Floating License Server
This is a command-line application intended for groups, not for single users.
You will need to use the terminal to install and use this server. Do not buy a floating license if you are not comfortable with the command-line.
This is a floating license server for products that offer Floating and/or Render Only licenses. This server is required to be able to use Floating Licenses.
Once installed on your network, any compatible product can be assigned a floating license from the server.
Please note that only Floating (FLT) and Render Only (REN) licenses are able to be used with the server
This server is only required for Floating (FLT) licenses, Single User Licenses (SUL) do not require this server.
This server is a command-line application that requires setup using the Terminal and is intended for customers who need to manage a large number of licenses.
This server is free when purchased in combination with 5 or more floating licenses. Discount automatically applied in the shopping cart when purchased at the same time as the floating licenses. There is a limit of one free server per customer.
- Light-weight command-line application.
- Runs on Linux, Windows and macOS with a simple config file.
- Can be run on a VM as well as alongside other servers such as RLM.
- Simple address:port plist configuration for clients. A command-line tool is included to facilitate the creation of this file.
- Clients can also optionally be configured with an environment variable.
- Licenses can be requested and released from the client machine as well as directly on the server.
- Optional failover backup server configuration. (Backup server included in license)
- Configurable logging level.
- Optional hero list. These are machines that will automatically get a license when they request it. If the maximum number of licenses are already in use the oldest lease not on the hero list will be released without warning. You can use this feature if you have a machine that must always be licensed such as a rendering node for example.
- Optional blacklist. Machines on this list will never be issued a license.
- Optional whitelist. Only machines on this list will be issued a license.
- License code aggregation (add multiple license codes and they will be combined).
