A client license is bound to a specific computer and allows a single user to access the FVA-Workbench. The license is tied to a hardware key. This key can be created with a small program "Keytool" or via the start dialog of the FVA-Workbench.
With a network license, any number of users on the same network can share product licenses. The license server program installed on a server controls the distribution of licenses to users.
To create a server license, the hardware key of the computer running the license server is required. This can be created with the small program "Keytool".
Using Workbench 4.5 - 5.0 and an older version on a network
For older versions of the FVA Workbench (4.0 and older), version 3.3 of the license server is required.
Both versions of the license server must be installed to run FVA-Workbench 4.5 and an older version of the FVA-Workbench (4.0 and previous) simultaneously using a network license. The license files are not compatible with one another.
Please note that different port numbers must be assigned for each license server.
