5. License Manager Server (LM Server)


The License Manager Server is a centralized software access system in a network. It facilitates floating licensing
for multiple client machines running Xeus Pro 5 and it functions in 2 ways:

Controls the program features that are allowed to be downloaded to each of the client machines by
verifying the Product ID (PID) of Xeus Pro 5 on the machines

Monitors the number of count for the client machines running Xeus Pro 5 actively. If the count exceeds
the max limit, any new machine will not have access to the program features till the max count is freeup.

E.g. max count is 50 means only 50 client machines can run Xeus Pro 5 concurrently. When a machine
closes the program, a free count will be available for any new machine.

Note:
The PID used in a floating licensing environment is the same for all client machines with the difference of having
distinct count for tracking purpose.
