Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2012-12-13 10:22:21 CET
We've had several requests over the year for adding support for a license server to ThinLinc. The common use case is that the customer has many small clusters with limited use, or limited life times (e.g. only used for a single project).

There are existing third party license servers that we could integrate against (e.g. FlexLM), or we could write our own server.

This would be a nice to have feature. If we had this we could install thinlinc master/agents all over the place. Please keep the license model <user>@<client>.
Comment 5 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2020-06-16 11:50:08 CEST
Note that this can be achieved in some cases by using our subcluster feature.
Comment 9 Pierre Ossman cendio 2022-01-17 17:19:01 CET
Another existing server to look at for behaviour is Intel's Software License Manager that is used for their development tools.
