Locate the License Manager Computer

The application program must be able to identify a License Manager. This can be done by having the application broadcast over the network for a License Manager or by providing the application with the name of the License Manager computer. In most cases, it’s quicker to let the application use the broadcast method of finding a License Manager. With this method, you can change License Managers at any time and no changes are required for client machines.

Sometimes, you may want to direct an application program to a specific License Manager.

This can be done:

>To partition clients between License Managers

>Because the License Manager and client machine are located on different subnets over a large network and broadcast messages are undesirable.
