We have observed the following behavior, can you confirm that this is correct?

We are using a license created by passing a MAC address to the --allowed-server option of the encoder.

mac address validation on the server only works if the network interface with the mac address is connected to the network at the time of Apache server startup.

If it is not connected at Apache startup, mac address validation will fail, even if it is later connected.

We have to restart Apache after the network interface is connected, in order for the loader to pick up and validate the mac address.

This is possible. Please create a ticket in the support department at http://support.ioncube.com for more details. You can use the same user id and password as for your ionCube account to login if you're registered at the main site.

As a followup, upcoming Loader changes mean that the behaviour you observed may be changing. You might adjust init rules so that it's a prerequisite for networking to have started before the web server does.
