Safenet Sentinel and Software license backup
I have to help a company that has a software running in 3 computers. The software is protected by Safenet Sentinel dongle (one computer) and by a dongle-less license (two computers).

One of the computers had a hard disk malfunction and its license is lost.

Is it possible to back-up the safenet sofware license to avoid losing the second computer?

I had difficulty to find a tutorial to emulate the other computer's dongle. I checked and it appears to be one of the possible solutions. Is this a good way to go or are there better options?

What is dongle-less license type?
Is it HASP SL?

You can check it here:

Is there any typical file or directory location I should search for?

Additional Info: When you run the software on the other computer without the dongle it opens a small window to offer you the chance to run with a password. In that case, in the next window it shows you a PC ID number and allows the password to be entered.

Is there any way to learn how the PCID was generated and how to create a password?

Seems it is custom protection.
You need find and analyze the code how the PCID generating and the password checking.

So, if it does not answer to 1947, it could answer to other ports.

The computer with no dongle does not answer in any port, but I checked also the computer with the dongle and found the following informations:

System address: http://localhost:6002 shows:
Sentinel Protection Server Version 7.6.0
Key type SuperPro USB

System address: http://localhost:7002/configuration.html shows:
Sentinel Keys License Monitor v1.3.1
SKLM Port : 7002
Server Port: 7001

sntlkeyssrvr.exe uses ports 7001 and 7002
spnsrvnt.exe uses ports 6001, 6002 and 1071
