Network licenses are FlexPro licenses which are installed on any server in the company and can be used by any number of FlexPro-users. The number of FlexPro-installations may exceed the number of licenses. The number of network licenses installed does specify, however, how many users are allowed to start FlexPro at the same time.
The issuing of a license from the server to the FlexPro-applications which have been started is file-based, meaning that no special software has to be installed on the server and that special protocols are also not needed. All that is required is a folder to which the FlexPro-users have read-access via the network.
The network licenses are managed with the help of the FlexPro License Manager. This tool allows the administrator to manage, i.e. to add or remove network-licenses. The FlexPro License Manager does not have to be installed on the server but can reside on any Windows machine. It requires read/write access to the folder containing the network licenses.
The FlexPro installations participating in the network installation are installed from the server onto the computers of the users. During the installation the user does not have to specify a serial number but can choose from a list of license types. The license type determines, among other things, the options which are available.
