We have the following illustrations of FlexNet license manager installation for Floating licenses to share license access.
1. On a Workstation running both Lumerical Design Tools and FlexNet LM.
- The license manager is activated on 1 of the computers on the Local Network.
- This computer at the same time uses and run Lumerical’s photonic design software.
- The license is shared by multiple users on the same Network.
- Users can access Lumerical’s photonic design software at the same time (depending on the number of licenses bought)
2. Or a computer running FlexNet license manager as a dedicated license server.
- Both illustrations are the same except that the computer where the license manager is activated is not used to run Lumerical’s Design Software.
- To configure the license on the client computers to access the license from the license server machine, please see this short guide from our KB:
