Directly Obtaining Commuter Licenses
Before your network users check out commuter licenses, they must ensure the following:
>The portable computer must have a copy of the licensed application installed and ready to use. Remember, the application must be able to run off the network.
>The system is connected to the network.
>Has network access to the appropriate License Manager. (You do not need to set the lshost file or LSHOST or LSFORCEHOST environment variables to contact a specific License Manager because your user will be able to request a specific License Manager when using the commuter licensing utility).
•WCommute is a Windows-interface utility for checking out and checking in the commuter licenses.
•lcommute is a command-line utility for UNIX or Windows.
NOTE If Hard Disk Serial is being used as a local locking criteria for commuter licenses, administrative privileges are required to check-out such licenses using WCommute/lcommute or WRCommute/rcommute utilities.
>If the License Manager is set up on a dual stack machine, then both IPv4 and IPv6 clients can checkout a commuter token from it.
>If the License Manager is set up in pure IPv6 environment, then only IPv6 clients can checkout a commuter token.
>If the License Manager is set up in pure IPv4 environment, then only IPv4 clients can checkout a commuter token.
>The commuter token can be checked in only in the mode (IPv4 or IPv6) in which it was checked out even if the License Manager is set up on a dual stack machine.
