Exerpt from the White Paper:
"Benefits of Network Licensing Network licensing is a powerful concept used by a broad array of workstation-based software products. The purpose of this white paper is to show how network licensing software can help you get the most from your software budget.
Network licensing helps ensure that your users have access to the right software at the right time and enables you to control the use of your software easily and efficiently. Effective use of network licensing software requires investment in planning, implementation, and maintenance. But, used properly, it can generate significant benefits for you and your organization.
Of course, all of the benefits discussed below are only available if you can get the network licensing software up and running during the installation of your software. With AutoCAD® 2005 software, we have introduced a new Network License Authorization utility. With this new utility and the Register Today software, CAD or IT managers can quickly and easily describe their license server configuration and company information and then submit that information electronically to Autodesk at any time and from anywhere in the world. This electronic transaction is then processed automatically (usually in a matter of minutes) and the license file is returned and placed on the license servers that the manager designated during the submittal process. The new utility works with both a direct connection over the Internet to Autodesk’s systems, and through email. We will continue to support phone requests, but this method will not be as automated as using the new utility."
