What is the Network License Option and how does it work?


GibbsCAM Network License Option (NLO) - What is it and how does it work?

GibbsCAM v9 and later uses the Reprise licensing software to replace the standard hardware key (dongle) security. Reprise is best known for its ability to allow software licenses to be available (or float) anywhere on a network, instead of being tied to specific machines. Floating licensing benefits both users and license administrators. Users can make more efficient use of fewer licenses by sharing them on the network.

In a nutshell the NLO option keeps track of how many GibbsCAM options you have purchased and ensures that no more than that amount are in use at any one time.
