License sharing with a floating license



How does floating license sharing works?

Where should FlexLM be installed and activated?

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.
