Can I extend my 30-day evaluation period for Robo-FTP Server? (v3.2)

Table of Contents

Introduction

If your 30-day evaluation license has expired but you still need more time to complete your evaluation, then you may request a 30-day evaluation extension. This is a simple two part process. You must first submit some information generated by your installation of Robo-FTP Server. In return, we will send you a site key which you will enter into the software to unlock it for an additional 30 days.

This short tutorial walks you through the steps involved in this process.

NOTE: This tutorial applies to Robo-FTP Server v3.2.2. The steps may vary for older or newer versions.
