Unfortunately, not. MAC locked binaries all the way. Actually, it's
really annoying having to open a trouble ticket if you happen to have
one of those ARIMA boards die a horrible heat death, just because the
license needs readjusting.

Like most proprietary software, the LNXI stuff seems to live in it's own
