Linux Security 64 will not activate
So, I downloaded the most recent LS64, got it into PMC, exported, moved the zip to the server, installed prequisites (libfuse2 libcurl4 python).

I've replaced my pmc server name with <PMC_SERVER> above.
Here's the thing. I am installing this on a WAN DMZ server which I will use for filtering incoming material. It does not, and will not have access to the PMC server on the intranet, it would ruin the security viewpoint here.
There are cases when I need to install an F-Secure product on a device which has no connection to PMC. This happens sometimes with Windows products too. I've consulted F-Secure support about this, and they have said that it's allright to do so, as long as I have the licenses and the product packages are exported from PMC - not that any other way is even possible with .jar packages.
So far, it has not been a problem. This is the first product which seems to make that impossible. I would like some ideas for this.
