License Server', click the 'Next' button, and enter mac29.hsls.pitt.edu

Open Finder -> Applications -> TextEdit, change the format to plain text (Format -> Make Plain Text), and enter in the above string followed by the 'Enter' key (this final keystroke is important). Next, use the File -> Save As dialog to save the file as .flexlmrc in your HOME. Use a default text encoding of Unicode (UTF-8), and make sure the box 'If no extension is provided, use '.txt'' is unchecked. When asked about using files that start with a dot, choose \"Use '.' \".
