View Full Version : Looking for Linux Flexlm SDK 9.2

January 9th, 2011, 22:30
If anyone has these SDK's please PM me.

I've been trying to find any Solaris Flexlm/net SDK v9.2 and up...
The other option is to load a Linux Flexlm/net SDK v9.2 and up...
And yes I know how google works but I can't find sdk's for Solaris or Linux....

The problem I'm having is my target is on solaris 10 lntel system. It's a node locked license and the App uses a .so (shared object) to check the license. I've tyred using MBD then DDD for GDB to recover seeds from ".so" file. The App seems to have some way of detecting the debug process, it kills the app as a result I have to reload the os and software again. Now it could be that I just don't know how to use DDD and I'm killing to somehow. If some one has used DDD then please PM me.

The real goal is extracting seeds from .so file.

My thinking was to just build 9.2 sdk or higher on solaris then create my own App thats using a shared object ".so" file. Prove that I can recover my own seeds with DDD then replace the ".so" file with the real target and recover the seeds im realy after.

Thanks Jack

Hi redhatjack, if you managed to get a linux flexlm sdk, can you provide me with a link also? Thank you.

Hi Johnyjack,

Sorry I quit working on the project a few months back. But it's my understanding IDA will work on Linux. My problem is I'm really using Solaris 10 x86 (IDA Don't work on Solaris) so I was just looking for any work around. As I understand cracking flexlm on the Linux box without IDA for Linux is the same as it is on Sloaris.
Load the Daemon/APP in to IDA on a windows pc so you can search on where to place your brake points. Then on the Linux box load the Daemon/APP into ADB, MDB, GDB, or use DDD set the brake points and your ready to go.
If you can extract the correct seeds then you can generate a license on the windows system that will work on the Linux system.

Hi redhatjack,

Thanks for your reply. Regarding flexlm reversing on linux without an actual linux IDA, if I'm not mistaken, can be done as IDA can debug applications on linux through a connection (something involving a minimal ida linux debugger deployed on the linux box).

the linux sdk will be placed at exetools ftp many time ago...

Which is it "Will be" or "many time ago" ?

Not that I need it... In searching ftp.exetools.com didn't find linux sdk's for flexlm. If it's there post a link to it.
