Network Requirements - Concurrent Licensing

The network concurrent licensing system for the Clone Manager software consists of two parts -- a license server and a file server. It is recommended that both components be installed on the same network server, where possible. License implementation requires the TCP/IP network protocol.

License Server -- Administers concurrent licensing and grants permission tokens to clients that want to run Clone Manager. The licensing system is installed as a service on the license server computer.

File Server -- Stores the executable program files and program data files.

Additional Information

Although it is recommended that the license server and the file server be installed on the same network server, this is not a necessity as long as the license server computer will always be available and the license service running whenever users request permission tokens to run the program. The presence of a Security Center Firewall on the license server may require that you set an exception for the Clone Manager license service or an Inbound Rule (Server 2008).
