Next Steps: Getting Started and Additional Information

Creating a License from AMI

In addition to creating licenses from the 3Forge website (as mentioned above in the installation instructions), new licenses can be created/updated from AMI itself. To use this feature, please make sure the account is enabled for creating licenses.

to open up the license prompt:

1. Click Help in the top menu bar and select Enter/Update License


2. If you already have a license key generated and copied from the 3Forge website, paste the key onto the Enter License Key field. Click on the submit button and restart AMI for the new license to take effect. Continue onto step 3 if you want to generate a new license key.


3. To generate a new license key, click on the Generate License Key button.

4. A login form will appear which asks for your 3Forge website credentials.


5. Enter the credentials and request a license key by clicking on the Request License Key button.

6. A dialog box with the new license key will appear. Click on the Update License Key button to apply the newly generated key.

7. Finally, click on the submit button to finish the license creation process.

Remember to restart AMI for the new license to take effect.

Instructions for Secure Socket

  • You'll need to start by creating the certificates. To do this, keytool must be in your PATH.
  • First we create a server.jks file and a server.cer file which we will keep with the server. Note, replace serverpass with a password

keytool -genkeypair -deststoretype pkcs12 -keyalg RSA -alias 3forge_server -keystore server.jks -validity 1000 -keysize 2048 -

keypass serverpass -storepass serverpass -dname "cn=3Forge Client"

keytool -export -alias 3forge_server -storepass serverpass -file server.cer -storetype pkcs12 -keystore server.jks

  • Now lets create a client.jks file using the server's certificate, if you have multiple clients you should run this for each client (such that each time the client.jks file is unique for that client).  Note, replace clientpass with a password

keytool -genkey -deststoretype pkcs12  -alias 3forge_client -keyalg RSA -keypass clientpass -storepass clientpass -

keystore client.jks  -dname "cn=3Forge Client"

keytool -import -v -trustcacerts -alias 3forge_server -file server.cer -keystore client.jks -keypass clientpass -storepass clientpass -noprompt  

  • To configure the server, copy the server.jks file to the server, and add the following properties to your of AMI:



  • To configure the client, copy the client.jks file to the client and instead of calling the function AmiClient::start(host, port, loginId, options) call:

AmiClient client=new AmiClient();


client.start(host, port, loginId, options,new File("/path/to/client.jks"),"clientpass");

Instructions for Running Center & Relay Independently

The same AMI binary is configured to run as a center, relay, web or a combination of the three. Add one of the following configuration blocks to your amione/config/ to control what is run. If the file does not exist, please create it.  Note, that 3270 is the default port but can be changed.

Finally, keep in mind that the center starts up the server port and multiple clients (relays/web) can connect to a single center.

  • Default: Run the center,relay,web


  • Run the center


  • Run the relay


  • Run the web


  • Run the center,web


  • Run the center,relay


  • Run the web,relay
