The FlexNet Publisher license server (the floating license server) from Flexera is used for managing floating licenses. The basic components of the FlexNet Publisher license server are these:
- license server administrator
- license key file
- vendor daemon
A floating license allows you to install and use the same license on multiple machines. The licenses are managed by the floating license server. The floating license server has information on the total number of products and editions you have and how many of these licenses are currently in use.
