I’m testing the float server and client. It works great for the purpose of using licenses on a single network. I assumed that the floating licenses would also cover the home/office use issue. I’ve got clients who have a home and office pc and want to use their single license on both machines. The regular license is inconvenient as you need to deactivate/activate to move a license from one pc to the other.
I’m wondering if the floating licenses are able to do this. Both pc’s would have the lexfloatserver running with the same product.dat and the same product key. The user can then lease a license from both machines. Assuming the product key allows 1 activation, the user can either lease a license on the home or office pc. But he is flexible where he uses this single activation and doesn’t need to deactivate/activate a node locked license.
But when testing this, it appears as it’s not possible to have two lexfloatservers running on different machines but for the same product. Is this correct, or am I testing in a wrong way?
