Pleasenote that a FLEX license requires the installation of a licensemanager application on your network (You will later receiveinstructions on the topic at the time of your purchase).
Thelicense manager will require to be installed under Microsoft Windowseven if it can manage ARES Commander client users under Windows, MacOS X and Linux.
*NB:Before we can proceed to the delivery we will need to know yourpreferences. Please check and clarify the following parameters:*
1.*Number of simultaneous clients: 1*
You ordered a FLEX licensefor 1 simultaneous user(s). This means that the license can be sharedamong an unlimited number of people connected to
the licenseserver on the same network and location but never more than 1 at atime.
2.*Timeout: PLEASE SPECIFY *
The timeout is the duration inseconds before a license returns to the server when no activity isdetected. The value should be between 0 and 3600 seconds. The defaultvalue is 3600 seconds. The goal of this parameter is to avoid thatthe license stays unused while other users may need it.
3.*Max. Roaming Days: PLEASE SPECIFY *
Max. roaming days definesthe maximum number of days a user can take away a license from thenetwork. The value should be between 0 and 365 days. The defaultvalue is 365 days. When a license is taken away the user willmonopolize one simultaneous client until he returns it to the server.This is a flexibility for the user to work out of the network but youmay like to define a limit to avoid a shortage of rights for the restof your team.
4.*Max. Roaming Count: PLEASE SPECIFY *
Max. roaming count canhelp you define how many simultaneous clients can be taken away. Thisnumber should be between 0 and the total number of simultaneousclients you have. The default value is the same number as the numberof simultaneous clients. You may for example order a FLEX licensewith 10 simultaneous clients and define a maximum of 2 of them can betaken away to make sure at least 8 of them will remain on thenetwork. You may define 0 if you want to disallow the possibility totake away licenses at all.
Theseare parameters that need to be defined before generating the FLEXlicense and that cannot be modified after. Please review themcarefully. Some additional configurations are possible from theLicense Server administration tool you will install on your network(please refer t othe license manager documentation). You may forexample define yourself white or black lists. Please contact[email protected]if you needassistance to define such advanced parameters.
